The standard fly rug with detachable neck cover is made from a soft, tough and close weave mesh. We have used this type of mesh now for several years and it is the best we have found. The detachable neck is looser fitting than our combo fly rug and therefore would be an ideal choice for horses/ponies that are of heavier build.
The rug is deep fitting with a very generous tail flap and fillet string is fitted. Along the mane line and at the chest there is soft nylon lining to help prevent rubbing. The rug has a belly band which is permanently attached on one side and adjustable on the near side with 3 adjustable straps. The detachable neck cover is elasticated at the poll to help keep in place and attaches to the rug with 3 webbing straps through 3 D rings on the rug and has a head collar loop if required. There are double adjustable neck fastenings.
At the chest there are double adjustable chest straps with D rings and quick release clips. Once the straps are adjusted to the size of the horse or pony fastening and unfastening becomes a quick and easy job as only have to attach the two clips to the appropriate D ring. For ease of movement there are generous shoulder gussets.
The rug is machine washable and is packed in a zipped bag with handles which is ideal for storing the rug when not in use.

- Strong but soft mesh
- Detachable neck cover
