I really like Pyrahnna for trails(not sure if I spelled that correctly).

Some people have issues with it but it works the best on my mare.

However, like Joe, I usually try to outrun flies. LOL.

I like Ultrashield, it is the only one that I have found to have any effect. I keep a small travel size spray bottle of it in my saddle bags to reapply after sweating/sponging if the flies are extra bad. I have also used it to spray legs after getting into a nest of "turkey mites" (baby ticks).

we also use the black ultrashield when we can't find endure and works pretty good but i have to reapply more frequently.

Pyrahnna, Bronco, Dumor, none of them will fight the flies we have down here. I use the Dumor spiked with Deet. It helps. I also ride with a face mask with ears. Horseflies, stableflies, deerflies, and gnats. And then you have to remember the ticks. And the spiders in your path.

Oh, and I almost forgot. The hornets that follow you along the trail trying to pick flies off of your horse. That makes for a real calm horse.........

Dang. I just realized that I'm not looking forward to middle Georgia in the summer.

Bronco is like water here in the South, but I have had good luck with Pyrahna. I didn't like Endure. I also like to use OFF on the ears.

I use OFF also especially when ticks get bad in late summer

Had to move my ride to next weekend cause the place we were going is still to muddy, and just to clear stuff up its not an endurance ride, but a trail ride for my birthday. I bought the Endure yesterday, and wow. 22 dollars?! Ouch.
