I need to get a new anti rub bib for my cob as her old one
has fallen apart. I can't believe how many different
sorts there are on the market now! Which is the best for
a pony who will be living out all winter?
Also I am not sure what size she will need, she is 14.1 1/2 hh
but is a very heavyweight cob with a broad chest, takes a
6'3" rug and has a neck like a tree trunk (only

Bossy bibs are absolutely brilliant, they will even put a
zip down the front if you need it. I think they have a
web site but the address defeats me. I do know that when
you ring to order they take all sorts of measurements and seem
to remember that they will size them to your horse rather than
you trying to size your horse to the bib, (hope that makes

We have tried several, but prefer Bossy's as they as so thin
and silky- for a pony living out they won't get so wet as to
get heavy. Also no straps or fastenings to come undone or get
caught up when turned out.,
You could have two- they rinse through and dry overnight
indoors, - so she always has a clean dry one under her rug.
We had to measure 'collar' size and found one off the peg
fitted - albeit a 17 H version for a 15HH cob- but as the
length doesn't matter, it was fine.

is one online shop, but I would measure and phone them for circumference
of neck size.

I use neoprene ones which are ok, nothing special though. I
think the most important thing is to remember that prevention
is better then cure! Put the bib on before they get rubbed not
after! I made this mistake and the hair didn't grow back til
spring, even though I then put the bib on!

I am using a Masta one and it is really good! Really
thin and soft. There were lots of different sizes as
I got one that fits my 14.3 perfectly and it was only £9.

Would only use bossy's now after trying so many these are
the only ones with a really good fit.

Hiya! I've got a Polly Products one & love it! Only one
problem is that when using with a wug/wug plus it cannot
fasten onto breast strap so slides round!

Best is to buy Lansdown stable rugs, and
I have a horse with sensitive skin, and he's never needed
an anti-rub ANYTHING under his rugs!.
