Riding your horse with a fly mask?
Hi, around where I am the bugs get nasty to the point of it nearly being impossible to stand outside without any protection, even without a net over my head I can't stand to stay out their too long.
I try to do everything to ensure that my horse is protected from them as well, because I can see how easily agitated he is by them. I spray him down and put a fly bonnet over his ears, but lately I've been seeing people riding with fly bonnets on their horses.
Is this safe? At first I was like, Wow what a great idea! But my mom chimed in with her mom-like concerns and says "Well I would think that the mesh would obstruct his vision quite a bit" Is this true?
How do you guys feel about riding with fly masks?
