human mosquito spray on horses?

The mosquitos are out in force here, and I was wondering about using 'people' mosquito spray on horses. We use Pirahhna for flies but it did nto seem to do much against the mosquitos... is it safe to use Off or something on our boys? Or is there a good horse-friendly spray?

I don't see where there would be a problem. I've heard of people doing it and it working. Just seems like it'd get kinda pricy after awhile maybe. But I dunno, I've never tried it

I use Off. It works WAY better than horse fly spray, and it is WAY cheaper. We have Endure as well, but I always use the Off instead. I've used it for years and never had any problems.

I figured it'd be more expensive. Hah guess not. I think I'll try off as well.

I keep a bottle of Off in my saddle bags for long rides. It keeps just about everything but the B-52 sized horse flies off. It keeps the stuff off that regular fly spray leaves behind. Like mosquitoes and deer flies.

I've done it before. Was hesitant as I wasn't sure of the toxicity level. But never had a problem with it.

Does off really work? I've never tried that but, now I might the mosquitos are little buggers out here and they love me and my horse.

We have crazy amounts of mosquitos in the summer/fall, and often use Off on our horses. The only thing I would advise is rinsing the horse every few days so that huge amounts don't stay in the skin, and to not put it on their faces. Beware though, all of our horses HATE the smell (and who can blame them?) and some of them will half-rear or throw their heads when you begin to spray. So be careful! ^^

I certainly wouldn't blame my horse if he threw a fit. Hehe. I hate the smell too. Yuck! Thanks for the info Endiku :)

The Off I use smells AMAZING. I don't know what type it is, but it seriously almost smells like perfume.
