Crusader Flymask w/ Ears
Fly Control



Manufacturer: Cashel Company
Model: Crusader Flymask w/ Ears
Category: Fly Control

Purchase: Calabasas Saddlery, Calabasas, CA $26.50 I was tired of fly masks literally tearing beyond repair and falling apart. I saw a Crusader on another horse. From a distance, I could see the workmanship was so much different than most fly masks and it's true!

Likes: FINALLY--a mask that stays on the horse's head. HOORAY! Doesn't fall shreds! Darts in mesh keep fabric away and off the eyes. The ears haven't torn yet. I own one w/and one w/o ears and they have both lasted more than a year without needing replacement. The different fabric panels allow for a more contoured fit. The masks don't shift {so the ear isn't sticking out of the opening for the forelock!} Neutral gray and black color scheme coordinates with the latest shades in fly sheets. Machine washable, holds up well in the dryer too.

Dislikes: There could be better reinforced stitching on the velcro strap where it attaches to the mask itself. I have had to mend this on more than one occasion where it has come partially loose. I would like to see more of the loop velcro fabric where the strap attaches to allow for a fit that is more snug.

Quality: The mask is made of different fabric panels: mesh over the eye area, fabric panels on forehead and cheeks, piping on edges and around ear holes, nylon over ears. A large velcro strap secures the mask under the throat latch. Available with and without ears, with or without an extended mesh nose panel. All sizes available, from foal to Draft, also Mule/Donkey ears available. This mask holds up to extremely vigorous wear.

Summary: Don't waste your money on any other fly mask!
