Arrow Shoulder Guards?

Recently I posted a thread about my horse getting rub marks on his shoulders from his blankey. I've tried the sleezie shoulder guards in the past, but after about one year it was trashed. It was really worn out and actually made the rubs worse.

What brand would you consider to be the best? And have these helped your horse's rub marks?

I really don't want to go buy a "bra," just for it to stretch out and make it worse

I have no idea what brand mine is, but I've used it for two years and it's going strong. I would probably just stay away from a sleezy one, and don't get a cheap one.

I use it because Ricci's blanket rubs the top of her withers, it works like a charm.

Sleezy is a brand right? I thought they were all called sleezys...haha

I'm not sure if it's its own brand or not, but I think so. I can't describe the material, but there is one material that I kist can't stand. The one I have now is similar to a pair of athletic pants without being spandex-like, if that makes sense.

I highly suggest getting the original sleazy. I have 3 hoods and a shoulder guard and they're all still great after 2 years of being worn all winter.

And they come in some awesome colors...

Thanks guys!

Right now I'm looking into getting the ones that either Dover offers or Schneiders...Dover is more expensive but I wonder which one is better. Hmm...

Mine is a Tomara Equestrian. I LOVE it, I think I spent about $25 on it on eBay. But it's got a soft lining, the buckle at the girth still works like it's brand new, and the neck has Velcro so that you can adjust it.

Thanks for all the advice guys. I had to exchange my cooler from Dover for a different size anyway so figured I'd save on shipping and order the one from there. It was $35, don't know the brand but am hoping it's a good one!!

Yes, Sleazy (actually, it's "real" name is Sleazy Sleepwear for Horses) is a brand. Lycra horse wear will not/should not stretch. I've had a ton of lycra products, from tail bags to hoods to full body sheets. Nothing has ever stretched.

I know lot and lots of people love "Bossy Bibs", I however have never had experience with them. Bossy's Bibs Web Site -

I personally am not a big fan of the Sleazy brand stuff. After using other brands, I find it to be quite inferior. I absolutely LOVE everything from Schneiders. The stuff they carry is much higher in quality. My most recent purchase (which I just received yesterday) was a fleece lined winter lycra hood, and oh my it is absolutely fabulous. I am very happy with it and I can tell it's going to be SO much more durable than one I had from Sleazy. Here's a link to their shoulder guard.

Edit: Ahh, I see you've already made a purchase. I hope it works well for you. Being under a blanket anyway, it's much more "protected" than say, a lycra hood (unless of course there's another hood over it).

The more expensive ones here work quite well. Mine's got the straps on to keep it straight or else they seem to spin round. You sort of get what you pay for.
