If you require the horse’s head to be covered you can choose the Sweet Itch Mask to use with the Headless Hood for amazing protection. Using with the Sweet Itch Mask gives you the choice of face coverage or not as required.

Different fabrics will fit slightly differently due to the difference in stretch. Please read the following advice if you feel your horse may be between sizes or you are unsure which size to choose.

Our weather proof fabric has a medium amount of stretch so choose the size which best describes your horse when referring to the size guide above. This applies to Sweet Itch Hoods, Sweet Itch Heads and Headless Sweet Itch Hoods.

Please contact us if you have any questions about sizing. All Hoods come complete with fitting instructions to help you when trying on for the first time.
