Summer is both my favorite and least favorite time of the year as a horse owner. My favorite for the sun, warmth, and longer hours! And my least favorite for the dreaded flies. BUT! You're in luck, Riding Warehouse has some affordable options for keeping your horse comfortable this summer (and for years after that!).
I recently started using Bronco Gold fly spray, and I have no idea how I (or Getta) lived without it! In sixty seconds or less, the flies are virtually nowhere to be seen. Plus, it's a coat conditioner!
The Professional's Choice Rip Stop fly sheet is one of the highest quality sheets I've owned. It's a strong, durable material that's easy to clean. The number one problem I've had with fly sheets in the past is that the hair sticks to them... but this one doesn't! Definitely worth the investment.
When I was in college, I bought a set of Rip-Stop Fly Boots to help keep the flies off her legs. My one complaint with this set is how warm they can get in the heat (which wasn't an issue when I was in college on the California coastline). However, I will definitely opt for a different pair of fly boots to keep her from stomping all summer long.
When I bought my fly sheet, I also go a fly mask. My sentiments about the durability and quality of this mask mimic the fly sheet. Just can't go wrong!
