    She is rugged and masked in the paddock but what about when I'm riding?

    You can spray her down before you get on her/him. I would buy a fly bonnet, and there are sheets made for riding.

    Hope this helps!

    Get masses of fly repellent on and don't forget to keep reapplying it as the horse gets hot and it starts to wear off.

    Im having the same problem at the moment aswell!! Its sooo frustrating. I feed garlic and I've wiped apple cider vinegar(The only vinegar I had) all over him and the flys still keep coming! I have used ripcord(insect killer) but it doesnt stop flys from landing. What is the vaseline method?

    I have a gelding the same way. Since we compete all summer into the evening when the bugs come out, it is a challenge. He wears a fly sheet during the day and is in at night. I can't think of the fly spray that works on him. Spendy and he is the only horse we use that particular brand on.

    I am considering this:
