** 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

Measure Your Rug
Fitting Guide

  1. Measure from the centre of your horse's chest to the buttocks where you would expect the rug to finish.
  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.


Please note, all measurements provided are approximate and for guidance only.

    "Bought for my new cob who l, although doesnt have sweet itch, is reacting to midge bites. Her skin is much calmer with this although still not 100%. Rug coverage is excellent, sizing is generous with plenty of space in the neck and the fabric feels tough enough to last. "

    "The fly rug is good quality and although it seems a good fit in most places, the shoulder vents are alittle short in length so gives my Dutch Warmblood alittle restriction and hoping they won’t rub this area."

    "Ordered 2 of these for different shaped ponies, who wear 5ft6 & 5ft9 and both fit them really well. Good all over coverage in areas you would expect from a sweet itch rug & the neck is generous so the ears remain in the soft ear cover when grazing. Reason for purchase:- One suffers from mild sweet itch on tail and mane and so far both are intact. The other seems to be a fly magnet! She has a couple of dormant sarcoids that flies love to target and gets lumpy, bumpy hives from horse fly bites. Again, so far the rug has helped enormously & is less agitated when out. "
