The Red Sky Half Body Under Rug is a fantastic product for helping to keep your horse clean prior to competition. A Half Body is also great for keeping the chill off on the cool summer evenings. A Half Body can be used as a second skin underneath a winter rug on those cold, and often snowy days. The Half Body can also be used to help prevent rug rubbing, and used in conjunction with a Show Hood
The Benefits of High Quality Nylon Lycra
The Half Body is made in high quality Italian Nylon Lycra and uses a technical type of Lycra. The technical Lycra is more durable and longer lasting than conventional Lycra (the elastic part). Our products contain a small amount of compression qualities within the fabric. The compression helps the product stay in place on your horse when in use.
Premium Swimwear Fabric
The fabric used is very similar to premium swimwear material and has many benefits over less expensive Nylon Elastane fabric. The natural characteristics mean that it is resistant to Sweat and Oils, helps protect from UV rays in the sun. Premium quality Nylon Lycra is also quick drying and retains it colour well. Technical Lycra lasts upto 10 times longer than standard Lycra and has superior qualities in terms of it’s resistance to break down and shape retention. As Nylon Lycra is a ‘fluid’ product it allows other products to sit on top of it without resistance, this helps prevent rug rubbing.
The Red Sky Half Body product is bound all of the way around the edges to help retain its shape and also help prevent slippage. The under-tummy band holds the Half Body in place and the leg straps hold the rear in place .
Whilst the Half Body 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.
