Fly Sheets

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 damaging, 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.

Fly sheets for horses are constructed in cuts and fits similar to turnout sheets and blankets, which are intended to allow horses to move freely without restriction. Shoulder gussets, stretch panels or specialized shaping can all reduce constriction of the horse’s shoulders. A fly sheet can have a standard neck opening, one with attachments to secure a matching, detachable neck cover or even have a permanently attached neck cover for maximum insect coverage at all times. Many fly sheets coordinate with fly masks and fly boots, sold separately. Fly masks keep insects out of a horse’s eyes; styles with extended noses or mesh fabric ear coverings offer the maximum coverage for the horse’s head. Fly boots, sometimes called fly wraps, are made of mesh and are typically bound in soft fleece. Placed on all four of the horse’s lower legs, these can help reduce stomping and pacing, which can be detrimental to a horse’s joints or loosen horseshoes.
