I use a weatherbeta with a detachable neck. I think it works, yes. Not only to keep the flies off but to help with the dirt, scrapes, and sun bleaching...

I use them if the horse is going to be showing (keeps them clean and free of bites from horses and bugs haha) or is sensitive to bugs, otherwise I let the horse go without because it just another cost that is not needed, I use my fly sheets the most to protect my blankets in the winter from rips/tears, need the heavy duty fly sheets for that though.

I personally like Kensington, Weatherbeeta (heavy duty not light ones, rip to easy but that's bc my horses are in a pasture setting) or get a custom made one by a local blanket maker.

Or just google local blanket makers in your area and see if anything comes up
Here is a one of the local ones near me to get the idea

Yeah I generally don't use one but seems like my Appaloosa's are very sensitive, also I don't know if I should get one because I am going out of town a few times with my horses this summer and not sure what the bugs are like in these place.
