Snuggy Hoods Bug Body Rug – Beige

(1 customer review)


The Snuggy Bug Body® is set to become a ‘must have’ in every equine’s wardrobe.

Covering poll to dock it is a HEADLESS OPTION – pleasing customers who don’t wish for head coverage on their horse or pony.

Constructed of the same clever fabric as the Sweet Itch Hood and Rug, the Bug Body is robust yet lightweight and fully breathable, water repellent, stops coat bleaching as well as protecting from midges, other flying/biting insects, dust and dirt.

The Snuggy Bug Body comes as a two piece neck and rug combo for ease of fitting. The rug – with built in belly band, tail wrap and flap is fitted FIRST. The neck then slips over the horse’s head and is secured to the top of the rug with Velcro.

The top of the neck sits closely behind the ears and is elasticated with adjustment to prevent any unwanted visitors getting in. The mane area of the neck is lined with a seamless non stretch lining.

Small straps are fitted to the withers and chest section of the rug to prevent gaps. The withers and chest areas are elasticated to prevent pressure. Three Velcro patches are fitted to the rug and belly to stop gaps and a strong binding is run along the spine to keep the body of the rug in shape and prevent it slipping backwards.

Plus there is also the option to add the Sweet Itch Mask, as well as Front Legs, Sheath Cover or Udder Cover for extra coverage for severe sufferers.
Offering poll to dock protection – the Snuggy Bug Body® is the most innovative, protective ‘Bug Body’ on the market.

When the neck is detached the Rug is suitable for use alone, with any Snuggy Hood, other hood or any rug. Also excellent as a under layer in winter months, with or without the neck section.

The Bug Rug is usually made to order so please allow 10 – 15 days from order to delivery.



Bug Body Horse Rug

We recommend you order the rug size your horse usually wears. If in doubt you can measure your horse’s/pony’s rug size using a tape measure.

Measure from centre of the chest around the body to the back of the hind leg, to one side of the tail.

Different fabrics have a different amount of stretch and therefore may fit differently. Please read the following advice when choosing a rug size or if you are unsure.

Our weatherproof rugs have a medium amount of stretch so order your horse’spony’s usually rug size or the closest size to their actual measurement. This applies to the Sweet Itch Rug, and Bug Body.

If in doubt please contact us for advice. All Rugs come complete with fitting instructions to help you when trying on for the first time.
