Why a Fly Sheet?

#TackTipTuesday - Fly Sheets
🪰 Fly Sheets can easily make your horse life more comfortable in the summer time but not all horses need one.
Pi has allergies and can get a bit of a skin reaction to bug bites, plus he lives in a wooden area that has the nasty deer flies. Having a fly sheet allows for the physical barrier to help protect him from bites.
I often get asked about fly sheets that don’t get too hot. There is going to be temperatures in the summer, such as 30+, where it will just be too hot for any sheet. Fly sheets are designed to be breathable and light colours to reflect the sun to help keep your horse cool.
If you think your horse might benefit from a fly sheet I am always here to talk tack!
