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. With both hands, gather the shoulder guard like you are putting on a sock. The neck opening is the large opening without the elastic strap. Then, put your horse’s head through the neck opening. Slide the sleazy shoulder guard down the neck to the shoulders. Close the girth strap on the left side. Your Lycra shoulder guard should fit smoothly, like swimwear, on the horse’s shoulders. Otherwise, if it is too tight, it could create a rub.
Shoulder Guard Care
Because this horse sleazy shoulder guard contains 87% Cordura nylon/ 13% Lycra, it is machine washable. Air dries fast. Also, follow our simple Care Instructions for best results. Wash the shoulder slicker at least once a month to prevent bacteria buildup.
