About us


Snuggy Hoods was founded over 20 years ago. Originally a small ‘attic’ business it grew rapidly through local demand for horse and pony hoods that weren’t then available on the UK market.

The original Sweet Itch Hood and Rug were made for a Dartmoor pony that Marilyn bought to keep a horse on box rest company! Unbeknown to her at the time this pony was an extreme sufferer of the condition. She made a 'summer weight' hood and matching rug to cover him which worked amazingly and the Sweet Itch Body was 'born'.

In 2001 the company became ‘Limited’ and in 2012 Snuggy Hoods were honoured to be awarded ‘by Royal appointment’ after supplying Snuggy products to the Royal Mews, namely, Her Majesty the Queen for a number of years.

All of our staff have vast equestrian experience and excellent product knowledge. We are always happy to help with pre-purchase questions, fitting and sizing or just general horse chitchat! 

We are a small, friendly company, based in Holt in rural Wiltshire. The office is always busy as we have a number of ‘helpful’ dogs. Firstly we have the watchful eyes of Reggie and Scooby who are Chloe’s Jack Russell Terriers. Then we have Rachael’s yellow Labrador puppy Amber and Becky’s French Bull Dog puppy, Bobbi. The boys do a great job of ‘guarding’ the office and the girls do a great job of keeping the boys in check!
