Caribu Kersey Wool Horse Hoods
These Caribu Kersey Wool Hoods are a luxurious 425gsm - they can not be beaten for their warmth & durability in the cooler months.
Our Caribu Horse Hoods are constructed from a quality genuine 80% Kersey Wool blend, you will be hard pushed to find a warmer, more versatile stable hood.
Wool is a natural fiber and has fantastic insulation and breathability properties. Featuring enclosed ears, a poll strap*, anti rub lining and fabric reinforcing behind the buckles. Our wool horse hoods also also include binding along the mane line for added strength.
Don't like Enclosed Ears? With this design the ears are attached & bound in such a way that if you prefer to use the hood permanently without ears - they can be cut off down low and the ear hole will still remain bound and prevent fraying.
Wool Hood Features:
• Quality 425gsm Kersey Wool - 80% Genuine Wool Blend
• Internal lining in the mane strip to help alleviate rubbing
• 3 x Neck Buckles
• Enclosed Ears.
• Hood Poll/Throat Strap for added safety.

Note: We have noticed some competitors selling Wool rugs that have as low as 30% wool fiber in them.
Below are our approx hood size measurements:
No1 - is measurement from point of poll rearwards back along the crest of the hood to the rear hem of hood.
No2 - is measurement from point of poll down centre of face to bottom edge of hood.
No3 - is the total of 1 & 2, measured along the top seam of the hood from nose point to rear binding edge
|No 1||No 2||No 3|
* please note the location of point of poll will vary from horse to horse, so you please use an approximation only. No 3 will also vary slightly depending on how tight you pull the fabric
**Horses are unpredictable animals and there is always a risk of a horse dislodging a hood from scratching, snagging or other mischief and then panicking if their vision is effected. When using hoods on horses you need to consider the horses temperament, location to other horses, environment and their overall suitability for wearing hoods. We recommend only using hoods in safe environments where the horse can be regularly supervised at all times. Please read our detailed user guide on using hoods and masks, things you need to consider, as well as information on correct adjustment of poll straps on this link
