The NEW Snuggy Base Body Under Rug is sure to become a 'must have' in every equine's wardrobe. Copying the best selling design of the Summer Bug Body - only being marginally heavier in weight and a bit more sensible in colour for the muddier months.
Covering poll to tail including full belly coverage it is a headless option pleasing customers who don't wish to cover their horse or pony's face.
Constructed of the same clever fabric as the turn out hood, headless turn out hood and winter under rug, the Base Body Under Rug is perfect for use as an under Rug or extra layer in the colder months to keep your horse or pony warm with a clean and dry belly. Stops winter coats coming through as early and keeps a clipped coat for longer. Also helps to lie the coat flat and add shine.
The Snuggy Base Body comes as a two piece neck and rug combo for versatility and ease of fitting. The rug part- with built in full belly band and XL flap. The neck piece then slips over the horse's head and is secured to the top and sides of the rug's neck with Velcro leaving no gaps.
The top of the neck sits closely behind the ears even when the horse stretches down to graze and is elasticated, with adjustment, to prevent any insects getting inside. The mane area of the neck is lined with a seamless, silky, non stretch lining to prevent mane rubbing/hair loss.
Small straps are fitted to the withers and chest section of the rug to prevent gaps. The withers and chest areas are padded and elasticated to prevent pressure. Three Velcro patches are fitted to the rug and belly each side to achieve a close Snuggy fit and a strong ant-stretch binding is run along the spine of the Base Body to keep the rug in shape and prevent it slipping backwards.
Use under any rug or alone in warmer weather. For the ultimate protection you can team this together with the Turn Out Head to offer full face coverage.
Sizes - 4'6" to 7’3” - PLEASE NOTE - The sizes are generous due to the stretch in the fabric so if your horse/pony is between sizes, choose the smaller.
Choosing the size - please remember that the fit design is tight and that there is stretch in the fabric. The rug must not hang over the base of the tail - with the seam for the tail protection sitting just above the base of the tail. The rug neck is designed to sit high, a good 6 inches or so in front of the sensitive wither area. The neck must be tight. Some customers do order 1-2 sizes smaller to ensure the close fit needed. Try on the horse and pull the rug back to test it for length... Any concerns, please get straight in touch with photos before removing the rug in case it needs to be exchanged. We can also offer alterations for all in-between sizes and used items.
Colours - Burgundy, Navy or Black
