In severe heat we always recommend bringing your horse in to be stalled
Anything left on a horse unsupervised in a turnout paddock including rugs / fly nets / fly veils / halters / hoods and so forth can always carry a potential risk, animal welfare is very important to us at Horzehoods therefore we recommend you check your horse regularly and never leave garments on 24/7. Please alternate your horses wardrobe and realise anything used on your horse is at owners own risk, therefore regular stable or paddock checks and suitable secure fencing are always highly advisable
Ideal as a multi-functional hood to aid in the management of summer problems experienced by many horse owners around the world. The properties of the fabric have been reported to help with Sweet itch sufferers, allergies, sun burn and particularly white & dark colored horses which suffer immensely in the heat and sun.
The product also has a built in Velcro attachment along the nose which pairs up to the Velcro detachable nose net should you find a need for this, which we provide as a free accessory, included in your purchase. It is optional to the owner if they wish to use alongside the hood or not.
We found with the heavy fabrics that are currently on the market for summer months, that they were easily adaptable to withstand the field environment but not very lightweight making it hard for the skin to breath. A horse already suffering with allergies can be exacerbated by heat, causing overheating and sweating, which can act as a breeding ground for bacteria and allergy based skin conditions. Therefore by having something super lightweight on as opposed to a heavy fabric, the Verano hood will help protect the skin from the elements such as the sun and also flies, without compromising your horses comfort, as is possibly with the lack of breathable of a thick, woven, more waterproof hood.
We suggest you let the hood protect the skin and let a lightweight rug or fly rug protect the hood. The hood is not designed for sole use on its own for turnout. It is designed to be used in conjunction with a rain sheet or fly sheet to add additional protection and act as a barrier for your horses skin.
Price Includes, Fully Adjustable and Detachable Nose Net, mesh bug eyes and a full Meryl fabric hood. Made from luxury Meryl Fabric. The fabric also has a built in water 'repellent' so will act perfectly against stable stains and help keep your mane and coat in trim shape throughout all seasons.
