Introducing the Headless Hood - Everything you love about a Horzehood - 'Minus the head'!

 This can be a safer version than a full faced hood for horses in paddock situations.

  • Copyright Multi 4 Loop BibSystem.
  • High Grade Sherpa Fleece to sit behind the horse's head.
  • In Built Elasticated band hidden for comfort inside the Sherpa Fleece which can help prevent neck covers from slipping back.
  • 4-1 Mane Saver Fabric, Shoulder Guard, Bib & Neck Cover.
  • Zip chin to chest.
  • Quality Fleece Elasticated Finish.
  • 4 way stretch fabric blend.
  • Full circumference elasticated adjustable girth.
  • Derlin buckle clip fastener rather than Velcro which can potentially unfasten easier.
  • Breast design to mould and enhance movement of shoulder

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Any headless hood on the market will and can never be as supported on the neck as a full face hood. The design features of a full face hood offer more fit and stability, however can be a risk in a paddock scenario if snagged on something and pulled over the eyes.
 
This is where a Headless Hood comes into its own in regards to safety.
 
Headless hoods are mainly in demand for covering the lower section of neck where the turnout rug joint of a combo for example, can rub a mane away.
 
Even though there may be a little movement or pull back on a headless hood, it will still cover the majority of the neck, and the section that needs to be protected.
 
The right size and fit is important with the headless hood. You want a very snug fit, as the fabric is shiny and if it is too big in the shoulder it can create more slip back than is normal, so please follow the Horzehoods specific size guide. (Click on the size guide link.)
 
If you are unsure of the size you have received, please try it on a clean horse, with swing tags still attached and you are welcome to return for another size should you require it. Just be careful not to let the velcro snag the fabric if you intend on returning the hood for a size exchange.

    Headless horse hood

    It fits well however it got a small tear in it after only a few days. It was on my older horse too who’s not generally rough in equipment

    Hi Liane, unfortunately the same aspects that make these hoods so good at coat conditioning and mane protection, can make them more vulnerable to damage. It's a fine line to walk unfortunately, however the designers in the UK prioritised function and fit as their main goals. The fabric should not run/ladder. I'm sure it will continue to work for you, but please contact us with photos if you have any further problems.

    I love the product great for protecting my horse’s itch in mane. It’s been well made although it’s slightly snug for a thick necked horse, but quality fabric. One minor issue is the band comes loose from clip underneath.

    Thanks Catherine, good to hear from you. Do you mean the elastic girth comes out of the clip or something else? We'd be interested if you could clarify so we can pass this feedback on to the UK team who design these.

    Absolutely love this product

    Love them,

    They get rid of the bulk of a shoulder guard and keep the mane nice. They also add a bit of warmth. Plenty of give so doesn’t restrict movement
