Horze Fly Mask

I have to say that over the years that Horze has been available I have come to really like and trust the brand. Although they are repeatable the cheapest on the market they don’t skimp on the details, often going the little extra mile on design and fit, which I have found again when I got Fitty’s new fly mask.

Fitty is prone to itch, so I was drawn to the fact that it comes with the ears built in and doesn’t just sit behind the ear but has extra material which would allow it to meet where his rug ends. It is a lovely fit and sits nicely around his check bones. It has 2 straps of double Velcro which holds it securely in place and has meant that he hasn’t yet turfed it in the paddock - as he likes to do!

Fitty is yet to ditch the mask, so big thumbs up!

Fitty is yet to ditch the mask, so big thumbs up!

It comes with a few extra bonuses:

  • UV protection

  • Weather resistance

  • Opening at the pole for horses that have a lush forelock (not a problem I have with fitty unfortunately)

The downside:

Fitty has come up with a bit of a rub mark on his nose where the bottom of it sits. I am playing with how tight I do it up to see if that is the cause.

Once again I am stoked with my Horze product for the price (not going to complain when he destroys it and it has to be replaced), fit and quality and Fitty is keeping the flies out of his eyes because he can’t get this one off!!

Dark Selections Customise Your Own Mattes Saddle Pad

After spending hours creating numerous coordinating saddle pads, I just had to share the link for this product.

With potentially hundreds of options, this saddle pad will stand out in a crowd!

With potentially hundreds of options, this saddle pad will stand out in a crowd!

The Mattes Saddle Pad is 100% customisable to colour, trim, additions like fur trim or saddle fixing, and you may, like me, find yourself spending hours creating your own perfect colour branding for your horse.

What’s to like?

  • Complete customisation, even to the logo

  • 44 colours to mix and match

  • Correction system option allows you to correct irregularities in your horses build or adjust the fit for a green horses rapidly changing form

  • A saddle fix option that not only helps prevent slippage but also lifts the pad off the spine, allowing for complete freedom in movement

What’s not to like?

Beside the hours you will spend creating the perfect colour combination, the price quickly adds up with each advancement. But hey - some people spend over $150 on shoes with a beer brand on them - at least the saddle pad won’t get you laughed out of the arena.
