        I was unable to use this item as it did not fit around my horse's belly. She's a big girl but she's not really fat So , if you have a warmblood type horse, this may not be the one for you. I do have friends that have this fly sheet and they love it.

            Unfortunately have to return this Fly Sheet. My mare wears a 76" in 3 other fly sheets I own but this one in a 76" is too tight. Will be returning. Hope the return goes smoothly as I kept it protected and clean while trying it on my mare. I would like to try this in a 78" and see how it works for us.

                Per comments I'd read I bought a size larger than usual for my horse, but the belly band is still too tight - I had to add string to make it fit ? Other wise it seems the right size, but he is not fat or especially thick, so I don't know why it doesn't have more room.

                    I would...but I would not recommend this sheet. It will not hold up to turn out very well. Best sheets I have found are Kensingtons. They WILL NOT rip...they may snag here and there but will not rip and can be used even with snags in them. You can hose a
                    horse down in them and use them over a blanket to keep it clean and from gettting ripped. They are the only turnout sheet I would buy. Hopes this helps.

                    A:

                    This is our coolest of the fly sheets. It has a window screen type material that allows air to flow through effortlessly. In high heat/humidity areas, horses sweat easily with or without a fly sheet but this does let air pass through easily while keeping the smallest pests from adding further biting.

                    The only thing I can tell you is I had the sheet on my horse once and it was falling over to one side and got
                    snags in it in one day. I am selling it at a second hand shop. Not very sturdy for turnout. I imagine any leg
                    protection would be the same way...

                    This provides up to 60% UV protection and will be lighter and cooler. If you desire more UV protection, the Dura-Mesh Original Fly Sheet or item #13883 provides up to 70% UV protection. For maximum UV protection our Interlock Mesh Surcingle Fly Sheet or item #34981 offer up to 80% UV protection, but will be a bit warmer.

                    The open front features adjustable buckles with snaps for more adjust-ability and two pieces of fabric on the chest actually open so you can slide it off your horse. The closed front is sewn closed and can only be taken on and off by sliding it over the head.
