Treatment Description

This Wild Horse Australia product utilises Insect Shield® Patented technology process to tightly bond Permethrin to the fabric.

  1. 3 rugs in 3 years 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jan 2017

    I absolutely love what these rugs do for my itchy mare, we are in a high tick and mozzie area and for the 3weeks this year over Christmas while I was waiting for my order to arrive, my poor girl had welts and scabs all over her (while I was treating with permoxin every 2nd day). I only wish these rugs lasted longer. The quality is great but after one summer she starts scratching again and tears the rug up, that when I know it's time for a new one. I wouldn't be so worried although the price is quite high for a new rug every year. Wondering if there is a way to retreat the rugs with the insecticide?

  2. Better than the simple mesh 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jan 2016

    A couple of years ago i bought the mesh rug hood and ears and the next year i had to have it repaired with ripstop along the back and tail. This new mesh + ripstop is great, hopefully they won't tear it up too soon. The fit is excellent. The only suggestion would be to put a couple of velcro patches along the neck (between the buckles) to make it even more pest proof.

  3. Great quality heavy cotton 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Nov 2015

    Love these rugs. This is my 3rd wild horse rug. Only drawback is the cotton is such good quality it can be too hot on days above 32 degrees. Would like to see a little more of the mesh in this combo.

  4. Well designed. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2015

    This rug is very well designed for comfort and safety to the horse. A good quality rug worth the extra dollars.

  5. Almost perfect 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2015

    Perfect fit for my horse - 6'6 for a 15'3hh stockhorse/paint. Unfortunately the hood does not cover beneath the jaw (between the mandibles), leaving this area still exposed to insects. I am not sure if this is due to her head shape or if this is the design of the hood. However, the remainder of her body has seen a reduction in bites and a more comfortable happy horse.
