A fly rug can be a relief for horses suffering from summer eczema or an insect plague. It is important that they are made of breathable, heat-repellent fabric. Therefore we have amazing brands such as Bucas, Eskadron, BR, Kentucky, Harry's Horse and QHP in our shop!
The blankets are available with and without a collar. Zalda also has blankets with nice prints like the Bucas Buzz Off in zebra print. Not only because zebra print is super fashionable, but also because flies get confused by the zebra stripes and stay away from the horse.
It is important that you buy the right size blanket. This ensures that the blanket is comfortable for your horse and does not rub or pinch! Below are instructions on how to measure your horse and choose the right blanket size.
Bucas recommends the following:
Measure your horse from (A) the center of the chest over the shoulder to the farthest part of the buttock (B). Once you have measured your horse, choose the size that is closest to the size of the horse (A-B)
