Bug Armor Repost

As you can see, it's kind of a scrim sheet for riding. It's made of a very fine mesh designed in two pieces. The face mask is an additional piece by the same manufacturer. There is a belly protector piece too which I have but I haven't quite figured out how to put it on.

Sometimes the flies do get under the mesh but the biG B52's never did last year. And when they buzzed around Tucker, he was completely unfazed by them.

So it really does work.

  1. OMG It is really an armor LOL!

    Never seen a horse in one here. but our flies are not so mean PLUS we spray them a LOT!

    I like the bridle net very handy while hacking next river or in the wood.

  2. crikey! that kit means business, then!

  3. So the horses know that they are protected? Interesting.
