The new standard for protection and comfort, the UltraSheild fly mask design keeps horses cool and comfortable using high-tech fabrics originally developed for human performance clothing.
It’s designed to stay put with two-way stretch fabric on the crown and jowl, extended fabric behind the ears, and a strong double-locking hook and loop closure featuring wider velcro. It’s also designed to protect, with structured eye darts and a mesh that blocks 80% of UV rays. Plus, rolled inner seams prevent rubs and irritation.
Made from a sport knit that’s commonly used in football jerseys, this fabric is lightweight and breathable, and offers protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
Crown & Jowl:
Fashioned from a diamond knit used in running apparel, this soft fabric wicks away moisture and features two-way controlled stretch for a comfort fit.
Face & Nose:
Made from a highly durable woven mesh, this material blocks 80% of harmful UV rays, reduces heat transfer and solar glare, and allows air to pass through.
Used behind the ears to provide additional protection, the double-locking closure is angled to keep the mask in place.
All masks are available with and without ears:
Cob Size: for cob, large pony, and small horse
Horse size: for average horse and small warmblood – available with removable nose
Warmblood: for warmblood, small draft and draft cross
