Snuggy Hoods Sweet Itch Anti-Itch 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’s\pony’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.
