Belvoir Rug Company Honsie Life - Regal Navy with Red Trim

 

TheHonsie Life is a fantastic product for keeping your horse or pony clean and pristine prior to competition, for keeping the chill off on the cool summer evenings, as a second skin underneath a winter rug on those cold, and often snowy days, or in one of the many other ways our customers tell us that the Honsie is used for, including sweet itch prevention.

 

The Honsie is made in high quality Italian Nylon Lycra and uses a technical type of Lycra, called Xtra-Life Lycra. Our Honsie contains a small amount of compression qualities within the fabric, this helps the product stay in place on your horse when in use. The fabric used is very similar to premium swimwear material and has many benefits over less expensive Nylon Elastane fabric, it’s natural characteristics mean that it is resistant to Sweat and Oils, helps protect from UV rays in the sun, is quick drying, does not degrade as quickly as less expensive fabrics and retains it colour well (and is also Chlorine resistant should you want to take your horse or pony for a dip in the pool !!). Xtra-Life Lycra lasts upto 10 times longer than conventional Lycra and has superior qualities in terms of it’s resistance to break down and shape retention.

 

The Honsie product is bound all of the way around the edges to help retain its shape, and the eyes, ears and nose areas are bound too, also helping retain shape and preventing slippage, or ovalling of the eye holes, helping prevent the hood move over the horse or pony’s eyes. The under-tummy band holds the Honsie in place and the leg straps hold the rear in place .

 

Whilst the Honsie is not water-proof, the qualities of the fabric do prevent mud and pooh passing through which helps keep your horse or pony clean when prepared for competition, the slight compression will help hold plaits in place and the qualities of the compression and will help make the coat shiny.

 

A Honsie is simple to put on and take off, simply draw the head and neck up like you would a pair of tights onto your hands and with your back to your horse, simply slip the Honsie over its face and head, some horses may not be as compliant as others and for these horses we offer the opportunity of a zip being added as an optional extra.

How to fit a Horse Rug

A horse rug is an essential part of caring for your horse and a rug that fits correctly is key to protect your horse and keep them safe and comfortable.

 

Measuring your horse

 

Feet and Inches

To measure your horse, use a soft tape measure and measure from the centre of the chest to the end of the buttocks.

 

Centimeters

To measure your horse for a rug with European sizing (cm) measure from the withers, across the back to the top of the tail.

 

Fitting a rug

 

The rug should fit well over the withers and the shoulders so that the horse can move freely without the rug slipping back.

 

The straps should be tight enough to hold the rug in place, but not so tight that they cause the rug’s shape to distort on the horse’s back. If too tight they may cause pressure points around the horse’s chest and wither area.

 

Cross surcingles should be fastened so you can fit a hand’s breadth between the surcingles and the horse’s body. This means that the straps are tight enough to prevent legs becoming caught should the horse lie down, but not so tight to cause discomfort.

 

If the rug has leg straps, they should be fastened so that the left strap is passed around the left hind leg and fastened back to the left side. The right strap should then pass around the right hind leg, loop through the left strap, and then fasten to the right side. There should be about 4-5” between the strap and the horse’s leg to prevent the rug slipping without causing the horse any discomfort.
