WILD Horse Australia uses a unique patented process that tightly bonds the fabric fibres with Permethrin – one of the most effective natural insect Controls. This ensures a long-lasting, odourless and colourless barrier against many common insects, using this process is more costly but the results for long term effectiveness is far better than spray on applications used in other treated rugs.Learn how it works
This is my horse after being in a paddock with 50 head of cattle with ticks. We could not spray him with tick spray as he was very sensitive and did not like any sprays. We brought a WILD Horse Ripstop rug with attached hood which we had heard great things about and decided to give it a go. Within three weeks there were no more ticks, the hair had started to grow back and my boy was much happier and healthier in your rugs.
I would like to say thank you for saving my boy.
We refer all our clients to Wild Horse Australia when being called out to a horse that is being plagued by insects or has ‘QLD Itch’.I use the Insect Control rugs on all my own horses and when I got my Quarter-horse mare, she had no mane or tail and her skin was very elephant-like. The previous owners had used everything under the sun to no avail but once she was covered with her Wild Horse Rug with attached hood, the change was like a miracle and her hair has now grown back and she is a very happy horse!
My horse has always been one of those itchy horses – he would scratch himself senseless even removing skin.
Just over 5 years ago my horse developed chronic non-healing eye ulcers which turned out to be related to his allergies resulting in the need for eye surgery. I have struggled every spring/summer to manage eyes (and coat), desperately trying to keep the flies, mosquitoes and midges off him. This year I tried a ‘Wild Horse Australia’ fly mask and I was amazed. Within minutes there were literally no flies on him. Within days his puffy weepy eyes settled down – even the Veterinarian was impressed. I have since purchased a mesh combo and I’m equally impressed. I can’t recommend Wild Horse Australia Products more highly – for both the comfort of your horse and for your piece of mind.
I can honestly say that over the many years that I have been struggling to keep my itchy horses comfortable and looking great I think that I have tried every lotion, cream, shampoo, insect repellent and rug on the market!
I have been desperate many times and have even resorted to selling my itchy horses to the colder Southern climates just to make the lives of my lovely horses happier.Initially I was a little skeptical about purchasing the 5 new rugs that I needed to protect our itchy horses, but now one year after I spent the money, I realise they are the best investment that I have ever made to assist in the on going battle to protect our itchy horses from the insect bites that can, if left un-treated, result in such hideous irritation, pain, frustration and weight loss.
Thank you very much to the entire team at Wild Horse Australia.
I have used these veils for two seasons on my destructive horses and they are still going strong. I would have gone through 3 or 4 other brands of veils in that timeframe. The horses have great vision through them and they also stay on better than others. The 3 darts keep them away from the horses’ eyes better as well, although it is more important to fit them correctly due to the stiffness of the mesh. I recommend them to everyone who asks.
