Caribu's 'Zebra' Euro-Breeze 270gsm Fly Air Mesh Attached Hood Combo Horse Rug.

This custom made air mesh offer superior UV and insect protection, but still allows plenty of breeze to pass through the fabric and across your horse, keeping the horse cool, on those hot summer days.

Zebra patterned mesh has become very popular in the northern hemisphere in recent seasons. Research suggests that some insects dislike the contrasting zebra stripes, the variation in reflection confuses insects and they choose to avoid the fabric. We are keen to hear from our customers to see if you find a practical difference or not.

With this popular design, the hood is permanently attached directly to the horse rug. The convenience of a Combo, but with the extra protection of a hood*, enclosed ears and a hood poll strap - all in one. Our hood poll strap is an added safety feature to reduce the risk of the hood moving. We do allow extra length in the necks so that the horse can graze freely when their head is down.

Featuring Removable ears - 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.

With a generous drop, tent tail flap and belly surcingles this horse rug has been made with the Australian climate and horses in mind.

Many find that the Euro-Mesh is a very good alternative to Flag rugs, offering many of the same benefits - but with a much more durable fabric that performs like a traditional mesh or ripstop horse rug from a strength perspective. Euro-mesh is our mid-weight air mesh, if you have a horse that is hard on rugs you may want to consider or heavy 410gsm Enduro mesh rugs.

Our Zebra Euro-Breeze 270gsm Attached Hood Combo Standard Horse Rug Features:

• Made from 270GSM soft polyester mesh fabric
• Not recommended for itchy horses - see our 410gsm range.
• UV stabilized rating of 85%+ percent protection
• Generous Full Cover Tent tail flap - mare friendly
• Belly Surcingles
• Gussets at shoulders for freedom of movement
• Reinforced dual chest straps with stainless buckles for extra security
• Rump darts, for a snug fit
• Adjustable/removable leg straps
• Fleece padding to protect the wither
• Internal lining in the chest to help alleviate rubbing

Caribu EuroMesh 270gsm Hood Features:

• Internal lining in the in the mane strip to help alleviate rubbing
• 3 x Strong Neck Straps for extra strength and easy removal
• Enclosed Ears- the ears are attached & bound in such a way, that if you prefer to use the hood without ears - they can be removed
• Hood Poll Strap for added safety
• Extra length in the neck to allow full range of movement

*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

Rug Options (Must attach your self).
• Mesh Tail bags are available as an option, more info on tail bags here
• Mesh Eye Covers are available as a self attach option -more info here
• Mesh Nose Flaps are available as a self attach option -more info here

Caribu offers 4 different Air Mesh fabrics - which one do I need?

It can be confusing with so many choices! The best rug for your horse on a hot day - is no rug at all. When its 30c+ and/or humid, your horse will sweat under any rug. Sweating is how a horse maintains its body temperature as heat increases. Mesh works best when there is a breeze to allow airflow over and through the horse rug. As a horse owner, its always going to be a compromise between keeping your horse cool, and provide sun and/or insect protection.

    My most recent purchase arrived promptly (as always) the Zebra striped fly rug. You asked for feedback - so here is what I have noticed. Even though his eyes are not covered, the flies are not attacking his eyes or his nose. Sometimes there will be some on his legs. I have tried so many different methods too protect him over the years, as he has very little mane, no forelock and a very short sparse tail!.He loves it, I love it, he is now happy. so i'm now happy!! Thanks Caribu

    very pretty, I'm in love with the colours
  • Reviewer: Sue Sharpe
    We bought our black buckskin gelding one of these Zebra patterned mesh rugs in a neck combo in August 2016 & it definitely has made a difference to the number of insects hanging around him & our 2 mares when they are within a 5 metre radius of him - very pleased with this rug & will definitely be buying Danny another one when this one wears out !!
    When only the best will do, it's Caribu !!
