Fly rugs are a summer essential, especially for horses that are more sensitive to flies and insects. They are made from breathable mesh material in light colours to reflect the sun's rays and help to keep your horse cool. Many also feature the added bonus of UV protection. Different styles and designs of fly rug will offer your horse varying levels of protection, so it's a good idea to research the rug which will suit your horse best.
For general protection a fly sheet with combo neck should be suitable, but if your horse is exceptionally sensitive or suffers from sweetitch look for styles with poll protection and belly coverage. Waterproof fly rugs are a brilliant solution to changeable weather conditions for typical British summers!
With a wide range of fly rugs available from your favourite brands including Shires, Weatherbeeta and Horseware, you can be sure to find the best match for your horse.
