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.

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 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'!).

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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All I own I smartpak blankets and I LOVE them. I own 4 smartpak ultimate blankets and 2 hoods to keep both my horses fully outfitted during the winter. I have very little problems with them, but when I do smartpak is quick to help out with an exchange no questions asked. So happy with all of these products.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I wanted to love this neck cover but when grazing the part but the withers flips up leaving the area exposed and opening it up for rain to get in there and run down the neck. Completely defeats the use of a neck cover for me.
    Date published: 2017-05-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matches the turnout bundle I bought this along with the Ultimate Turnout bundle. It is a midweight neck cover that works with the bundle.
    Date published: 2017-04-19
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great if your horse doesn't roll I have the ultimate heavyweight and sheet and love them, so I decided to get the neck rug. My horse likes to roll, and as a result the neck twists and the part on his withers flips up, so I have to keep fixing it throughout the day. I'd like to see the tabs that keep it on be shorter, wider, and closer to the edge so that it stays in place better and if it flips up, not as much would flip up.
    Date published: 2017-04-07
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy Fabric and Construction! I bought this about a month ago and have been happy with the performance. I wish it had come in XL because the Large is right on the edge of being big enough. My horse generally wears an 80-81" blanket and this neck cover advertizes up to 84" butcI am not sure it would fit a horse that wears and 84". Having said that, I will say it is working so far.
    Date published: 2017-03-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable! My horse is HARD on his clothing! This is the most durable hood and not even his field-mates can destroy this!
    Date published: 2017-03-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps the horse dry This neck cover is easy to attach to the Smartpak ultimate turnout sheet and blanket that I bought for my gray mare who loves to stand in the rain, sleet, and roll in the mud! It's easy to put on and take off, stays in place all day even though she is a bucking, rolling fool, and easy to fold and store on nice days. She seems comfortable in it and it provides good protection from precipitation so I can count on having a dry horse when I bring her into the barn at night.
    Date published: 2017-03-07
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I absolutely love the Ultimate Turnout Blankets. Clipped my horse's neck this year so I bought a medium fill neck rug as an addition. It has done well over the winter so far, however, my main complaint is how the neck cover attaches to the blanket. The dorsal midline attachment is a clip, the other two are velcro straps. While this seemed good in theory to allow stretching, while removing the neck rug one of the velcro strips pulled right off its strap by about 50%. I have used a braiding band to secure it for the rest of the season but do plan to exchange it for a new rug. I would rather all of the attachments be made with clips. Otherwise I absolutely love this neck rug. I also wish they had a heavy weight in addition to a no fill and medium.
    Date published: 2017-02-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and secure fit. The hood length is generous and very adjustable. I like that the hood doesn't twist or flip up.
    Date published: 2017-02-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good materials, except the Velcro I give it a four, because the outer and inner fabric is good, the clips seem decent quality as well, however the Velcro that attaches to the blanket is subpar. The little piece of Velcro is not seen on very well and this is a problem because my horse just peels it off after that. I went through three, with a wear time of between 4 hours and a night out. I gave up after three and got a combo blanket for the cold nights. So if your horse peels clothes off or has a friend that likes to help, this might be a gamble. SMARTPAK CUSTOMER SERVICE ROCKS AND LAUGHED WITH ME! Everything but the Velcro is great.
    Date published: 2017-02-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and fits well. I ordered this to go with the matching waterproof turn out sheet. It fits perfectly. I will say that the Velcro is really hard to deal with, though it does keep the rug in place.
    Date published: 2017-02-02
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could attach more securely Although I haven't found the hood flapping off in the wind, I will say that the hood runs large and it could attach more securely than 2 stretch tabs and a clip. My arab has a size 72'' Ultimate Sheet and I ordered the Medium hood, which looks fine when I first put it on, but normally I find him with his neck half-dirty because the hood has slid down his neck. Going to exchange it if I can for a small hood.
    Date published: 2017-01-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from really functional I have used this for about a month and I really like it. So far no problems with durability and it's easy to attach. I got a medium for my 15.3 TB who ears a 75 blanket and it is fine, glad I didn't get the large since he is on the cusp of the sizing.
    Date published: 2017-01-21
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I bought a blanket to match this. The blanket wet totally through on the first night my horse wore it. The blanket and the hoods were sold as water resistant. I will NEVER buy a blanket or hood from Smartpak.
    Date published: 2017-01-18
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't Stay On I love smartpak and they have great customer service that helped a ton with this issue, but I cannot give a high rating for this hood. I got a new hood for this winter, I didn't have any issues with the older design. This new however will not stay closed, I find it nearly everyday flapping around barely clinging to the blanket. It all culminated when the hood fell completely off, ripping the D ring off the blanket and tearing the velcro attachments. After uttering a few choice words, I threw the blanket and hood in the wash and shipped it back to smartpak. They gladly took it back and exchanged it for a high neck medium weight. I am very happy with the fit of the high neck, I think it actually fits better than the blanket on my girl.
    Date published: 2017-01-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Great I ordered this hood to go along with the matching blanket. I am pleased with purchase. It attaches snugly to the blanket and the Velcro closure secures hood well around neck. So far it has held up great to the abuse of my 4yo and keeps him warm when it temps dip
    Date published: 2016-12-31
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As usual, very tuff stuff! Recently purchased the neck rug to match Casino's Ultimate, heavy blanket. Now he is mostly protected from the winter elements and is hopefully comfortable and that makes me feel comfortable.
    Date published: 2016-12-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Blanket!!! Fits great and very durable. Great leg straps to withstand the test of time. Surcingle straps are built to allow for movement and stretching. Bought this for my daughter's hard to fit Pont and loved it so much I bought the matching hood!

    Date published: 2016-12-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit with the Ultimate Turnout I purchased the neck cover to go with an 87" Ultimate Turnout blanket. The neck cover is a size large(the biggest option) and it is a bit small for my horse. I wish it was a little longer and wider, but it covers part of his neck. His Thoroughbred toddler-friend can get the attachments off, so it has been destroyed once but thanks to SmartPak's warranty system, I got a new one at no cost. The reason why I got the Ultimate Turnout and neck cover is because of Smartpak's great customer service and 10-year warranty.
    Date published: 2016-12-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, Fits great, easy to attach I bought a large medium weight hood to use with a size 78 medium and heavy ultimate TO. Fits perfectly. My guy is a 16.1 h 1200 lb TB/clydesdale. Sturdy construction and quality materials. Couldnt be happier with the set. It is replacing a Smartpak Classic set that was beat to pieces in 2 winters. Quality and construction of the Ultimate set is far better.
    Date published: 2016-12-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality and love the 10 year warranty. Fits my ZIPPO great and he looks so handsome and seems to keep him toasty warm. Love the velcro straps to attach the hood to the blanket to the hood or visa versa. So far, so good.
