I was talked into buying a spray for my horse for mosquitos, it is garlic based. In fact, I think they just pureed garlic and put it in the bottle.
I can't say for sure how well it keeps the skeeters off, but I sure do crave me some pasta when I use it. :(

I LOVE Absorbine UltraShield Green, It is natural and safe for people and horses.
I also like Farnam Bronco Equine Fly spray

I have used Off on my horses mainly on their ears and that kind of thing.

Just dont put it on their face or anywhere they can bite. It could be toxic. however the rule "whats ok for u is ok for your horse" is mostly true. Also try googleing it.

i would not put it anywhere she can reach to ingest it. it would work but it could dry out her skin. i use a simple vinager/water spray and it works like a dream!

every horse deserves to be loved by a little girl
