Design your horse shoulder guard to fit your needs! Every shoulder slinky comes with a Velcro® closure on an extra-wide and extra-comfortable girth strap. If you prefer an ABS side-release buckle on the girth, we can do that for you. You can upgrade the girth elastic to premium, heavy-duty woven elastic. Also, you can add a center yoke between the front legs or the extra-wide center yoke for more coverage.

Our customized fit system ensures your horse gets the fit you’re looking for. No one size fits all like the other brands! But your horse isn’t average? We can adjust our patterns to your measurements. Call us or use this Measuring Guide.
Easy on/Easy off
In general, most horses tolerate things around their heads. Therefore, putting on your horse’s shoulder guard is easy to do. Open the girth closure. The big opening, without the long elastic strap, is the neck opening. Put your horse’s head through the neck opening and slide it down to the shoulders. Close the girth strap on the left side. Finally, your chest slinky should fit smoothly, like swimwear, on the horse’s shoulders, but not too tight to create a rub.
This horse sleazy shoulder guard is made from 80% nylon/ 20% Lycra. Therefore, it is machine washable and air dries fast. Also, follow our simpleCare Instructions for best results. Launder the sleazy shoulder guard at least once a month to prevent bacteria build-up.
Shoulder Guard to the rescue!
We received a call from a distressed owner whose foal had a large chest wound. She explained to us that she needed something to hold the bandages in place. She, also, needed it a little higher than a normal shoulder guard and she needed it right away. We were surprised when we saw the pictures. We were not expecting to see anything this huge.
How does it stay on?!
After talking to the customer, we made the “bandage cover” a little higher up the neck with a Velcro adjustment. We also recommended a center yoke to help hold it in place since the patient is an active youngster. A week later we received this email… “He is feeling so much better. He decided to roll this evening, then jump up and kick out. The Sleezy stayed right in place along with the bandage. It is working great. Thanks so much for your prompt response to my needs.” …Jane, TX
