A fly sheet provides a horse with a comforting barrier of protection against flies and other nuisance insects. While all fly sheets for horses are made of open weave mesh for breathability in hot, buggy conditions, some feature treated materials that also shield the horse's hair and skin from coat-fading UV rays. Additionally, some brands are made of mesh impregnated with an insect repellent to boost the sheet's ability to keep insects off the horse. Use of a fly sheet can make a horse's time in turnout more enjoyable, and most importantly, it can help reduce stress, panic or pacing in horses that are especially sensitive to insects. In some cases, a fly sheet may help prevent disease or skin conditions caused by insects. Dover Saddlery carries a selection of sheets in sizes to fit horses and ponies and from all the leading manufacturers.
A fly sheet prevents flies from landing directly on your horse. Depending on the model you choose, it can also provide:

- Built-in repellent that keeps all types of insects away.
- Sun protection factor that helps prevent coat fading.
- Reduction of allergic responses caused by contact with insects, typically hives.
