Fabrics & materials
The fly rug is made from a dense structured mesh fabric, which keeps most bugs off. The mesh is extremely strong and will be an ideal field companion for many summers. The fabric is flat on the inside, this has a soft feeling and makes sure that no hairs will stick to the rug. Thanks to the light color of the rug, it will reflect the sunrays and does not absorb heat. The fine mesh still allows air permeability. The mane, chest and tail area are lined with a smooth polyester to avoid rubbing.
Shape & size
The Mesh Fly Rug is anatomically shaped to stay in the right position, even after rolling. The front of the rug is closed by a strong hook and loop and a special triangle closure. This triangle closure allows you to adjust the rug more precisely for a better fit. To protect the belly area the rug features a belly flap. This flap is closed by a hook and loop and 3 straight surcingles. Because the belly cover is close to the horse’s belly, you avoid that insects fly in from the sides. The tail flap is a little bit longer than usual and features an elastic for the tail. Thanks to the elastic, the tail stays close to the rug and offers more protection. The detachable neckpiece is reinforced with a thicker and stronger webbing, so it does not slide down the neck. Because this reinforcement is on both sides of the neck, it doesn’t put pressure directly on the manes.
The Mesh Fly Rug is machine washable at 30 degrees, let air dry afterward.
