Comments about UltraFlex® Stretchy Mesh Slicker Hood:

This hood does not have a piece that runs between the front legs to attach to the band around the barrel. This causes it to ride up on the mane when the horse puts their head down. It does not do me any good to have to stand and keep pulling it back in place. I like the material though.

Comments about UltraFlex® Stretchy Mesh Slicker Hood:

I love this slicker hood. It is easy to put on and stays in place very well. I use it for horseshows to keep the mane in place. Wish it came in color other than white, but it has stayed fairly clean since I only use it for shows. I would buy it again without a doubt.

Comments about UltraFlex® Stretchy Mesh Slicker Hood:

This is my second purchase this Winter. The first one ripped with extended use but overall this is a good product and most importantly the only white one I can find. I have a purple one from another manufacturer which was ok until I left it on in a rainstorm, and my grey pony became a purple on! I found the Large fit snugly on my 14.2 pony.

Much nicer Stretchy for hot weather!

By Mystic's Mom

from Goodyear, AZ

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Cooler For Horse In Heat
  • Good Fit
  • Waterproof and Breathable

Cons

  • Easier To Snag
  • Need More Colors

Best Uses

  • In Stall Only
  • Warm Weather

Comments about UltraFlex® Stretchy Mesh Slicker Hood:

Because of the air flow through the mesh, my horse stayed cooler in our hot AZ winter and didn't rub his Stretchy like he does with the solid ones. However, he did manage to catch the mesh on a small protrusion, which promptly ripped a small hole.

    Comments about UltraFlex® Stretchy Mesh Slicker Hood:

    I won 2 of these a few years back. I used them all the time because of the quality, ease of use, and how it enhanced preparing for showing. Now I own several and go out of my way to purchase these for each show horse that is going to a show. Awesome quality. Incredible price and the horses don't destroy this type. Whoever designed these did a terrific job!!

    • Q:

      Have there been any issues with the head part being pulled into the eye area by rubbing or a pasture mate and causing eye problems? Have seen this happen with sleezy hoods and I am wondering if it would also happen with this one. I plan on using it under my horse's fly sheet to keep his shoulders from being rubbed raw.

        A:

        We have not had issues with the slicker moving around and going into the eye. You do not want to turn a horse out with other horses while wearing the slicker hood. If you are looking for shoulder protection to avoid rubbing under a sheet we recommend UltraFlex® Shoulder Guard, item #10545.
