A highly recommended all-natural repellent for flies is Farnam Nature's Defense. This product combines botanicals with citronella to create an effective blending of essential oils. We carry maximum strength sprays that combat over 70 different species of insects (biting, bot, barn and stable flies, gnats, deer ticks, culex mosquitoes that are carriers of the West Vile Virus, and many more). Some sprays may contain conditioning agents derived from essential oils which help to combat dryness, enhance your horse's coat, and promote shine.

If you're in the market for a water-based fly spray for horses, Equestrian Collections has several that fit the bill. A water-based formula can offer up to thirty days of protection, and won't attract either grime or dust. This type of formula repels and kills gnats, mosquitoes, flies, and deer ticks that could carry Lyme Disease. We also carry an aqueous fly spray that doesn't leave an oily residue, can be used indoors as a fog or spray, and can be directly applied to both cattle and horses.
