RIPSTOP FABRIC IS OUR MOST DURABLE OF OUR FABRICS
This Wild Horse Australia product utilises Insect Shield® Patented technology process to tightly bond Permethrin to the fabric. These products help to provide optimum protection all year round, from Permethrin sensitive, disease carrying insects. They are approved by the EPA & the World Health Organisation to last through 25 detergent washed or six months full time weathering. The protection is odourless so it will not affect your horses sensitive sense of smell. It is Insect protection that remains in your horse rug, not in your horse. Insects can bite through around or under standard fabrics. This product offers long term Insect Protection.

Best fitting rugs I have ever brought. 2 out of 3 of my horses get the itch brought this rug and no more itch. Excellent thank you

I used these covers last year and just bought another one for my new thoroughbred. My horses all get a skin condition locally known as the Waikanae Itch (NZ) and these covers gave my wee herd relief last year. Instead of being driven crazy by itchy skin to the point of rubbing themselves raw, they were relaxed and itch free last summer. It is wonderful to finally have a solution to our problem.

Very happy and I'm sure my horse is too if he could talk... No more bugs biting him. I would also like to mention the fit - absolute spot on perfect... Every rug I've ever had for my horse has ALWAYS slipped to one side but not this one :)
Even the neck piece doesn't slide over his ears. So glad my friend told me about these rugs and I will be bragging to the rest of my friends just how great they really are!

Wildhorse Rugs fit very well, are a nice medium weight for all year round in the tropics with the added bonus of keeping ticks and insects away.It's been great for one particular mare prone to Qld itch. Her tail & mane are now growing back. This mare has an insect-proof wardrobe. One of my favourite things about these rugs are that they have the same name as our club & we'd LOVE to have trophy rugs for our winners in years to come!

I haven't had the rugs long enough to comment on their durability--what I'd like to say is that they are a great design and fit both my very differently built horses well. No slipping back and pulling on the chest, very little sliding to either side, and the necks are long enough to keep the horses' necks protected but not made for giraffes (as I have had in the past with other brands). They seem cool on hot days and my touchy gelding has stopped stomping and biting at his chest. So far, I am very impressed. Please make more fly masks, though, as I want to buy three of those!

I received my combo today.
Good fit, good quality , good buckles, went out to spy on my gelding at dusk, he was just standing there no kicking, no swishing, he has had huge allergic reactions to midgies and also allergic to fly repellent ,so happy

Ths is the second of these rugs I have bought. Fit is perfect and is in proportion (most rugs in 7' have the length but not the drop). My horse was chewing holes in his chest because insects were annoying him - this behaviour stopped immediately when his Wild Horse insect repellent rug went on!

My horse is so happy since I bought his Wild Horse rug and I am happy too.

This rug is a very good fit and doesn't move around at all. So far, no rubbing.
The insect protection seems to work - I've only had it on the horse for a week.
The service and communication from Wild Horse was excellent and the post was super fast! Thank you!

I would like to thank Wild Horse Australia for the invention of the insect repellent rug range. I have a 15.3h warmblood mare who has always had a bad reaction to mosquitos. I had tried EVERYTHING and resided to the fact I would never be able to compete her as she had hardly any hair left on her face and front legs. She would tear a summer rug to bits every 10-12 weeks from scratching on anything from trees, fencing or the side of her stable. I was hesitant on spending that sort of money on a summer rug because she does wreck them but she has had her rug and full fly mask for 3 weeks and I can confirm her hair on her face is growing back, there are no lumps on her neck and she is so much happier. I have since also bought the leg protectors and 2/3 of the lumps on her front legs have gone and the hair is growing back. I can't believe it has worked this quickly. Thank you so much!!
