AbstractA modular covering system for a horse comprising a base member arranged formed of an elastic material so that it can be worn in tight conformity with the torso of the horse. The material of the base member is of low friction so that when the base member is in place it protects the portion of the horse over which it is disposed from chafing. The base member also comprises releasable securement components to enable various conforming coverings to be releasably secured to the base member. One covering comprises a back cover for covering the back and sides of the horse. Another covering comprises a full body cover made up of a back cover and a forward cover, with the forward cover being coextensive with the base member. Each covering may include releasable connector elements to releasably secure a liner panel thereunder.
