    Stretchies Shoulder Guard is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 94.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbed horse I bought it to stop blanket rubs on my horse but the first time I used it he got two rub marks on his chest. Has not used it since then, do not know if it’s a product error or what. The guard stayed in place so it didn’t cause irritation cause it slipped or anything.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart within a week I had been waiting for these to come back in stock as my horse had been getting shoulder rubs from his blankets. I put it on him and within a week, the elastic was separating from the stretchy materials and there were loose threads everywhere. Really disappointed in the durability. I ordered the correct size (XL for blanket 84) and my horse isn't destructive of his other blankets. Not sure why this fell apart so quickly but definitely didn't hold up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality For the Price I ordered the shoulder guard when my horse's blanket was rubbing his mane on his withers. It has done the trick!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps! Helping to alleviate the shoulder rubs from daily blanketing. Was so happy to find something to do this.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for us My paint horse is clipped for the first time this winter. Now his blankets are rubbing his shoulders. This shoulder guard is very tight in its neck opening. So immediately stitches popped and seams unraveled to allow it to stretch enough. The buckle closer for the belly strap ends up being where your girth goes and being a big hard plastic buckle, caused rubs. Velcro would be more comfortable and versatile in that area. After 2 weeks of use my horse is now way more rubbed and hairless across his entire chest then if I would not have used this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works I purchased this shoulder guard because my mares sheet was rubbing her shoulder on the hot walker. I think it will work fine. It warmed up so I haven't put it to the test yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfect. Works just as intended! Fits great and stops the shoulder rubs

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stretchy Shoulder Guard I bought this a month ago because to Gypsy mare was getting a blanket rub on her wither. The Shoulder Guard works great, but the size is too small. The sizing chart said for a blanket size 74 - 76 buy a medium. She wears a 74 blanket so I bought the medium. However, the neck hole is too small. Due to it being too small the hem has ripped out half way around the neck hole. Next year I will invest in a large size.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not hold up Great Concept but it caught on his blanket and ripped in the first week.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly to Prevent Shoulder Rubs! Bought this because last year my lease horse got really raw on his shoulders from blanket rubs. So far this seems to be working perfectly. The only complaint I have is that the strap seems to loosen every time he wears it so then it hangs down. I purchased an XL for him and he’s a 16.2 Hanoverian gelding.
