Durable and good quality

Very pleased with purchase. This is just as good as the more expensive brands. Highly recommend!

Lori Thompson
Paris Tack Lycra Stretch Horse Shoulder Guard

Purchased this shoulder guard for my mini horse to help protect his mane where it rubs on the fence when the grass is greener on the other side... it fits well and is providing the protection desired. Very pleased with overall quality, it is holding up great without snagging or tearing.

Morgan McGrath
Size Runs Small

The overall quality of the product is very nice, but the sizes definitely run small. Bought this in a large (1100-1400lbs) for my 16.3 saddlebred who runs about 1250lbs thinking that the stretch could accommodate his high withers and sloping shoulders. Unfortunately I could not even get the guard buckled when let out all the way without it being as tight as a girth. I would suggest anyone to go up a size to be safe, particularly with a high withered or exceptionally muscled horse.

The large wasn't large enough

Tentatively ordered for my 17hh gelding, it was definitely too small. Fits much better for my 15 hh mare. Good quality and does the job. But if your horse is 16 hands or over, probably best to find an XL.
