WILD Horse Australia, 16 years of helping horses with thousands of happy customers…no mess no fuss just the best technology available in a Rug. Here are just a few of our happy customers:

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 peace of mind.” – Dr Georgina Learmonth – BSc PhD 

“These are great fly veils. Highly recommended.”- Jenny Scott

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.” – Robyn Gillies Tabrett 

“They really are the best fly veils out there for pink faces” – Tam Thompson

“Wild Horse rugs. Oh my God my luck usually goes that I find some whizz-bang product that costs a bomb and It’s crap. Not this time! My girl will pig root and bolt around like maniac when she’s rugged. But this one is a game changer. The elastic on the leg straps and Lycra at the wither means she’s not feeling restricted. Actually noticed NO MOZZIES. I’ll get peppered and she can be next to me without any on her! Hundred percent does not look like this anymore she’s had it on for 3 days and rolled in the mud. But she’s happy. It hasn’t budged in 3 days even after a million rolls it’s sitting perfectly without me needing to adjust it.”- Loren Murray – Equine Nutrition Consultant

“Best fly veils I have used. Love them.” – Kelly Lefever

“My Gelding was going through a new rug every week. I bought him the wild horse mesh combo (not hooded) and he has had it for almost a year so far. Well worth the money and I will be getting him another one for spring this year”- Stacey T Mccoll

“best veils I’ve used” – Kerry Narvo

“I love my Wildhorse fly bonnets so roomy over the eyes – my horses always drop their heads for me to put the ie bonnets on. Thank you Wild Horse.” – Janine Robinson

“These are the bomb!” – Kristen Fleet

Wild horse. Super happy with the fly veil I bought for my paint. They offer a higher UV protection than a lot of other brands and the customer service is great.”- Codie Wrigley

“Best on the market.” – Anne Wilson

“The Wild Horse brand outranks pretty much eveyrthing else IMO. I have ones that are years old and they still hold their shape. All their styles are good and work well as their design around the eyes makes it very unlikely to collapse. I wouldn’t buy any other brand these days.”- Sarah Macka

“The best rug I have purchased by far. quality and effectiveness 10 out of 10..” – Mon Buso

“I’ve just switched my two itchy ones into wild horse masks and they’ve made a really significant difference compared to any other I’ve tried. They fit nicely too, and the mini who was constantly taking her mask off hasn’t taken it off at all. Also whatever it is that’s in them that repels insects really seems to work. The mini had destroyed the thin strip of neck between the mask and the combo rug, and since changing to this she has stopped scratching there as well, so I can only presume less bugs are attacking the undercover strip of neck”- Sam Sherrington

“These are the toughest and most efficient fly veils I’ve used✔️” – Sari Atwell

“My vet convinced me to try this mask for my two young QH’s who are notorious mask removers and I was yet to find a mask that they couldn’t get off each other… I am now 4 days in and they have not been able to remove the masks once. The darts keep the mesh well away from the eyes. I’m really loving the super-secure fly veil so far.”- Karly Eldridge- equine nutrition consultant

“All Wild Horse Australia products are fantastic love them all.” – Ingrid Bayly

I always feel for horses in paddocks being bombarded by flies, mossies and midges. More than most places in the world, Australian conditions make summers tough for our horses. I am for anything I can do to protect them and keep them comfortable in the battle against biting insects. Wild Horse rugs, fly veils and fly masks are a safe and effective way of keeping your horse protected. They are a great idea for any horse.

“Best rug to prevent itch!” – Amanda Kitchen

“Just got my rug today, and boots. One very sensitive mare to most fly mozzie repellants. Big thumbs up? so far so good. Will invest in a couple more for sure” – Karen Morris

“Love their fly veils” – Sue Fairhead

“These are awesome, I have the one with the nose piece that my horse wears day & night when the insects are really bad. He’s gotten so used to it. I also use the one in this pick when we go riding over his bridle.” – Moana Young

“My boy got his rug today. Had it on 5 mins and thought he would get it dirty to match our other boy in his wild horse rug. ? Only ordered this week and got the rugs. Love these rugs as they are a great fit in the hood. We have a Percheron x clydie and Belgian draft/ Percheron x tb and they have big heads and these hoods are a great fit for them ?” – Amanda McMahon

“Quite simply the only brand worth buying when it comes to fly veils!” – Catherine Yeldham

“I’m really happy with the insect control fly masks I purchased recently- the ones with the visor, nose and ears. They fit super well and I’m confident that the level of uv and insect protection I’m giving my horses is the best I can provide for them. Highly recommended ✔️”- Leisa Doggett

“They really are great” – Amanda C Findlater

“These are the toughest and most efficient fly veils I’ve used✔️” – Sari Atwell

“Best rug to prevent itch!” – Amanda Kitchen

“I purchased a competition mare a few years ago from Western Queensland and within a year she started to itch quite badly to the extent she rubbed all the hair from the top of her tail and had raw bloody patches along her topline. I tried everything I could find from oral supplements, sprays and injections from the vet. She would destroy every rug we put on her with her scratching on whatever she could find. Nothing worked and I quite literally was pulling my hair out along with her! I think through google I stumbled across the wild horse rug website and I ordered one. Straight away she stopped itching. It was unbelievable. I am beyond grateful for what this product has done for us. Thank you Wild Horse Australia”. – Emma Hanrahan

“Because they are the BEST!!!!! All horses where I keep my horse are all wearing them now.” – Amanda Knight

“I like the mesh on these. My older ones are starting to collapse but they are a few years old and get worn 24/7 in summer” – Jack’s Run

“Amazing products, my go to flyveil. It stays on even after the storm ⛈️, then rolling in the mud once the sun comes out ☀️, and playing with the horse ball . Tough and durable, with perfect protection ?.” – Jennifer Holland

“Lovvveee mine ??” – Alison Weir

“Great fly masks, I love mine ?” – Karen Barrett

“Fantastic product. On advice from an incredible equine eye specialist, ALL horses in Qld should wear a UV visor/mask every day outside. Eye cancers are very prevalent with Aussie strong sun.” – Denise McLeay

“Super rugs and great fit too” – Lizzie Wilson-fellows

“Best fly masks for appaloosas with white skin and great shades for their eyes.” – Jo Fowler

“They are amazing! I purchased 8 last year – V1 the new 3-dart design and have purchased another 5 today! All happy matching horses. So so good! Thank you ” – Sarah Sullivan

“Love my wild horse rug! My horse now has a mane which we havent had in years.” – Leah Speakman

“I’ve used a different uv mask, shipped from the USA for many years, that has been ok but with it being shade cloth, her nose still needs sunblock. The latest time I replaced it, the new one rubbed so I was looking for something new. I put this on her and was a little worried as there was no throat latch. But it hasn’t moved, or rubbed, and it gives amazing coverage – even underneath her chin is well covered. She ate grass with the mask immediately and is very happy to wear it – she complains about equipment if something is rubbing her. These are great, another great item from you! – Anna Vanderbom















“Such good fly veils! I love them” – Charline Remy

“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 sceptical 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 ongoing battle to protect our itchy horses from the insect bites that can, if left untreated, result in such hideous irritation, pain, frustration and weight loss.
Thank you very much to the entire team at Wild Horse Australia.” – Zelie Bullen – Professional Animal Trainer

“The best fly veils hands down” – Kelly Lefever

“Never use anything else for my appaloosa, welshie and donkey.” – Vivienne Evangelista

“Wild horse is the only brand I use now, quality is top notch and they’re designed so well. They can also take a beating that other brands I’ve tried haven’t even come close to. My mini lives in one 24/7 due to a dodgy eye. Doesn’t collapse, it’s great, she rarely rubs it off, doesn’t rub her skin and the eye clearance is amazing. I have three on rotation for her. I’m happy to spend the extra money for the extra quality they offer”-Jessica Lemmon 

“The only fly mask my guy hasn’t managed to get out of ? great quality ?’” – Lenara Rose

“I purchased 3 of the Wild Horse fly veils in 2015. Quite impressed with them as they had lasted a year when the “incident” happened. The horses go into their separate yards to have their token hard feed in the afternoon. My gelding has always been a horse who puts his feet on/in anything, this night I think he must have put his feet onto the bottom railing of his yard messing about my old gelding. I came out to let them out about an hour later, noticed the rail broken and went to investigate. Apart from a bit of bark of his leg and belly didn’t see any other damage. Did notice a bit of blood on his nose, so I took his fly veil off and went “Gosh!” or words to that effect. There wasn’t a mark on his fly veil. Five stitches later he is all good and the Vet agreed with me that this Fly Veil saved my horse’s eye. As for the fly veils, it is now 2018 and the same ones are still being used.” – Liz Woodland

“They are so well fitting love mine” – Belinda Reeves

“Can not do summer with our ponies without Wild Horse products. They are the only rugs that stop our ponies going wild with itch!” – Jo Butler

“Worth every cent! I have the hooded combos and normal combos it’s all my horses wear – I have two warmbloods that get the itch bad but if they are rugged in wild horse they don’t itch often and there’s no rubbing – they are also very durable! I buy new ones every spring.” – Paige Stephanie

“Diane Mills-Hayes absolutely the best eye clearance I have found so far.” – Lisa King

“I have clydyx with a white face and the only one she tolerates is the wild horse ones. She hates them touching her nose. With these ones u can steam them into any shape you want so I steamed mine to sit off her nose. It’s great and worth the money. Their well worth the money, mines now on It’s 2nd summer.”- Tracey Wickenden

“Best fly veils ever!”- Shaunna O’Grady

“Absolutely great masks!! My boy wears one 24/7 due to having an eye removed last year. Protects the eye socket from the obvious ‘flies’ but also dust and grime.”- Kay Smith

“These are the best you can get ?”- Dawn Swales-Villani

“I bought a fly veil 2- absolutely love it – great fit, doesn’t collapse and keeps the sun off my mares nose without being too cumbersome. Fabulous design- highly recommend. If you need nose covers I would recommend the ripstop cotton. Nice and soft and better shape than anything on the market.”- Kelly Gulliver

“No better fly masks and rugs for insect and UV control ??” – Dawn Swales-Villani

“These are GOOD!” – Kathy Diener

“Love my Wild horse fly veils! They don’t collapse in at all and yes I’ve had them come off in the paddock but that’s been on a cheeky little horse… My good girls fly veils don’t move.”- Lucille Raglus

“Best fly veil ever.” – Nan Jan

“Since moving to Northern Rivers my ponies have suffered itch terribly, I’ve tried every potion there is and nothing gives them relief like the Wildhorse rugs. I love these rugs for so many reasons; the quality, pretty much indestructible even with the constant itching. The fit, true sizes, fit my wide/round Connemara, nice long roomy neck for grazing without exposing half the neck to the mozzie. The insecticide infusion, only have to wipe face and legs, not cover my ponies in poison, keeps ticks away, they are bad this season. The fact I can leave rugs on 24/7 and they don’t get hot and dry really quicky after a storm. And most of all I love the customer service, the girls could not be any more friendly or helpful.” – Tina Arena

“Best fly veils!” – Alexandra Cooper

“Best ever! All my girls have these including my cremello with the nose. Actually need to order another for her daughter.” – Shaz George

“Best fly veils ever! They hold their shape and I get more than one season out of them.?” – Georgina Kirk

“Very happy with mine. The fit and fittings are quality especially the neckrug buckles, love them. Definitely made a big difference to my mare being comfortable without sprays. When I’ve changed her to a different rug it’s very noticeable the amount of flies that gather on her versus the Wild horse rug. Will definitely buy one again.” – Rachel Whitbread

“Best rug I have purchased is the super strength mesh, well worth the $$$$” – Lynda Craw

“Such good fly veils! I love them” – Charline Remy

“Put my new Wild Horse rug and fly Vail on today, very happy with the quality and the fit.” – Tracy Harrison

“These are amazing we have 7 and love them” – Amber Pritchett

“Well worth the money! I had 2 horses suffering severely from biting insects. These rugs really do work, saving my mares a lot of stress and me a lot of heartache. ???????” – Shiralee Adkins

“I had one of these come with my stallion. He’s worn it most of the summer, when it’s gets manky, I pop it in the dishwasher on the top shelf and still comes out like new & in shape.” – Errin Whittingham

“The best fly Veils on the market, & I’ve tried them all over the years. All our horses are in them & love them. Highly recommend them to everyone, even the ones that hate fly veils keep them on.” – Jill Pearson

“My favourite fly veils and I have them on all my horses. Mesh stays in shape and the mesh is much easier to see through! They wear extremely well and I have had some for years without needing new ones each year. ❤️ these products.” – Loretta Truscott

“Love my Wildhorse fly veils. I use the ones with the treated nose fabric to protect 2 pink noses. Never had an issue with them at all.” – Karene Mills

“Best fly veils! All my 3 horses can’t wait to have theirs on in the morning. Stays off their eyes and shields from the sun on harsh days too.” – Rachael Olden

“One of the best fly veils for eye clearance I’ve found” – Amanda C Findlater

“Best veils out. Have spent $$ on others to have them fail but these are the only ones for Appaloosas with uv sensitive eyes.” – Jo Fowler

“The only rug for my Horses, well worth the money” – Wendy Bennett

“The Wild Horse fly boots are the best investment I ever made for my horse” – Sandy Hannan

“Awesome rugs” – Debbie Hage

“Good masks that are harder to get off, also lightweight mesh rugs” – Nat Miller

” I was sceptical and thought they were too expensive. They are the best.”

“Even my Molly mule with pink eye rims loves hers, never tries to get it off and even with all her rolling they don’t lose their shape. The special peak for horses with eye issues really stops the UV from penetrating

“Never use anything else. They last for years, and always retain their shape and stay away from the horses eyes. Our horses love their WHA fly veils. 🙂
