Fly Masks

A fly mask is a mask used on horses to protect the face from flies and other insects.

Depending on the style of the fly mask, it might cover just the face, or also the ears and/or nose. For many owners fly masks have become a staple for use on their horses during the fly season. Below are fly masks for horses for sale on Amazon and eBay. There is usually an excellent selection of types and styles.

Fly masks are usually made of mesh that allows the horse to see through it. If the ears are covered, the horse can also hear as well. Some fly masks also provide protection from the UV rays of the sun. Please scroll down for a few good things to know before buying a horse fly mask. You might also like horse fly sheets.
