Prevents shoulder irritation under the winter blanket

By Windspeed

from Madison, WI

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Good Value
  • Stays in Place

Cons

  • Fits tight on a horse with very high withers.

Best Uses

  • 24/7 Turnout
  • Layering

Comments about UltraFlex® Shoulder Guard:

I use this under blanket layers for a horse without winter coat, who is now on 24/7 turnout in Midwest winter weather. This slinky prevents hair loss and irritation in the shoulder area very well.
My guess is that it fits the average horse perfectly, especially since it has velcro which allows size adjustment around the neck and under the belly.
My very high-withered horse, however, pulls the slinky up a bit in the shoulder and it is a tight fit for him. If you have a very high-withered horse, you may want to go one size up.

    Bought for my Thoroughbred who gets blanket rubs on his shoulders. I've only had it on him for two weeks but so far seems to fit well and do the job.

    Good product.

    Comments about UltraFlex® Shoulder Guard:

    I bought this to alleviate rub marks on the shoulders from a blanket. It has worked. I should have ordered it in a medium though. My horse is 14.3 and somehow I ordered a large. It's still serving its purpose so I kept it.

    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.

      • 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

          Answered on 1/5/2017 by 35mperfhorses from undisclosed
        • 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

        • A:

          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?
        Asked on 4/17/2016 by Anonymous

        1 answer

        • Staff Reviewer

          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.
