Rugs to protect your horse from flies in the summer

Does your horse struggle with flies in the summer? Check out these rugs from Weatherbeeta to keep your horse happy and free from insects all summer long. 

The arrival of summer is often a welcome one, but if you're the owner of a horse with sensitive skin, it can be a different story. 

Horses with skin sensitivity can become easily bothered by flies, leading to them being exhausted having to constantly defend themselves from buzzing insects. 

You don't want to keep your horse in all summer, so let him enjoy the warmer season with a fly rug from Weatherbeeta. 

The spring/summer range from Weatherbeeta features the revolutionary technology of ComFiTec in lightweight fly rug options, designed to protect your horse from insects, with the added benefit that they shield your horse against harmful UV rays.

The range is designed for comfort, fit and durability. The entire mesh range has traditional side gussets for natural movement, meaning your horse can lie down and sleep in the sun, or kick up his heels with his turnout friends. 

The collection includes the ComFiTec 600D/Mesh, ComFiTec Airflow and ComFiTec Essential Mesh rugs.
