Since stocking the Horseware Wug Rugs we have had many question from customer about them. Some people have asked what is the point, why not just go for a detachable neck or know neck at all. In this article we are here to answer some of those questions you may be asking yourself.
Horseware Wug Rugs
The Wug rugs are available from Rhino, Rambo and Amigo suitable for both horse and pony. The difference in these rugs are the high deck design. This design is ideal for horse or ponies that are prone to rugs rubbing their wither or get too hot in the field with a rug with a neck. The classic high-cut neck design ensure optimum freedom of movement when grazing in the field whilst ensuring a snug fit. With this high-cut design it relieves pressure that may be put onto the wither due to the cut coming further up the horses neck. So what is the difference between the Rambo & Rhino Wug rug?
Rhino Wug rug
As some of you may know Rhino rugs feature the Barrier Technology. Rhino rugs are one of the most durable turnouts on the market, and makes use of Rhino’s Barrier Technology, with a separate waterproof and breathable layer underneath the tough exterior to eliminate the possibility of leaks if the top layer is damaged. This is the main difference between both the rugs.
Rambo Wug Rug
Unlike the Rhino the Rambo does not feature a barrier technology. However, it does come with a three year warranty on waterproofness and stainless steel hardware.
