As the winter arrives here in the UK, we expect a lot of rain. The horses which live out - even for only part of the day - are mostly rugged up especially if they have been clipped out. If they get too cold, then they lose condition.

My horse at the moment wears two coats - the top one is waterproof and is fitted with a hood. Some owners use detachable hoods - for use only when the weather is very bad.

The rug keeps the horse warm and importantly clean. I always fit a rug in the winter months. Looking in the tack room, she has 8 rugs of different weights for use throughout the year.

We refer to those rugs - the rug + the neck rug as combo rugs. Not hooded rugs. A hooded rug looks like this:Google Image Result for https://www.caribuhorsewear.com.au/images/D/Blue-Fly-mesh-Hood-rug.jpg Generally, but I guess it depends on where your from :)

I'm a little confused about what everyone is referring to as a hood now...

My horse is fully clipped and turned out, full time in a lycra hood. We have a fleece lined one as well for when it gets really cold.

Lol...me too!

To me a winter hood is the face/hood w/no blanket. It usually reaches to their shoulders. Mine is waterproof.

Neck rugs= only on the neck

Sleazy hood= lycra

Lol...this is just me apparently tho ;)
