I've seen it help with a horse who was very sensitive to midge bites. There is concern about garlic causing anemia but there is no hard evidence suggesting it shouldn't be fed at all, just that care needs to be taken to make sure it isn't overfed. The horse I knew was on it seasonally for this very reason - started on it right before fly season, and taken off of it at the end of it. If you're in a location where flies are a year long issue, I'm not sure I'd recommend it. I've never heard of every horse in the barn needing to be on it for it to work, didn't seem to be an issue in the case I know of.
Brewer's yeast is another one that is said to help.
