Which Fly Mask should I choose for my horse?

By Aimee Burge-Maclean

Throughout the summer months, flies and midges can make your horse's life miserable. To protect your horse from nasty bites, selecting the perfect fly mask is essential, and coupling with a fly rug will make your horse’s summer happy & fly free.

There are various things to consider when buying the perfect fly mask for your horse including fabric, style and sizing when it comes to comfort. There are a wide range of fly mask available, all offering varying degrees of protection for your horse.

The question is which one is best for your particular horse as there are just so many available. Here's a short guide to some of our top picks for Horse & Pony Fly Masks  this season!

Standard Fly Masks

For those on a budget, with a horse who is kind to their masks & does not need any special protection the standard fly masks are great. Generally they will all give good allround protection against flies with the mesh barrier. Our top picks this season are the Bucas Buzz Off Fly Mask in Navy or Zebra Print at just £16.99 or the LeMieux Comfort Shield Standard Fly Mask which is newly designed for 2017 at just £18.95. Both styles come with loads of size options & supply great protection to the eyes from biting insects.

Mid-Range Fly Masks

For those looking for a better fit, more coverage & better fabric quality are the mid-range fly maks which supply all the protection of the standard range rugs but have a more tailored fit, better coverage & a better denier of mesh.
