Fitting your heavy-duty horse chest slinky – Most horses are tolerant of things pulled over their head. 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.
This horse shoulder guard contains 80% Cordura nylon/ 20% Lycra. For that reason, it is machine washable and air dries fast. For best results, follow our simple Care Instructions. Be sure to wash your horse chest slinky at least once a month, otherwise, bacteria will build-up.
