The Point of Neck Sweaters

I've never used one but saw someone using one the other day. I was wondering what the entire purpose of them was.

Do you mean actual neck sweats or mane-stay/sleazy type tamers?

Yes, an actual neck sweat.

It's used to sweat the neck and throat latch area to create a "prettier" neck. It's supposed to slim down the neck by sweating the fat off it, and shaping it into a more favorable shape.

Certain breeds are more prone to getting "Cresty". My mare needed 100 pounds put on her when I bought her 8 weeks ago. She's now at optimal weight, but her neck is a little more cresty than I'd like for our breed shows. So my trainer will be mixing up a concoction of alcohol and glycerin during the summer for our work outs, spraying it at the crest, and putting the neck sweat on her. After a couple months of doing this, the cresty neck will not be so apparent.

She's a Morgan by the way, one of the breeds that get cresty.

I was thinking Id spray some on my hips and wrap up in some plastic wrap while I ride, and by August, we'll both be less fatty for our show LOL

They do actually have some for humans. I'm assuming they're made of the same material.
