Fly Sheet

I have been trying to fit a fly sheet to my quarter horse, but I cannot seem to find one that I like one her (fitting wise :)) Does anyone have a fly sheet that they like on their quarter horse or know of any brands that would be good for quarter horse build. Here is a picture for you to see how she is built:

Thanks :)

I know one brand (Rambo I think...) makes special QH blankets. I'd just google QH fly sheets. NO! It's Weatherbeta, because they are the AQHA sponser! Go check them out. I can offer a word of advice on fly sheets, get a stiff one. They stay more away from the body, and don't let the horse get as sweaty. ;)

I agree with the recommendation of the Weatherbeeta flysheets, I have one for my QH built TB and hope to get one for my big QH too. Also used them for my big stocky pony. I actually very much like the softer material as it is much comfier than those rougher ones and less likely to rub, but of course they are also easier to rip. My pony was out in the pasture and got kicked and bit up a lot and it would get torn, but I would just bring it home from time to time and sew it up and it worked out pretty well. It's held up really well on my stalled horse.
Never had any issues with any more sweat with these than with the rough blankets even in 120+ degree summers..
