Summer Horse Clothing: The Best Choice In Summer Rugs And Hoods

So the sun is shining lots and that’s great but spare a thought for your horse this Summer. Although the hot Summer sun is great it can come with it’s own issues as far as your horse is concerned.

Anti Itch Rugs

A good anti itch rug is essential during the long (and hopefully) hot Summer months. The bugs are out in force at this time of year so it’s good to know your horse is completely protected.

An anti itch hood from Snuggy Hoods gives fantastic protection and at the same time looks stylish. I’m sure your horse isn’t worried what he/she looks like but from an owners point of view it’s to be considered (along with practicality and comfort of course) Here at Snuggy Hoods we don’t compromise on anything when it comes to the design of our horse clothing. This is backed up by the fact that we supply our original horse wear to her Royal Majesty the Queen.

Detachable Fly Fringe

You can add a fly fringe or not with the Snuggy Hoods anti itch hood. Some owners love this particular add on as it gives full and complete protection for the head.

What To Look For When Choosing Summer Clothing For Your Horse

When choosing a rug or hood for your horse you will be faced with many different choices. There are specific blankets/rugs for keeping your horse cool. Some horse owners like to keep a full wardrobe of rugs and hoods for every occasion and season and some keep a minimal supply and buy as they need. Each way is perfectly fine, it’s all about what works for you. It’s very important to make the right choice for your horse so please do feel free to give us a call or drop us a line if you are unsure of which particular rug/hood to purchase.

All of our advisers are riders themselves so completely qualified to give the best advice on kitting out your horse for the Summer. Our original Summer horse rugs are used by olympic riders and the Royal house hold.
