BEST IN TEST WINNER - HORSE MAGAZINE (See it in the July 2014 Issue, Page 109) Super Plus Fly Repellent: BEST IN TEST - 'I found this spray to work well. After applying it, I didn't see any flies on my horse or any bites on her. It is easy to apply, as a mist or a jet, and I like the trigger spray, which has an 'off' setting to avoid wastage.
BEST OF THE TEST WINNER - HORSE MAGAZINE (See it in the July 2013 Issue) Super Plus Fly Repellent: BEST OF THE TEST - 'On first inspection I thought it had fairly plain packaging, but a lovely smell, and I liked that it wasn't sticky. The trigger is excellent - I love that you can apply it as a mist or stream. This makes it easier to spray sparingly over the body and then I use the stream option on a sponge, to wipe the face. 'The first time I put it on my horse was in the field and I literally saw the flies disappear! It would be useful to have instructions on how long an application lasts, though - I use it twice a day when my boy is living out. My horse hasn't shown signs of any fly bites, so I would buy this spray again. It offers good value for money and seems to be effective. I've tried expensive brands in the past and they haven't been as good as this one. The bottle could be a bit more interesting - it doesn't do the product inside justice. This is an excellent fly repellent and good value.'

Contents: A blend of concentrated herbal oils, volatile essential oils and pure avocado oil. Fly repellents can have a drying effect, which is why we include pure and concentrated Avocado Oil, the very best quality skin and coat conditioner for equine use. In the warmer weather the skin tends to become flaky and the hair dry and coarse. High in Vitamins A, D and E it deep conditions hair and nourishes the skin.
Horse Flies: Our formulation is powerful enough to deter the largest of flying insects. Horse flies are hated by both ourselves and horses, because they really hurt when they bite. They have a knife-like mouthpiece that breaks through the skin by slashing it, in order that they can then feed of the blood. The skin is left with raised, sore and very irritating lumps. Our formulations will soothe and help stop the need to rub.
Directions for use : Always shake well. Use as and when required. Can be applied directly to raw and exposed areas and to help stop the need to rub. Apply liberally avoiding eyes and nasal passages.
Broken Skin: When animals constantly rub and loose their hair the skin can become very sore and eventually break open to reveal sore areas where bacteria can thrive.
Raw & Sore Areas : No need to worry about application to exposed and sore areas, the formulation is kind and gentle enough to apply directly to areas which have been rubbed raw. It stops the urge to rub almost instantly and gets to work and soothing affected areas.
Midge Bite (Sweet Itch): Sweet Itch is caused by an allergic reaction to the saliva of the biting midge. This causes intense irritation in the mane, neck area, top of the tail, chest and belly. Usually more prevalent between April and October in moist, wooded areas. Some animals are more prone to the effects of midge bites than others and it normally stays with them for life, so it is very important to use a good repellent that keeps the midge at bay and soothes and calms the effects of midge bites, ensuring that your horse or pony is kept a comfortable as possible.
Sensitivety: Barrier Animal Healthcare appreciates that some horses and ponies have thin sensitive skins. Many such horses suffer allergic reactions to natural or synthetic products and for this reason, if you think that your horse or pony may react to products we advise you to carry out a small patch test before use.
Safety Data: 100% Natural and No Nasty Chemicals. We appreciate that horses and ponies may have sensitive skins and so suffer severe allergic reactions to certain natural ingredients. For this reason, Barrier Animal Healthcare DOES NOT include citronella or vinegar in any of their formulations.
Which Fly Repellent to Choose?: Lindsay Opie, Cornwall, emailed, I'm Confused! I've always used and like Super Plus Fly Repellent with coat conditioner, but see that you also manufacture Enhanced Formula Fly Repellent and I don't know which one to buy. Is the latter exactly the same, but with extras?
