HORZE info about the rug
The Horze Eczema Sweet Itch Blanket is perfect protection for your horse through the spring summer seasons.
This Horze Eczema Blanket offers great protection both against flies and the sun. Soft polyester fabric with special UV protection treatment for your horse's added comfort. Covers the whole body except the legs. Use with the matching Fly Mask sold separately (item # 22812) for complete protection. The Horze Eczema Blanket is like a suit of armor for your horse to protect against the blood-thirsty flies of summer.
The fabric is lightweight yet breathable to keep pests away while allowing air to circulate and your horse to graze in peace. The full neck attaches to the halter and if you complete the look with the optional fly mask, your horse will be completely protected from nasty summer bugs in the Horze Eczema Blanket. The strong Velcro straps help attach the belly cover and keep even the most determined flies away. The only area uncovered will be your horse's legs. Use fly spray or stable wraps and he won't feel a bite from any flying insects. The Horze Eczema Blanket will mean a calmer horse and ultimately a better ride for you.
Made of 100% soft and tightly weaved polyester, this sweet itch sheet prevents the smallest of insects and midges from getting through to the horses skin and causing irritation, leaving the horse comfortable.
The rug also offers great UV protection and prevents damage and also irritation in those horses that are photosensitive or need to reduce their exposure to dangerous UV rays due to pink skin.The rug is close fitting to the body and fully protects the horse from the neck down to the tail. It is fully equipped with adjustable flaps at the base of the neck and adjustable elastic straps around the neck and the hind legs with PVC clips.
The belly of the horse is entirely covered with a wide removable flap. This belly flap is a separate strip that is added to the rug after the main part has been put on, for further great protection. The belly flap doubles the protection of the flanks too because it also covers them and is wrapped around the body and clipped at the top of the back.
The rug is completely adjustable, making it snug and close fitting to your horses whole body. The position of the rug and the belly flap is secured and maintained clips around the body and through loops on the horses back and a velcro and clip anchoring system on the girth straps, in between the legs interlocking the belly flap in place at the front of the rug so that it doesn't ride back or remove any protection.
The rug is fully machine washable up to 30 degrees, in a normal washing machine.
