Keep Your Horse Clean, Tidy, And Ready For The Show

Tired of those cheap Chinese horse hoodies that seem to be in every tack shop? Want American-made quality you can trust? You’ve found it in our Lycra Sleezy Hood! These “easy on, easy off” stretch horse hoods keep bands and braids neatly in place before the show. Trains the mane and keeps the head, neck, and shoulders clean and fly-free. Plus, there’s no polar fleece on the noseband to pick up shavings and other debris—a major source of rubbing and irritation for your horse.

  • Made in the USA
  • Uses a premium 80% nylon/20% Lycra blend
  • Fabric resists tears and snagging, with excellent “memory”
  • Keeps braids and bands neat, tidy, and hay-free
  • Trains the mane while polishing the hair coat
  • Extra-large eye holes and adjustable nose band for the perfect fit
  • Extra length over withers for greater comfort
  • Uses Gutterman thread for extra ruggedness
  • Deep shoulder coverage
  • Perfect as an additional layer of warmth or to prevent chafing
  • Machine washable

Fitting your Lycra Sleazy Hood – Most horses are very tolerant of having things pulled over their heads. Your slinky should fit smoothly, like swimwear, over the horse’s head and neck, but not too tight to create a rub.  Make sure your horse’s eyes are in the middle of the eye holes. If the eyes are too far in one direction, the sleezy could rub your horse’s eyes when he moves or stretches. Then, make sure his ears are also in the middle of the ear holes. If they aren’t, the sleazy could rub his ears and cause a lot of discomfort. After all four holes are in place, adjust the nose band to keep the slinky in place.

PERSONALIZE your Lycra Sleazy with your monogram or name, your horse’s name or advertise your farm or ranch. We’ll embroider up to 12 characters per line (including spaces). We recommend selecting a contrasting thread color that will show up.  You can also add a Bling Design. Designs start at $5.95.

Need help with your costume for that “costume class”? Horse costumes are our specialty. Give us a call, we’ll be happy to assist you.

Because these horse sleezys are made from 80% nylon/ 20% Lycra, it is machine washable. Air dries fast. Follow our simple Care Instructions for best results.

    Wow! What a surprise to receive our custom sleezy in the mail in such a short time! We took it to the barn to try in on Darby and she certainly looked great! A really nice fit and quality work!

    I just wanted to let you know I received the sleezy today and I love it!! Our show mare has had the same one for like 4 years and the zipper finally broke at the last show. It was just a plain green one. She will be stylin at the Palomino World show next week. I just love the’s so soft and the long throat zipper is great. Also it’s hard to find a X-large and she really needs that as she built like a tank (halter mare). Thanks again…I am so pleased and I will let all my friends know (as I’m sure to get alot of compliments) about you and keep you in mind for future purchases. Thanks again!!

    Hi! I have purchased a sleezy and shoulder guard from our business and I was just sending you this to tell you how much I have enjoyed them both. I have used my sleezy at many 4-H horse shows and other events in order to keep my horses braids in overnight. It has really made all the difference. Thank you so much for your wonderful selection of horsewear in a variety of colors and sizes at a very affordable price. I will be sure not only order from you again but I will also be sure to pass this wonderful website on to my friends. Thanks so much.

    I just cannot say enough good things about your sleezy horse wear. I purchased a horse hood and a stretch sheet three years ago and they still look and fit like brand new. I have tried others that claim to fit better than yours, but we ended up returning them because your products fit much better. We have just ordered new colors and can’t wait to get them.

    I just received my sleezy and hood and tailbags and I just wanted to say WOW! I have never seen anything as nice as these anywhere. I love the material, the quality and the design of your sheets and hoods. From top to bottom there is nothing cheap about these..all top quality. Thank you so much and we will be ordering another set for our other horse soon! She has a set, but nothing this nice!   Thank you again for the fast service..we are very pleased!

    Sleezy Barb Horsewear products are fabulous. The quality and workmanship are top of the line. The customer service is exceptional and the fact that you can choose exactly what you want with so many color choices surpasses any competitors hands down.

    I just wanted to say thanks for several things: first for prompt delivery of the two hoods I ordered and second for the fine quality of the hoods! Wow! I’m always leery of ordering from a company other than a well-known brand, but I was convinced by the info on your website that I’d have a fighting chance of getting a decent product at a decent price. Both hoods definitely exceeded my expectations! They’re made of substantial material and are well put-together. I wow’ed my buds at the barn with the wild print, not to mention my horse Smoothie, a 9-yr old paint gelding, who seemed quite pleased with the notion. Since he’s already rolled in the mud with it (I should have expected that trick), I’m already considering a new order. Thanks for a really good product

    Your sleazy’s really last – Thanks for such a great product. I bought some 3 years ago and they still look great!

    I thought I would never be able to find a sleazy that fit my horse properly. Your custom alterations got me the perfect fit for my stud colt. Also I appreciate the quick ship. We are leaving for Congress tomorrow and the hood arrived in plenty of time. Thanks, Barb

    Just wanted to let you know how much I like the hood I bought recently. I have used several different brands over the years and when I first got this one I was a little nervous because there was no zipper or Velcro, but to my surprise it is the best fitting sleezy I have ever used. It took the horse a little bit to get used to putting it on, but now he wears it fine and it stays put, just like second skin. Anyway, just wanted to let you know.

    I just wanted to let you know that we received our sleezy yesterday. It is so nicely made and such a nice size. Great job! Glad we found you, we will definitely order from you again. The girls always have to have the latest fashions.

    Very happy with sleezy I ordered. Quality of workmanship and materials are great. It’s been a pleasure ordering from you.

    Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the sleezy I just ordered from you. I have a mostly white paint horse and am looking forward to a summer where his neck stays clean and his mane stays white instead of turning yellow! I will be ordering another one at some point because I like having two of things – one in use and one in the laundry. Thank you!
