The Vivant Equi PVC coated fillet string has a clip at each end so is quick and easy to put on and take off any rug fitted with D rings to attach to.

The soft PVC is easy to wipe clean if needed

Sizes – the measurements are from clip end to clip end:

  • S - 43 cm - best suited to ponies
  • M - 52 cm - best suited to hacks

These are made by me so measurement may vary very slightly.

Plastic Clip

Light weight. Virtually no risk of damage to the cover if the horse gets the fillet string caught for any reason. The cord will pull out of the clip or the clip will break. Very easily fixed. Cord is easily reattached the clip. You can do this yourself. Clip can easily be replaced by you. Replacement clips available. Email me for fixing instructions if required.

Better suited to stable/show/travel rugs. 

Metal Clip

More robust. Potential to rip the D ring on the cover if the fillet string gets caught for any reason. The same way a back strap getting caught might. Unlikely to break but not as easily fixed if it does get broken. Can be sent back for repair. Costs will apply.

Better suited to paddock rugs. 

Will using a fillet string cause my cover to slip?
No, not if the cover sits properly in the first place. If you are using back straps to hold your cover in place and to stop it from slipping to one side, the design of the cover might not be right for your horse or your horse might be just of a shape that regardless of the cover design, they slip.
