Fly rugs are ideal in warm weather, to protect your horse from horseflies and other pests.

Fly sheets are designed to protect your horse’s sensitive skin from biting flies. The protective mesh of a fly rug allows air to circulate while protecting its coat and body from bites. The ideal fly rug will keep your horse cool and discourage annoying insects from landing on it. The fewer distractions your horse has while grazing or waiting ringside, the happier it will be. Use a fly sheet indoors, too for added protection from nasty stable flies. Horze even carries a fly rugs with a combination rain sheet, providing both rain and insect protection in a single rug. 

Fly rugs in many variations

In the Horze range you will find fly sheets in countless designs to suit you, your requirements and your horse. Here you can get fly sheets with or without a neck piece, or with a detachable neck piece. We have flyrugs with belly bibs, with cross straps or even simple fly rugs for you. In addition to a choice of understated colours, to keep flies from spotting your horse, at Horze you will also find trendy zebra-look fly blankets, for example from the Bucas-Buzz-Off range. The black and white stripes are said to confuse certain flies, especially horseflies, so that they cannot land on the horse in the first place.

You can ward off the insects not only in the paddock, but also when riding out into the countryside and enjoy the summer even more with the riding fly rugs. Take a look around the extensive range of fly rugs and find the perfect fly rug to protect your four-legged sports partner all summer long.

 

Insects can make life difficult for horses from spring to autumn. This is especially true when grazing in the pasture. A light-weight, finely woven fly rug protects the horse from these pests. Of course, the material must still be strong and tear-resistant.

Recently, fly blankets with a zebra pattern have become available. Tests have shown that insects' eyes are irritated by this pattern. Therefore, insects can no longer land directly on the rug. If the horse is standing in the pasture with the rug, it should have a belly bib because the belly is also a popular target for insects. In addition, the rug should have built-in straps for safety reasons. If your horse is very sensitive or there are a lot of insects in the pasture, you can choose a rug with a neck piece.

The best rug for you and your horse would depend on your horse and the environmental conditions. For example, there are rugs that are treated with the insecticide permethrin. You can even wash them a few times before the effect wears off. However, chemicals for insect control are not for everyone. Also, a well-fitting rug should normally be enough.

Not every horse tolerates a neck piece or ear protection, although these are certainly useful for insect control. You just have to try it out. If you plan on leaving your horse unattended in the pasture or paddock for a longer period of time, you should make sure that the rug fits properly. It should also be made of a breathable material. Ideally, it should also have an antibacterial coating on the inside.

As with all horse rugs, sizing is important to ensure that the rug fits properly, is effective and does not hinder your horse's movement. The most important measurement for determining the size is the length of your horse's back. To determine this, measure from the withers to the base of the tail with a tape measure. This measurement in cm is the rug size. Make sure that you measure exactly along the spine of your horse.

However, horses do not only differ in the length of their back. There are larger and thinner, robustly built and petite horses. Therefore, you should also measure the chest circumference. Measure approximately in the middle of the chest from one side to the other. Often the rugs can be adjusted in size by adjusting the buckles. You can find rugs in all sizes - from mini ponies to Shire horses.
