Flies can be a terrible nuisance to both horse and rider. But they are not the sole culprits. Other troublesome insects include Blackflies (that favor the ears, and can also target other areas), Horseflies (ambush your horse anywhere on the body), Mosquitoes (favor hot, humid and swampy locations), Houseflies (target your horse's eyes) and Sandflies (tend to swarm around your horse's neck, mane and tail).
The Natural Way
There is a lot that can be done naturally to discourage flies and bugs. Clean your horse's eyes regularly and use a face mask whenever possible. If your horse is not a show horse, do not clip your horse's ears. Hair will provide a light barrier as opposed to virtually hairless clipped ears. You can also use ear nets - your horse will likely appreciate the barrier, but if ears must be left exposed you can also apply natural topical creams to your horse's ears.

How has EQuine Fly Repellant helped others?
“... this is so handy to use, and I always dilute and give a spritz to all my hoses. It is also great on my hat, to keep them from bothering me too!”
- Marsha Knight
“I have tried this and I am so pleased – I use it especially on my horse (Daisy Duke) on the tail area. She doesn’t swish nearly as much, and seems much, MUCH happier. I never leave the paddock without it!”
“…Flies have always been an absolute nuisance to my three horses. I was very reluctant to use harsh chemicals, and so I was delighted to see this natural product. It has been a great addition...”
What are the Ingredients?
EQuine Fly Repellant contains the following 100% pure essential oils especially selected to support skin health and the natural healing ability of the body:
Tagetes minuata (Khaki Bos) - this plant indigenous to South Africa, contains pungent oils that help to dissuade fleas & ticks, acting as a natural insect repellant! The indigenous people of Africa have long known the repellant properties of this ingredient, and used it for many years.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) - lavender is cultivated around the world and the fragrant oils of its flowers are used in aromatherapy, baked goods, candles, cosmetics, jellies, massage oils, powders, shampoo, soaps, and tea. Lavender is comprised of over 100 constituents, including camphor, tannins, triterpenes, and flavonoids.
Citronella - Citronella oil is one of the essential oils obtained from the leaves and stems of different species of Cymbopogon. The oil is used extensively as a source of perfumery chemicals such as citronellal, citronellol and geraniol. These natural chemicals find extensive use in soap, perfumery, cosmetic and flavouring industries throughout the world.
Our products are not tested on animals and individual ingredients are well-researched and are natural, safe and effective. This product contains absolutely no parabens, sodium laurel sulphate or harmful petrochemicals.
How do I use EQuine Fly Repellant?
Add 5 drops to 500ml water in a spray bottle and shake well before use. Spray all over coat avoiding the eye area, with special attention to the tail. May be repeated up to three times daily.
Safety during pregnancy and nursing has not been established. For external use only. Keep this and all essential oils out of reach of children. May also be used on dogs, but NEVER ON CATS.
How long until I see results?
Response times vary from horse to horse, based on their physiological make up and other circumstances, such as age, diet and exercise levels. While some horses show an immediate improvement that increases over time, others will see results after 3 - 5 applications.
How long will a bottle last?
One 12 ml bottle of EQuine Fly Repellant will last around 3-4 weeks, depending on the frequency of use.

Provide your horse with a box fan in his stable - this will help to discourage tiny pests (might also help with hot summer months)
If your pasture or property contains a small pond or pool of water, try to keep your horse as far away from that water as possible as stale water is a mosquito heaven.
If your fields get partially flooded with water during spring or after serious rainfall, try to find ways to drain the water out of the area.
Never allow water troughs to become old and stagnant. Make sure your horse receives fresh water daily.
Practice good hygiene by removing manure from stables and paddocks regularly – this will cut down on flies.
