Shetland Water Repellent Lycra Hood With Zip
The Shetland water repellent lycra hood with zip is made from four way stretch nylon quality Lycra and have been treated so they are water repellent. They are not waterproof but will absorb less moisture if used within the stable environment and out in the field they will be shower proof and absorb less mud if rolling. The hoods are designed to help keep plaits in place, manes flatter and pony cleaner especially when rolling – so useful for lighter coloured ponies or for show preparation! They are made from Lycra so will not tolerate barbed wire or persistent rubbing on trees etc without snagging.
The hoods are suitable for Shetlands but will not be suitable for miniature horses as they are designed to accommodate the broader face of the Shetland and generous manes and forelocks.
The hood has a zip from chin to chest to make it easier to put on and off and also has a strap between front legs and elastic strap at girth point with fastener to help keep the hood securely in place. There is a fleece nose band for comfort and also to help stop the coat from marking.
The hood is machine or hand washable and must be dried naturally. It is essential that no biological products are used (if machine washing – run the machine on a boil wash before washing the hood if biological products have been used). The hood comes packed in a zipped bag with handles – useful to store the hood when not in use.
