Why We Love This

Give your horse some extra protection with the SmartPak Ultimate Neck Rug. Sturdy snap attachments with two additional Velco® closures allow you to easily and securely attach this neck rug to your SmartPak Ultimate Turnout. It’s also our toughest waterproof neck rug yet with a 1050D ballistic nylon outer that resists rubs and tears, making it the ideal choice for a horse that is tough on blankets. Plus, it’s also waterproof and breathable to keep your horse warm and dry and has a nylon lining for maximum comfort. Finally, we’re so sure it will last for years to come that we’ve backed it with a 10-Year Indestructible Guarantee. We’ve got you and your horse covered – no matter what! 

Available in Light (0 g), Medium (220 g), and Heavy (360 g).
Imported.

10-Year Indestructible Guarantee – the fine print: 
We are so confident in the toughness and durability of the SmartPak Ultimate Neck Rug, that if anything happens to this blanket within 10 years of your purchase, we’ll replace or refund it—no matter what! It’s that easy. However, the guarantee does not cover blankets that have embroidery stitched anywhere other than the surcingle straps, as it compromises the integrity of the blanket.

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    SmartPak Ultimate Neck Rug is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 92.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great look, good water repellency I know all neck covers create gap. But I'm not settled. I like the ventilation, but I also want more cover. This is my idea. Maybe brilliant smartpak people can do it?
    Date published: 2020-05-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seemed to be fine until.... I bought four of these to attach to four blankets I also bought from SmartPak. Only used one so far. The one I used got multiple long cuts in the material when my horse took a fall while in turnout. I would think this material would be stronger than that, but it did save the horse from cuts! Getting it replaced was a hassle too. It took over a month.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds up well These neck rugs are great for horses, like my gray mare, who just love taking a mud bath! She has 2 so I can clean the layers of mud off one while she wears the other. At first, I struggled to adjust the velcro straps so the the neck rug would cover the top of her blanket adquately to keep her dry in precipitation and keep the base of her neck and withers mud-free. The first one that I bought for her was passed down to our large pony and I bought a large for the gray mare. She wears a 75" blanket and the large size neck rug is a great fit. Plenty of overlap over the blanket to keep her covered--even during her wild and crazy pasture antics. My 16.2 draft cross gelding wears 81" blankets but the large neck rug was too tight on his neck. So I bought him an XL Rockin SP neck rug and got the perfect fit! So my recommendation is to size up on these neck rugs for adequate neck coverage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! After buying a used smartpak ultimate neck rug I am slowly replacing all my blankets with them as it’s time to replace the old neck covers. My only Issue is that I wish they came in more color options! : )
    Date published: 2020-01-07
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alright It does it’s job, but it definitely could be designed better. The overall shape is very straight and doesn’t fit the shape of a horses neck. I’ve found it gapes in the front and snow/cold can get in. I will say though, I do like the double Velcro. Makes it so if the first Velcro comes undone, the whole thing won’t come off.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Holds up, but don't like the attachment mechanism I've had this for a few years now, and while it has held up, I do not like the way it attaches to the blanket. My horse always ends up with a gap between the neck cover and the blanket, and the buckles and elastic rub on his mane cause hair to fall out. I am finally giving up on this and am going to switch to a different neck rug/blanket combo that attach more securely, and more safely.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Well I bought the Ultimate Turnout Blanket in heavy and lite and picked up neck rugs to go with both. Let's be clear: the design is not amazing. SmartPak could definitely make improvements to the closure and the blanket attachments. However, the hoods have kept my horse warm and dry and have held up to his antics. I was worried that they would flip up often as other reviewers have noted, but my horse (who loves to roll and generally roughhouse) has only managed to get his heavy hood to flip up once. I have only used the lite a few times. While I haven't seen it flip yet, it is pretty flimsy. As for fit, I went with my gut and ordered larges. My OTTB wears a 78 in SmartPak blankets but has a short neck, so I wasn't sure. The heavy-fill hood fits well (I definitely wouldn't want any smaller). The Lite fill is a good length but has a ton of room under the neck. Altogether, these are decent neck rugs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit is great! I bought this in a lighter weight earlier this season, so I knew this one would fit as well. Good quality and now my guy is ready for whatever crazy weather we get this winter. Took a bit to get to me, but may have been a supplier issue.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Neck Rug for Price Unfortunately, one of my horses pasture mates ripped it within the first 3 days. Rip is on inside so duct tape will fix it until it needs to be professionally repaired.
    Date published: 2018-01-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, fit issue for perch x This is more of a fit FYI for other customers - I am a big fan of the Smartpak Ultimate products and will continue to be, but my Perch x Appendix QH has a super thick neck and these were a little too tight around his throat for my comfort. He wears an 80/81" and both the medium and large were too tight. I'm going to give the Rockin SP Ultimate neck rug a try so fingers crossed. As usual Smartpak Customer Service went above and beyond to help with exchanges and service (tag removed not an issue, speedy delivery, etc) so it still gets 5 stars.
