Snuggy Hoods Sweet Itch Mask – Beige


The Snuggy Hoods Sweet Itch Mask offers excellent coverage for face, ears and eyes and is designed to be used with the Bug Body (attaches with D-ring and velcro loop) or with a full high neck fly rug/summer sheet. We recommend the Sweet Itch Mask for the following uses – Sweet Itch prevention & allergy/fly/insect/UV ray protection.

This unique Sweet Itch Mask has built in ears and mesh eyes. It is lined in the mane area behind the ears with a silky fabric and has elasticated adjustment in multiple places for a close, secure fit. The Sweet Itch Mask comes either as a pull on or zipped option for easier fitting.

Constructed of a robust yet lightweight and fully breathable fabric which prevents insects biting, and is also heavy showerproof, stops coat bleaching (harmful UV rays) whilst keeping your horse or pony clean!

The optional zip runs from chin to under the neck. Without a zip the Sweet Itch Mask is ‘pull on’ so simply slip over the nose and pull backwards into position.

Designed for use with the Bug Body Fly Rug but is suitable for use with any full neck fly rug or summer sheet. Also ideal for use with the Headless Sweet Itch Hood for optional face coverage. The Sweet Itch Mask will attach to the Bug Body neck or Headless Sweet Itch Hood with a metal D-ring and strong velcro loop for security.

A spare Velcro loop is provided so the Sweet Itch Mask can be attached to the neck of an alternative rug for added security. We strongly recommend customers attach the Sweet Itch Mask to a rug neck as instructed in the fitting information sheet. If you need help with this please contact us before using the Mask.

Usually held in stock, and we can order in for you if not in stock at point of order.

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.
The weatherproof 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 Masks and Headless Sweet Itch Hoods
