Just like human skin, horses need protection from the sun if they are out in it for extended periods of time. Fly rugs are designed to help protect your horse against flies and biting insects as well as the sun’s harmful UV rays. They can prevent the coat bleaching as well as sunburn of pink skin area’s.
Fly rugs and sweet itch rugs are very similar to each other. A mild case of sweet itch can be helped using a fly rug however for more severe cases a sweet itch rug is recommended. The main difference is that a sweet itch rug has a much more close knit fabric to stop small insects and midges getting to the horse causing them to itch. Prevention is far better than trying to treat a horse once they have started rubbing. A sweet-itch rug will also cover the base of the ears and right up the neck. They are best used with a fly mask that has ear pieces attached to offer the best protection.
Yes you can leave a fly rug overnight however we do not recommend doing so. The main reason for this is due to the finer fabrics used for fly rugs could tear if your horse could rubs in the stable.
To protect your horse from flies when riding chose a riding fly rug such as the Amigo Fly RIder.
