Shoof Equine is proud to be the New Zealand distributor of Bucas’ innovative range of horse rugs.
Bucas’ long reputation for technically-advanced horse rugs is built on a foundation of almost 40 years of experience in other industries, countries and markets. For this reason, the Bucas brand has become synonymous with technical rugs and recognised worldwide as supplying rug collections to ensure your horse is suitably dressed no matter the weather.
From the brand’s conception in 1981, Bucas has set the standard for technical horse rugs from the first high performance, water resistant turnout rug through to their modern and truly lightweight and breathable designs suitable for higher temperatures.
The brand is responsible for perfecting the ‘stay-dry’ principle of using wicking linings that transport sweat and moisture away from the horse while the inside of the lining remains dry and keeps the horse warm. Similarly, the brand also developed the first of its kind sun/heat reflective rug with an aluminium lining, heat retentive layers and an antibacterial lining. This was soon followed by revolutionary full body fly and UV protection rugs and the unique, Buzz-Off Zebra fly rug.
More recently Bucas has extended its innovation into therapy rugs with its Recuptex Therapy Rug designed to enhance the horse’s own natural system and to help promote the relaxation and healing of the muscular system through improved blood circulation.
