November 1, 2022 As Autumn drops its temperature and leaves, while the daylight hours grow shorter and hunters take to the woods in search for a big buck, it’s important to think of our riding safety while on trails and roads. In the same way that Horsehoodies LLC has you covered during bug season, we also have you and your horse’s safety in mind after the bugs are gone. Horsehoodies LLC’s high visibility safety gear is perfect for visibility on the roads and trails and can even be used while camping or in the pasture. Take all of these items to the trails to make sure hunters know you are not their target while in the woods. Hunters are incredibly appreciative when riders wear orange in the woods because it helps them to quickly identify you as a horse and rider. On the roadways, our gear will help drivers to know you are there and have plenty of time to slow down to go around you day or night. Choose from bright lime green or hunter orange, both colors have reflective strips to catch any light shown your horse’s way. The leg wrap Safety See’ums serve double duty as a great safety tool while camping with your favorite equine or if you need to find them in their home field. Made with rip stop denier and professional strength velcro, they are made to last. Put these wraps on prior to nighttime and you’ll only have a to shine a flashlight in your horse’s direction to make sure they are safe and secure on your campsite or in their pasture. In case of a loose horse during the night, finding them becomes much easier when they have reflective gear, and they will be visible to drivers if they happen to make it to a roadway. The Safety See’ums are completely adjustable and will even fit around your ankles or wrists when you are running, hiking, biking, etc. without your horse but still need the visibility. The Caution Cape hugs your horse’s neck to make sure your horses front end is highly visible and attaches to halter or bridle to be used in the pasture, on the picket line or while riding. The Safety Shield covers their rear and includes three wide strips of orange or lime green fabric plus reflective strips to make sure you are seen. It attaches to your saddle with elastic and clips and includes 4 weights to keep it in place while you enjoy your ride. Get all three items and take comfort in the fact you are riding safely no matter where or what time of day!

Spring has sprung and warmer temperatures are arriving. Soon, the flowers will be blooming, grass will be greening, trees will be budding, and the bees will be buzzing. And, unfortunately, so will those horrible little biting flies and midges which cause our more sensitive equines to itch horribly and break out with rash. The sensitive skin of the tummy, chest, and girth area has been, up until now, incredibly hard to protect from these tiny, hungry insects. Fly sheets do not cover this area fully and you may have even had to forgo riding during particularly bad seasons because your horse’s girth area has gotten so angry with the allergic response. Horsehoodies LLC has you and your equine covered, quite literally, with Uniguard! Keep riding your horse with no fear in this one-piece bug guard which is designed to have complete coverage of the tummy and chest area while riding, driving or during turn out. Pair it with your fly sheet to cover the areas the sheets do not to keep your horse completely comfortable and bug free while they need it most. The Uniguard is made of 100% Nylon mesh which is trimmed with fleece. The straps are made with strong, fleece covered elastic which keeps Uniguard in place and allow for 10” of adjustment!! We have made Uniguard incredibly soft and adjustable so you can get the perfect fit to keep out the tiniest fly. Uniguard is available in 10 colors, choose from: aqua, black, blue, burgundy, green, neon orange, pink, purple, red, teal, and primary multi-colors. The four sizes available are pony/cobb/arabian, horse/mule/donkey, warmblood, and draft. And, as always, if you think you need a custom size, please ask because we are happy to help any size equine stay bug free!
