Comfy Collars combine the functions of a neck collar and a breast collar to distribute the weight of the load across the neck and shoulders of the animal. The work of pulling is done both with the hind end, pushing thru the neck and shoulders, and the forehand pushing up thru the shoulders. Comfy collars are flexible and lightweight for comfort as well as being cut to allow room for ease of shoulder movement. These collars allow your animal to move naturally. Comfy Collars for VerySmallEquines feature extra soft padding with 1″ trace buckles.
The design of the collar cap allows for adjustability of about 1.25″ in Mini or Small Pony sizes. Stocked in sizes 12-15 made for minis and ponies with either black or brown leather padding or black or brown carefree padding. Please allow a bit more time for other sizes. Because the upper part of the collar is not stuffed it conforms to the shape of your animal’s neck securely and comfortably.
Not recommended for use without a martingale. Also available with pair D’s. Measure for this comfy collar just as you would for a standard neck collar. Upgrade to pair dees is sold as an UPGRADE product
How to Measure for a Collar:
- Use a collar measuring tool or make your own tool using two carpenter’s squares (L shaped rulers) or L shaped cardboard cutouts. Overlap the long sides of the two rulers or cutouts forming what looks like a letter C or one vertical side of a collar.
- Place measuring tool on the animal as if it were one vertical side of the collar. Place it just where you want the collar to sit on the animal at the wither and below the airway. Grip the tool so it won’t slip as you remove it. Be sure the two parts do not slip; then measure from the top to the bottom on the inside. That will be your collar size..
