Fly Masks - Choices for use in the field and for riding
During Spring and Summer, flies become a serious irritation to our horses. Whether out riding, around the yard or in the field, there seems to be no escape from these troublesome flying pests.
Here at Discount Equestrian we have a wide range of options for providing relief for your horse, from full face fly masks which incorporate protection from the sun through to fly veils for use while competing or riding, we offer a selection of the leading brands such as Bucas, John Whitaker, LeMieux and Veredus.
Designed for comfort, fly masks are ideal for wearing when turned out during the summer months when flies are at their worst, with options for coverage of the ears to help prevent midges attacking the sensitive skin and risk of aural plaques, they are styled to prevent rubbing for long term use. The vulnerable eye area is protected by a fine mesh which prevents the fly from landing on the eyes and allows for enough clearance to prevent rubs, avoid restricted movement and provide full vision. Our full face versions are ideal for horses and ponies with sensitive or white muzzles which are prone to sunburn, the flap covering the muzzle offers enhanced UV protection, perfect to complement a fly rug from our extensive range for full body fly protection. Our attractive fly veils are ideal to add a touch of colour to your showjumping gear while protecting your horse’s ears from flies, midges and even helping with noise levels. Perfect for use in competition or during schooling and hacking, fly veils fit snuggly over the ears and under the browband to prevent flapping and limit distraction. At Discount Equestrian we offer a full range of summer essentials for horse owners including fly sprays and repellents and fly rugs and sheets – if you can’t find what you are looking for please do not hesitate to contact us and we would be delighted to help.
