I like Ultra Shield X and Super Shield Red, but they're hella expensive. Country Vet works pretty good, too.

I heard that you should switch sprays every so often because the flies get used to it. I think it's true, too, because the Country Vet worked really well for a while and now not so much.

I have used endure for the last 2 summers , I love it and even when the horses get sweaty it still seems to work. It was suggested to me by my fave tack store owner who owns 5 horses .
It is expensive but I try to buy it when I see it on sale, yesterday I bought a bottle at a horse show vendor who had it for 20percent off which cost me roughly 16.00 ....I do love the smell of bronco but it didnt seem to work very well for me.

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

I like Tri-tech and Endure equally well...when I need a good flyspray, those are the ones I look for. They are expensive, but worth it.

Oh, another good one, especially for horses with sensitive skin, is V.I.P. (VIP Products) In my area, it's hard to find (only one store sells it!), but I used it on Dante when he was young and I didn't want to use weird chemicals on him, and I hear a lot of people say they use it on their horses with allergies and sensitive skin. It smells fruity, too! The site says to use it twice a day, but I've got away with spritzing a horse down just once and it worked maybe a day and a half.

That's interesting that you say that because I've heard that before too. One of us should do an experiment!

^^ I do know from personal experience that fleas will become immune to a certain poison after a couple of summers of using the same thing, it makes sense that flies would too.

I decided to buy the Bronco Gold but I havnt used it yet so I can take it back if I decide to change my mind. It worked pretty good on Sammy and the other ones were a bit out of my price range at the time. =/

I use "Horse and Pony Fly Spray" it is water,sweat resistant and uv protectant (helps not fade their coat) it works the best for me, I only have to spray my horses down once a day.I have tryed almost everyone out there and this one is the best by far, cost about $13.00 a bottle but I got the big refill bottle( cost about 40.00) it will last me all summer with all five of my horses.
