Monkey Bananas Fleece Cooler
Available in 5 beautiful patterns, with a standard neck or with a handy detachable neck, our fleece cooler rug is a multi-functional must-have. Its sweat-wicking, anti-pilling properties make it perfect to cool your horse down safely and gradually after exercise, whilst the comfy feel and standout look means it's also the ideal show fleece....have you noticed they match our travel boots?!
The shoulders and neck (if bought with neck) are lined with a silky fabric to avoid rubbing, and the twin surcingles, fillet string and twin adjustable buckle front closer make it easy to whip on and off.
Neck Styles: Available as 'Standard' (no neck cover) or 'Full Neck' (detachable neck cover included). The detachable neck cover allows use across a wider variety of situations and conditions and is attached to the main body with 3 sturdy metal clips for ease of use.
Sizing: True to size but they come up more on the snug side compared with our turnouts, so if in doubt, choose a size up.
International purchases: Please note that if you are purchasing from outside of the UK, you may be charged an import tax. This is the customer's responsibility to pay.
1. How do I measure my horse for a rug?
In the UK, we measure our rugs in feet, and measure the Body Length - from the centre of the horse's chest, round their side and go right up to where the rug should end, at the farthest back point of the hind quarters or parallel with the tail. It is especially important with turnout rugs that the rugs come sufficiently far back, so as to keep the whole horse dry and clean.
6. What are the turnout rugs, travel boots and bum bags made of?
They're made of high quality 1200D ripstop outer shell with a polyester lining. The fabric has been printed and waterproofed for Ponyo and has undergone rigorous standardised industry testing for waterproofing and breathability. We've also sourced durable clips and fastenings to match the quality of the fabric.
7. What's the size range?
We are currently offering all sizes between 3'0 and 6'9. We hope to offer even dinkier and even larger sizes in later shipments, if there is a demand.
8. Do Ponyo rugs rub?
We've designed the rugs to reduce rub as much as possible. They have high neck / chest lines to avoid the rugs slipping back and pulling. The lining is also a silky fabric which will reduce rubbing on the mane and other sensitive areas. However, as it is the owner's responsibility to try the rug on and ensure it fits well before regular use commences.
9. I live outside of the UK, can I order?
Yes! We offer shipping worldwide so everyone can have a dreamy Ponyo rug in their horse's wardrobe.
10. I ordered my rug in a pre-order, when will I receive it?
Estimated delivery times for each shipment will be stated on the product pre-order pages. However, with restock shipments it is very difficult to pinpoint an exact delivery date as there are many things outside of our control which can affect the arrival times (customs clearance and so on). Ponyo can't be held responsible for any uncontrollable delays in the shipments but we will always aim to keep you up to date if there are any delays we are aware of. As soon as we've received the restock, the order will be sent out on the chosen delivery method the customer paid for upon checkout.
11. What happens if I order both in-stock items and pre-order items, or pre-order items with different arrival timelines, at the same time in one cart?
The default is for us to hold the in-stock item or earliest arriving item, until the final pre-order item has arrived and then send the complete order together on the delivery service you chose at checkout. If you would prefer your in-stock item or earliest arriving items to be sent ASAP and for the pre-order item to follow separately after it arrives, please just let us know and we’d be happy to arrange this. This will incur a second delivery fee as there will be two separate deliveries.
