Epic Classic Sweet Itch Rug - Broad Fit
Created using durable, light weight polyester, the Epic Classic Sweet Itch Rug is great for keeping biting insects at bay whilst keeping them cool and protecting against sun bleaching.
Epic horse rugs are designed with much more room in the chest and shoulders, eliminating the feeling of being restricted; allowing for comfortable grazing with full freedom of movement. No more mini-skirts with a deeper body and ample room for the lovely apple bottom.
- Durable, breathable polyester
- Attached neck extending over the ears, with an added extension to eliminate gapping between the rug and the hood
- Breathable polyester lining at the chest & shoulders, over the mane, back and tail flap
- Belly flap with 3 adjustable surcingles
- Twin Epic chest buckles with trigger clips for additional adjustment
- Detachable leg straps
- Available sizes 5'9 - 7'6 Broad Fit
Created from our Original Epic Broad Fit Pattern:
- Extra large shoulder gussets for full freedom of movement
- Large neck to accommodate the largest chest & shoulders enabling comfortable grazing
- Extra rug depth ensuring no more miniskirts & extra large tail flaps for complete coverage
- Darted at hind quarters to fit the big apple bottom
All Epic horse rugs are carefully hand packed in a complimentary, reusable zip-fastened storage bag for easy carrying and to keep your tack room tidy when not in use.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HORSE FOR A RUG
With a fabric tape measure or twine, measure from the middle of the chest where the rug would fasten, around the curves of the shoulder, following the body in a straight line to the furthest point of the hind quarters - but not all the way to the tail. We recommend measuring in cm for the most accuracy and to be sure you have got the correct measurement, it is a good idea to measure 2-3 times. This measurement can be used as a guide for your rug size, if you are still unsure please call 01254 279666 for further help.
Epic® rugs are now available in our original heavy horse Broad Fit, for heavy weight horses & ponies, and a Regular Fit, for light-medium weight horses & ponies.

Fantastic rug !
Finally found a quality sweetitch rug that fits my Irish cobs broad chest and shoulders.
The belly flap also stays in place !
LOVE THIS RUG 💕💕
Love this rug so much, my Shire x WB lives in this during the summer and his cheeky field mate hasn’t pulled holes in this yet ! We are in year two of this rug. Lots of adjustment, easy to wash it’s a well made rug I love the Epic rugs as they fit him. Would like more lining over the shoulders but that’s being fussy sizeing is generous but I kept it as my boy is still growing and this year it still fits.
Good broad fit for my shire with the rug but the hood is a little bit tight and when he bends down the Velcro comes undone. Plenty of cover on the tail. Fabric is very robust (usually fly rugs don’t last us very long at all and get ripped to bits) and not too warm for him. Only downside is that it isn’t waterproof and in the British weather it needs to be. Flies are worse when it is damp and humid. Don’t want to cover him up with another sheet on top as he will be too hot so end up taking the rug off altogether if it is going to rain.
Great fit across chest, lightweight and good long body and tail coverage, very pleased with purchase.
I purchased this rug for my itchy chunky pony who had destroyed most of the fencing around his paddock. The rug is a great fit for chunky cob ponies although, as he is welsh and has a finer face than Irish types, the fit around his cheek is a bit loose so his ears sometimes disappear under the neck cover which is quite funny to see! Really good coverage around his tail and belly and ample room in the neck and chest to allow him to graze without restriction. The fabric is better than I expected for the price and although we haven’t had any warm weather yet, I don’t think he is going to get too hot in it and the fabric is robust enough to withstand rips. Really good value for money sweetitch rug which is a great fit for deep broad chests and big bellies and bottoms 😊
