Rug Rubbing

Hello Everyone,

I have the prettiest grey arab but he has ugly black marks on his shoulders from the rug rubbing. He wears a bib under the rug and no bindings or anything touch where the rug is rubbing. He is clean as is the rug and bib so it is not from grit or anything. I have also tried baby powder on his shoulders everyday but it has made no difference. I was just wondering if many other people have this problem and what they do to fix or even just help the problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What is the inside of his rug lined with?

The rug is satin lined through the shoulders and neck rug and the bib he has on under that is also satin

Does the rug fit well? Sometimes just having a rug that is too small across the chest will cause rubbing. Whether its satin or not it can still cause rub marks

If its rubbing, its probably a fitting issue from my could possibly try a 'sleezy' or something

Like this:

Or possibly a blanket liner?

I was just about to say that. They make a great product called the "Lady Marrion" that is designed specifically for this problem. Here, take a look.
