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'!).

    SmartPak Deluxe Neck Rug is rated 4.1333 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good crossover I bought this in lightweight for my other branded turnout sheets/blankets. The other brand only had medium or heavy hoods available. I simply sewed a new ring to the wither pad on the blanket/sheet and was able to attach this hood just fine. I use it only periodically for heavy cold rains or very snowy days. The black matched my sheets fine and kept my horses' necks dry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought separately from Blanket but Perfect fit Did not buy neck rug since did not think it got that cold here but this winter is much colder and wetter than usual. Would have ordered the wrong blanket but customer service saved me. Easy fit and easy on and off, my mare seems to like if. Keeps mud off her mane.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Initially great...but broke quickly I bought this to go with my ultimate turnout blanket, figuring I'd save a little $$ and get the cheaper neck much abuse can a neck rug go through anyways?? Well about a week and a half after purchasing my mare came in with the neck rug un-velcroed but still attached to the blanket, the top velcro piece has fallen off, the stitching had come loose. It was still attached to the neck rug and I was able to stitch it back on. I contacted smartpak and they were great! I was able to return it (had to wash it first) and in the meantime purchased the Ultimate neck rug and have been happy with the quality of the ultimate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers well Fits great. The only problem I have with it which was the same problem I had with the quilted one I purchased the year before is that the stitching for the velcro tabs are not reinforced so I had to repair both neck covers. Once that was done they both stay closed very well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I was looking for in a neck hood. This is pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I was looking for a Weatherbeeta neck cover but they don't make them anymore sold separately. So this was a good runner up. I like the material and neck closure much like Weatherbeeta. The top strap is to short to attach to the blanket I have so I just use the Velcro on the sides. I also would have preferred a 300 gram fill but that was not an option so I got the 220. It seems well made and over all is getting the job done.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good protection Purchased this neck rug for a little mare who is in an in/out stall in all weather. It has given her good protection from the wet weather we have been having. It is on 24 hours a day and has stayed put. Just what I was looking for.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
