    Stretchies Shoulder Guard is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 92.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for Ranger The shoulder guard protected the skin condition my horse had on his white shoulders(he's a paint). It wasn't too hot and stayed on securely. He's better now and places are not covered but the guard kept flies and dirt out of the open sores til they scabbed up. it's more durable and comfortable than you would think. Since he didn't need it anywhere else it was Perfect as it Covered only the affected area. It was easy to put on and take off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! My almost 2 year old chincoteague filly (stands at just about 13.1) has the smartpak plaid blanket which was rubbing against her withers on the one side that wasn't protected by the mane. I bought this for a temporary solution (purchased a high neck blanket in the next size up for next winter). Within two weeks of use, the rubbed area which had previously lost all the hair is starting to regrow. I purchased a small and it fits my narrow youngster perfectly and I suspect that it will continue to fit her for a bit while she starts to fill out even more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really helps with rubs My horse had a rub on its right front shoulder from its blankets and being so dry this winter. The rub has practically filled in after a month of him wearing the shoulder guard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Should Guard I bought this guard because my OTTB was getting shoulder rubs from her blanket, this helps with the rubs, the hair is growing back. I didn't have a problem with the neck being too small as some other customers said, it fits her fine.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Returned this item I read the reviews and saw the neck hole ran small so I ordered an extra large. My horse is 16 hands, not huge. I was disappointed to find the neck hole was way too tight for him even if I waited for it to stretch. I returned it and found one that was half the price and had an adjustable neck hole.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good blanket rub protection Bought to protect my ottb from blanket rubs on his shoulder from his baker stable blanket. The neck was a bit snug at first, but with gentle stretching and some use it loosened up enough. Like the piece that goes between the front legs to keep it in place and prevents it from rotating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for keeping haircoat in winter Have used these shoulder guards for many years, only way to keep away those rubbed shoulders that come with blanketing. They do wear thin and stretch out over time so will need to replace periodically.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the part that comes down the center and under to help hold it down. The neck was a bit snug on my overweight thoroughbred but seemed to stretch out enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I purchased this product because my horse was getting rub marks from his blanket. It is a great product, wears easy, easy to get on and off. I picked it because of the buckle clasp.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Idea - Caveat: neck opening too small 16h Oldenburg; wears 78 blanket. I ordered large & extra large because he is built! Fit was ok, but the neck opening was too small to be comfortable. If it fit better, I'd have kept it

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs really small, overall a disappointment I ordered the large initially for my 15'3 hand gelding, it was super small so I easily returned it (thanks SmartPak) and had them ship out the XL. The neck was still a tad tight but I figured it would stretch out a bit, which it has. The more worrisome issue is the plastic surcingle clip which broke after 60 days. A disappointment for the price. I would not buy this shoulder guard again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great middle piece, holds shoulder guard in place This shoulder guard is pretty nice, except that the neck opening is VERY small. It is quite tight. I am going to try and open it up somehow by taking out the seam a little bit. The middle strap is nice, as it holds the shoulder guard in place.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Quality I purchased this for my daughters mare who is getting a blanket rub. Great quality and stays in place. But I feel this ran a little small. Ordering next size up

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect sizing I bought this to replace an old one. It fits my Arabian mate perfectly and I like the material. It doesn't generate as much static electricity as the old one!
    Date published: 2016-01-01
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's exactly what I wanted but the large doesn't fit my small warmblood mare - It's too tight around the neck. I read the other's comments so ordered a large for my 15'2" petite mare. Unfortunately I will be returning it and live with the shoulder rubs

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from it's great this product protected the rubs and prevented new ones

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Neck too tight. I bought this in XL. The girth area and shoulder were a good fit for a 17H Irish Sport Horse, but the neck opening was too small and very tight. The neck fit was quite different than a Jammie product. Quality seemed fine and it was a good price. Just didn't fit. The return process was easy!
    Date published: 2015-02-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm! Using the previous reviews' comments on sizing, I purchased one of these for my Standardbred who had two shoulder rubs. It was shipped quickly, easy to put on and fit well. No further rubs which is good because who knows when we can take the blankets off this winter!
    Date published: 2015-02-09
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too small around the neck I originally bought a large size for my made who is 16.2 and wears a 82" blanket. Everything but the hike for the neck for fine. It was way to tight. I then bought an x-large and she still can't wear it. I'm not even sure it was any bigger around the neck than the large size. I kept it with the plan to cut a slit in it but still haven't done it yet to see if that works. Other than the fit it seems to be constructed well. I would only recommend with the caveat that you might have to make some adjustments to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality This is a good product and it fits good. Our halter horses need this for there shoulder hair gets rubbed off sometimes with there sheets on all winter long and blankets on also.
    Date published: 2015-02-02
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Neck opening too small I purchased the large for my petite, narrow-bodied TB mare and the neck opening was so small that I am returning it. It cut into her neck so badly when she put her head down that I didn't feel comfortable leaving it on her. Otherwise, the quality is nice and I liked the fact that it had the piece that went between her front legs. I have other Stretchies brand products that I really like. For shoulder guards, though, I will go back to the Weaterbeeta brand and wait for the large to come back into stock.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Returning item I read other reviews before purchasing but thought I would give this a shot. The quality seemed fine however the neck opening was very tight. I purchase a Large for my 15.3h Morgan, the shoulder and girth fit perfect but the neck opening is a small and tight. Tried this on once and took it right off, did not feel comfortable leaving it on.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from shoulder sleezie This fits fairly well. It's a bit tight and doesn't stretch very well at the neck opening. I will be doing some tailoring as the stitches are already breaking and adding an elastic band.
    Date published: 2014-12-10
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great! My mare is a large built warmblood. I bought this for her to prevent any rubbing on her chest or shoulders. It is a great product and is good quality, my only complaint would be that the neck seemed a bit tight on her even tho I had bought her the biggest size. It did relax a bit after a few uses however.
    Date published: 2014-12-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work well I have only been using this several weeks but it seems to work for alleviating shoulder rubs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Protect your horse! Solves the problem with blanket/sheet rubs! Light weight for the Summer too.
    Date published: 2014-07-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Immediately! The shoulder guard I was using was not working on my gray horse. He continued to have rub marks from his winter blanket and summer sheet. The Stretchies Shoulder Guard worked immediately. My horse no longer has rub marks. This product worked so well that I just purchased a second one so my horse always has a shoulder guard even when one is in the laundary.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from stops the rubs Bought this just 1 month ago and the rubs are already going away. Only issue is that the neck was high on the underside. Very tight when he bent down to eat hay and I bought the XL. I cut the neck opening about 10 inches and it fits fine. Has not torn further. Good product.
    Date published: 2014-03-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! My mare's blanket was rubbing her really bad so I got this and no more rubs!
    Date published: 2014-03-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit overpriced but does the job The first few days I was skeptical because the neck opening was moving around so much that it was damaging the hair there while protecting the shoulders. It seems like it broke in though because the shoulder guard started doing its job without rubbing the neck. I like the reinforcement where the snap goes under the girth. Still, I think it's a bit pricey for what you're getting. We'll see how it holds up in the long term. For this price I would hope to get two winters out of it.
