Purchase: I bought the Amigo Fly Rider from The Cheshire Horse for $65. I had seen it advertised on-line and wanted to see it in person to be able to touch it. I found the Amigo Fly Rider at The Cheshire Horse on a trip searching for something else. I immediately fell in love with it. I had to have one.
Likes: I pretty much like everything about the Amigo Fly Rider. The quality, the fit, the color, and the feel of the fabric are all exceptional. I also like the fact that it doesn't make my horse look ridiculous -- at least I don't think it does. In addition, I like that it appears to do the job. I went out for a trail ride today and was very happy with the fact that the deer flies were not able to harass my horse by landing on his poll. I was also pleasantly surprised when I got back and removed the Amigo Fly Rider to find that it did not cause my horse to sweat any more than would be expected on a somewhat hot day.
Dislikes: There is nothing that I don't like about the Amigo Fly Rider.
Quality: The Amigo Fly Rider is constructed of two parts, a sort of quarter sheet and a neck piece that attach together via nylon/velcro straps and metal holders. The top of the neck piece attaches to the bride. The quality of the fabric and attachments is typical of Horsewear products, exceptional.
Summary: I am very satisfied with this product. I look forward to many hours of deer fly free trail riding because of it. Now, if only Horsewear would make a similar product for me to wear I'd be all set.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
