Biting insects can be a real problem if your horse has a reaction, from unsightly lumps and bumps to sweet-itch and sometimes fly repellents just aren't enough which is why many owners chose to use fly rugs or fly sheets as protection. Made from lightweight materials such as fine mesh to allow for excellent airflow to prevent overheating in the summer sun there are a variety of designs which incorporate colour patterns which confuse flies, repellent, even those with integrated waterproof panels to help deal with summer showers. These rugs offer excellent extended coverage making them also useful in providing UV protection for fair-skinned horses susceptible to sunburn or irritation.

If midges are the problem we also stock a number of sweet-itch rugs designed to help block even the smallest insects with special designs to help break the itch-scratch cycle we also stock a number of anti-itching products which can also aid in skin management.
