A unique sweet itch rug that has been developed to block entry from even the smallest of insects. The Bucas Sweet Itch Zebra Print Rug features an elasticated, detachable belly flap offering full body cover.

Taking the lead from their hugely successful Bucas Buzz Off Zebra range, Bucas have developed a fabric with the synonymous Bucas Zebra stripe that prevents the tinier biting mites, culicoides midge population, from getting to the horse. Prevention is the key to the sweet itch problem so ensuring the horse is covered before the midge biting season prevails will help this miserable syndrome.

The first of its kind, this sweet itch/fly rug with zebra-like stripes prevents equines being bitten by the offending small biting flies and repels the bigger, aggressive horse flies by the confusing zebra stripe proven by scientists to keep them away.

This unique Sweet Itch Zebra Rug is made from a specially developed fabric that blocks entry from even the smallest of insects. Particular attention has been paid to the mane and tail areas ensuring that they are protected to prevent the itch – scratch cycle that is synonymous with Sweet Itch.

The design is a full body cover, with a neck that reaches to the ears covering the whole mane area. An elasticated, detachable belly flap covers from the elbow to the sheath, offering protection to the horse’s whole body. Shoulder darts enable freedom of movement and a generous tail flap covers this hugely problematic area, preventing the small biting flies reaching the tail. Leg straps keep it firmly in place during your horse’s time in the field, and an overlapping, padded and lined front ensures it stays comfortable no matter how long your horse needs to wear it.

Bucas Sweet Itch Zebra also offers UV protection for horses preventing sunburn and stopping the coat from getting bleached.

* Please note: This is a very rough guide and should only be used for first reference. Measurement should be made using the fitting guide below
** If using this size guide based on the height of your horse the variance is the amount of sizes that your horse could vary by depending on the length of their back

Fitting Guide

  1. To find out your horse's rug size measure from the centre of the chest to the rear of the hind leg.
  2. Once you have the measurement refer to the rug sizing guide above (for guide purposes only)
  3. When you receive the rug please ensure you try the rug on over a clean sheet. This keeps the rug clean and hair free allowing for its return if the size is incorrect.
  4. Check that the rug fits correctly - Correctly fitted horse rugs should not be too tight across the shoulder & should reach the base of the horses tail (excluding tail flap)
  5. The rug must fit correctly before leaving the horse unattended. A rug that is too tight may rub and pull across the shoulder. Too big and it may slip and be trodden on.
  6. Please Note: Except in the case of faulty goods we are unable to except returned rugs unless they are clean, hair-free, include all tags and are suitable for re-sale.

My question about Bucas Sweet Itch Full Neck Rug - Zebra Print is...

Professional Opinion

“I love the design of the Bucas rugs. The Stay-dry material, which wicks away moisture, is fab as it means the horses dry quickly, keeping them warm in winter but cool in summer. They also fit the horses really well, never slipping, with an overlap at the front to protect the chest from being rubbed. The detachable surcingles make the rugs easy to use and wash. We particularly like the Power Cooler range as they can be layered which makes keeping the horses comfortable at competitions a lot easier.”
