Our Hybrid Attached hood combos combine the best aspects of both a polycotton rug and mesh - all in one rug.
The strong Euro-Mesh inserts in the neck and skirts allow extra airflow, keeping your horse protected from the harsh Australian sun & insects while still keeping them cool on those warmer days.
This Attached Hood Rug is great for year round use. The hood is permanently attached directly to the horse rug. The convenience of a Combo, but with the extra protection of a hood, with a hood poll strap*. Our hood poll strap is an added feature to help reduce the risk of the hood moving. We do allow extra length in the necks so that the horse can graze freely.
Features our 300gsm Diamond weave PolyCotton ripstop which is both strong, but still breathable and cool. The tear/ripstop threads give the Caribu Rug strength and durability.
Don't like Enclosed Ears? With this design the ears are attached & bound in such a way that if you prefer to use the hood permanently without ears - they can be cut off down low and the ear hole will still remain bound and prevent fraying.
How are our Hybrid Horse Rugs different?
Apart from the fact that we use a high end Diamond weave ripstop fabric, we also use our strong and durable Euro-Breeze Mesh in the neckline and skirts. Its both cool and offers good insect protection. These are a durable Hybrid Horse Rug made to last!
