Saratoga Horseworks
Fly Sheet
Fly Control



Manufacturer: Saratoga Horseworks
Model: Fly Sheet
Category: Fly Control

Purchase: I purchased this product from Dover Saddlery in 2001 to provide fly/insect protection for a horse used in a therapeutic riding program. I paid about $60.

Likes: The horses in our therapy program are cared for by special needs children. The Saratoga fly sheet fabric is light weight, and it is easy for the children to put on and take off the horse. The best part is the chest and surcingle buckles that easily snap into place and can be opened by just squeezing the buckle release. Great for anyone, but especially children who have difficulty completing tasks.

Dislikes: The color white is perfect for summer and the sheet washes and dries great, but because horses love to roll in dirt, mud and grass the sheet eventually loses its crisp white look.

Quality: The sheet has been used for two summers, is still in great condition and ready for another season. We have a wet, swampy area in the woods behind the barn and all kinds of insects emerge from this spot. Besides fitting the horse beautifully, the soft, mesh fabric provides the ultimate protection from these pests. The elastic leg straps work great to keep the sheet in place. I feel the quality of this product is every bit as good as some of the more expensive sheets on the market.

Summary: If you want a sheet that is cool and light weight with buckles that are quick and easy to use then this is the sheet for you. The quality is excellent and I see that they now have added an invisible shoulder gusset for more freedom of movement. I'd love to find myself a jacket with the qualities of this sheet!
