The Clipped Horse - Ways to Keep Their Coat Healthy

Posted by Lisa Hughes on

It's change of coat and clipping season, where we seem to end up wearing more hair than our horses!

There are many benefits to having a clipped horse but how do you keep the coat of a clipped horse healthy during the rug wearing seasons?

If you've just clipped your horse a shampoo such as the WildWash  

 Gentle Shampoo for Sensitive Skin and Foals  is a good way to soothe and calm the skin as well as eliminating any clipper blade oil residue. This cruelty free horse shampoo "combines  Aloe Vera, Marshmallow Root and Evening Primrose Oil to help soothe and revitalise the skin and coat whilst hydrating and maintaining the balance of moisture" making it an ideal shampoo for hot towelling between clips or after exercise. 

For everyday wear, to avoid those unsightly and possibly sore rug rubs, a good quality and durable rug rub prevention garment is a must. Bossy's Bibs has been specialising in U.K. manufactured rug rub prevention products for over 25 years. The range consists of garments specifically designed to protect the areas most commonly affected by rug rubs, such as the chest, shoulders, withers, hips and mane. 


Bossy's Bibs versatile RugGuard, not only protects the body from rug rubs but usefully protects the top rug from grease build up, therefore reducing the amount and expense of specialist rug washes. The RugGuard can just be put in your household washing machine (family and partners allowing!) and washed on a normal wash cycle. We recommend you wash the RugGuard regularly as this will help keep your horses' coat shiny and their skin healthy.

Bossy's Bibs rug rub prevention garments are made from a quality silky material which allows the top rug to slide over the commonly rubbed areas. As the weave is a tight weave, the hair does not get caught therefore eliminating the possibility of that burned hair look some garments can cause. 

For more information on the Bossy's Bibs product range please go to or call us on +44 (0)1442 824033 we're happy to answer any questions and give advice on sizing. Bossy's Bibs is a family owned and run British manufacturing and retail company.
