    A high quality product with great fit and great features... For your fresh off the track Thoroughbred. If your horse is anything other than a lean machine, be sure to order a set of the belly band extenders. Schneider's was nice enough to send me a set without charging shipping when I found this sheet fit my draft cross mare beautifully everywhere but around the middle. With the belly straps fully extended I could just barely get them connected. And she looked like a bit of a harlot in a skin tight dress.

    • Too hot, sweaty horse

    Best Uses

    • 24/7 Turnout

    Comments about Schneiders Dura-Mesh Fitted V-Free® Bellyband Fly Sheet:

    This sheet does the job. My mare is very itchy & has ruined a ridiculous number of sheets already this year, she hasn't put a hole in this one yet. The only downfall is it keeps her a bit warmer during the hot summer days than I would like. I wish it came in smaller sizes, the 68 is a bit big but hoping we grow into is, I know it'll last!

    Nice fitting, good quality

    By Kristin

    from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Durable
    • Good Fit
    • Stays in Place

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • 24/7 Turnout
      • Everyday Wear

      Comments about Schneiders Dura-Mesh Fitted V-Free® Bellyband Fly Sheet:

      I was very happy with the way this product fit my horse. The belly band helps keep the blanket perfectly in place for a horse that is turned out in a herd nearly 24/7. The only complaint I have is that the blanket did run out the top of my horses tail as wel as a bit on his shoulder blades. This was NOT a result of a poor fitting blanket as the blanket fits very well, it just has a few rub spots.

        Comments about Schneiders Dura-Mesh Fitted V-Free® Bellyband Fly Sheet:

        It fits well, stays in place and doesn't tear. The pasture bully has bitten my horse several times and he has "dented" the flysheet but not broken through it. Good looking flysheet.

            A:

            No this is not waterproof. The water would just go through the fly sheet material.
