6 summer essentials your horse needs
Summer is in the air. But are you ready for summer yet? Read our summer essentials guide and get ready for summer with Kentucky Horsewear.
- Mesh combo cooler sheet
This rug is so multi-functional that you can use it all summer long. The rug can be used in the stable or field as a fly sheet. Thanks to the 3D spacer on the back and the mesh fabric on the sides, the rug is very air preamble. The rug can also be used during transport as the anatomic design adapts to your horse. The mesh combo is also the perfect drying rug after training or washing as all the materials are light and breathable.
- Brushing boots 3D spacer
In a previous blog post, we’ve already mentioned why we love 3D spacer so much. The material is shock-absorbing, highly breathable, and comfortable to wear. In the brushing boots, we’ve added EVA foam for more shock absorption. Therefore, we can ensure your horse’s protection. Thanks to the light and breathable structure of the brushing boots, it’s very comfortable to wear on warm days in the field or during training.
- Fly mask slim fit
During summer we cannot avoid flies, but we can protect your horse against them! The fly mask slim fit can be used in the field as well as during training. Thanks to the stretchy soft lycra, you can easily slip it over a bridle. The eyes of this mask are very special as it always pops back into its original shape. No more eye irritation for your horse.
- Saddle pad softshell
The lightweight saddle pad is perfect for summer. Thanks to the softshell outside and the cotton-polyester mix inside, the saddle pad is very breathable and moisture-wicking. The fabrics of our saddle pads are fast-drying, so after an intensive work out you can easily hang it to dry and use it later. We advise you to wash your saddle pads more often if your horse is sweating a lot as this can cause rubbing marks.
- Fly rug
If your horse is easily bothered by insects, a fly rug cannot be missed in your collection. The Kentucky fly rug is designed to offer the most comfort while also offering the best protection. That’s why we included a detachable neckpiece, triangle closure for less pressure, and a belly flap that stays close to the rug. On top of that are the mane, chest, and tail area lined with smooth polyester to avoid rubbing. With the fly rug, you and your horse will have many worry-less summers!
- Plaited nylon halter
The plaited nylon halter is with its colorful designs perfect for summer. Not only the colors but also the materials are very summer proof! The base of the halter is artificial leather. This strong material does not break when the weather is dry and warm. But even greater, it is not affected by water. So, when you’re bathing your horse, you don’t need to worry that your halter is cracking. Therefore, the plaited nylon halter and lead are the perfect everyday stable accessories during the summer months.
