Savvy Shopper Guide for Fly Leg Wraps
As a horse owner or rider, you know what an irritation flies and other insects can be to a horse. Unfortunately, horse's legs are a great attraction and gathering point for hordes of flies, causing them great irritation and making them kick and stomp all day long. Fly sprays have been around for a while, but most times they are no match for a veritable army of flies - a physical barrier is needed between the flies and the horses. Fly leg wraps - also called horse fly boots - are available to provide this physical barrier. Fly boots for horses are specially made to both protect your horse's legs from flies and at the same time provide adequate ventilation.
Types of Fly Leg Wraps
Horse fly boots are constructed of a loose mesh or net type of material that is secured to the legs with Velcro straps. Some brands of fly boots for horses offer Stay Up technology which is useful for keeping the boots in place whenever the horse stomps or kicks. Equestrian Collections is proud to offer several colors and designs of fly leg boots and wraps from brands such as Centaur, Rambo, Amigo, WeatherBeeta, Kensington, and Tuffrider. We also carry fly masks and fly sheets to match our fly leg wraps, which will make sure that you and your horse are prepared for the upcoming fly season.

Equestrian Collections is offering the original insecticide-free, all-natural mesh leg wraps, designed to protect and cover a horse's legs from flies and other biting insects. These reasonably priced wraps help to minimize stamping and stomping and are a favorite of veterinarians for use as medical bandages. These fly wraps allow air to circulate over healing cuts, wounds, and surgical incisions approximately 10 times faster than traditional cloth bandages. These patented original wraps employ elastic straps to keep them in place.
Horse Fly Boots
Fly boots are available in an assortment of natural colors that can blend in with the color of a horse's coat. Some Kensington boots have an exclusive plastic stay system located underneath the trim that helps to keep the boots in place and upright on the leg, even during intense stomping. Some Amigo fly boots for horses are constructed with a fleece binding, airmesh body, secure closures, and stiffeners in the boots to keep them upright and provide a contoured fit. Other fly boots available are made of silky soft mesh and have hook and loop closures.

Fly Leg Wraps Care Instructions
Wraps should be cleaned frequently since they are apt to pick up mud and burrs which can be an irritant against a horse's leg. Most of these products are machine washable. Make certain to use only detergents that don't contain fabric softeners or bleach. Don't tumble dry, air dry only.
