Designed to protect against flies and other biting insects, fly rugs or fly sheets as they are also known, are made from a fine mesh material, making them light, cool and breathable - ideal for use over the summer months. Fly sheets come in various different styles, offering differing levels of protection, from standard cut rugs offering a basic level of protection, through to fly rugs with neck covers, belly wraps and extended tail flaps to give enhanced protection against those summer pests. Many fly rugs also offer some degree of UV protection, which is not only helpful in protecting light skinned horse from the suns rays, but also prevents bleaching of the coat of dark horses, which can be essential for the show ring. Some fly rugs also feature a waterproof top panel to protect against summer showers.
Fly sheets are usually paired with fly masks or fly veils to offer additional protection from flies around the eyes. We also stock a wide range of Fly Repellents & Fly Sprays for Horses to offer an extra deterrent from flies and biting insects, which is useful for both when the horse is in the field and for when out riding.
