Our horse Lycra Shoulder Guard protects the shoulder and wither area against troublesome blanket chafing—and also helps prevent hair loss. Made of soft, supple Lycra material, it’s form-fitting and comfortable while allowing your horse total freedom of movement. Stop rubs before they start, or provide protection to help existing ones heal over.
For information on the cause of blanket rub marks and how to prevent them, please see our FAQs page.
In general, most horses tolerate things put over their heads. Therefore, putting on your horse’s shoulder guard is easy to do. Bunch up the shoulder guard neck opening like you are putting on a sock. 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.
Because the horse Lycra shoulder guard contains 80% nylon/ 20% Lycra, it is machine washable. Air dries fast. also, follow our simple Care Instructions for best results. Wash your shoulder guard at least once a month to prevent bacteria build-up.

I had to use this product to protect my horse’s shoulders during the fall and winter while he’s blanketed. He had rub marks on his shoulders. Now his hair is growing back all within the past few weeks. It’s true to size and stays in place.
