Nice adjustable fit shoulder guard.

By Michelle

from Monroe wa

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Durable
  • Stays in Place
  • Waterproof and Breathable

Cons

  • Neck line was a bit to far up on each horse

Best Uses

  • Indoor/Outdoor

Comments about UltraFlex® Shoulder Guard:

We have three different horses that we have purchased this for. It fits pretty well over all but I am finding that neck line is a bit to far up the neck line and puts a bit of pressure. Overall it like the adjustments etc which does provide a better fit overall.

    I bought a replacement for one I've used 4-5 winters

    Pros

    • Easy to Clean

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • 24/7 Turnout
      • Everyday Wear

      Comments about UltraFlex® Shoulder Guard:

      Using this prevents rubs on the shoulders. If I don't use it, the moment I take off the blanket, my horse bites at his shoulders.
      In pasture-living, of course it gets picks and small rips, but I use 'iron-on patches' and it lasts several years.

      Comments about UltraFlex® Shoulder Guard:

      I use this for under my TB Mare and older QTH geldings blanket to prevent blanket rubbing. I bought one 2 yrs ago for my mare and it lasted through 2 winters so I bought them again. It doesn't add a lot of weight or warmth but definitely keeps the blankets from rubbing in certain spots. And I think they like the silky feel.

        • Q:

          Would this keep the blanket from rubbing part of their manes out?

            A:

            Yes, It will help the rubbing on the mane.

            Answered on 1/9/2017 by Customer Service from Chagrin Falls, OH
          • A:

            Maybe, but it is more for protecting the shoulders from rub marks from the blanket. It does cover the mane at the top of the shoulder too so it might help.

          • A:

            It sure helps with the hair on their shoulders being rubbed out, mine
            hasn't rubbed his mane out with it but I bought it for shoulder hair

          • A:

            Yes. I got this for that reason and one of my horses gets chest rubs too and that has it been an issue since I put these on them

            Yes, most definitely. I have two Friesian with long manes. They both wear them with the V-Tek Wither Relief blankets, and I have had no issues with their manes. I highly suggest using this product.

        • Q:

          My horse is a solid 80" in blankets. Typical QH build. Would you buy a Large or X Large since a size 80 covers both?

        • Q:

          The fly sheet rubs my TWH's mane off so I need something to protect against more rubs. I live in the desert and it gets hot here during the summer. Can this be used year round or will be too hot for him.

        • Q:

          Would this help against sun burns on the shoulder, so without a blanker over it?

            A:

            It can be used without a blanket. I would think it would help but there is no actual UV rating on it.
            It also is not going to hold up very well to turnout as it is only lightweight lycra. I would suggest looking at our soft fly sheets that have UV rating on them.
