We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Kensington Protective Neck Rug is rated 3.7308 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ok This Hood does not stay attached to the fly sheet. Also robbed one of her horses shoulders Raw the first night. Perhaps just the wrong fit. Going with Rambo

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird fit I'd say my horse has a pretty average build. He's a 16 hand warmblood and even though I bought the large it was super right under the neck. Plus there isn't much coverage under the neck which is wear the gnats get my guy. The attachment goes way down on to the sheet. Overall the fit just seems odd. Probably should have returned it as I have no intention of using it. I purchased a Rambo Vamoose sheet as well and am so much happier with fit. The rambo has belly cover, great loose neck and shoulder coverage and my guy doesn't sweat in it. The Kensington is a nice fabric and it tents so air can flow nicely but it still seems hot in general.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but could be improved This neck rug is the usual great Kensington quality. Super durable. However, I wish the coverage was a bit better and, like the sheets, the sizing is a bit of a head scratcher--I ordered two in the same color, same size and they are different--one is a little bigger than the other. (??)
