The Pencil Graphite Honsie Life is a fantastic product for keeping your horse or pony clean and pristine prior to competition. Honsies can also be perfect for keeping the chill off on the cool summer evenings as an light evening cover. Many customers use a Honsie as a second skin underneath a winter rug on those cold, and often snowy days.
Nylon Lycra Benefits
The Pencil Graphite Honsie is made in high quality Italian Nylon Lycra and uses a technical type of Lycra (the Elastic part). Our Honsie contains a small amount of compression qualities within the fabric. The compression helps the product stay in place on your horse when in use. The fabric used is very similar to premium swimwear material. This kind of fabric has many benefits over less expensive Nylon Elastane fabric. The natural characteristics mean that it is resistant to Sweat and Oils.
High quality Nylon Lycra can help protect from UV rays in the sun. Being a swimwear fabric our Nylon Lycra is quick drying. Being a premium fabric means it retains it colour well (and is also Chlorine resistant should you want to take your horse or pony for a dip in the pool !!). The Lycra lasts upto 10 times longer than conventional Lycra and has superior qualities in terms of it’s resistance to break down and product shape retention.
The Honsie product is bound all of the way around the edges to help retain its shape, the eye holes, ears and nose areas are bound too. This helps the product retain it’s shape and preventing slippage, or ovalling of the eye holes. This helps prevent the hood move over the horse or pony’s eyes. The under-tummy band holds the Honsie in place and the leg straps hold the rear in place .
Whilst the Honsie is not water-proof, the qualities of the fabric do prevent mud and pooh passing through which helps keep your horse or pony clean when prepared for competition. The slight compression will help hold plaits in place and the qualities of the compression and will help make the coat shiny.
A Honsie is simple to put on and take off, simply draw the head and neck up like you would a pair of tights onto your hands and with your back to your horse, simply slip the Honsie over its face and head.
