Caribu's Euro-Breeze 270gsm Fly Air Mesh Attached Hood Combo Horse Rug is a revolutionary lightweight summer alternative.
This custom made air mesh offers superior UV and insect protection, but still allows plenty of breeze to pass through the fabric and across your horse, keeping the horse cooler.
The hood is permanently attached directly to the horse rug. The convenience of a Combo, but with the extra protection of a hood*, enclosed ears and a hood poll strap - all in one. Our hood poll strap is an added feature to reduce the risk of the hood moving. We do allow extra length in the necks so that the horse can graze freely when their head is down.
Also featuring Removable ears - 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.
With a generous drop, tent tail flap and belly surcingles this horse rug has been made with the Australian climate and horses in mind.
Many find that the Euro-Breeze is a very good alternative to Flag rugs, offering many of the same benefits - but with a much more durable fabric that performs like a traditional mesh or ripstop horse rug from a strength perspective. Euro-mesh is our mid-weight air mesh if you have a horse that is hard on rugs you may want to consider our heavy 410gsm Enduro mesh rugs.
