Rated 4 out of 5 by Love it!!! I bought this for trail riding, and I was down the road when there was an attack of little gnats that were sucking my horses blood and biting me all over my arms and neck and behind my ears. I sprayed myself firt, and it worked like magic. Second, I sprayed my horse and the gnats dispersed and didn't bother my horse at all. The only thing that I would change is the price but it's worth it! October 12, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Did not like this product. I had high hopes for this fly spray - made for the rider and the horse. First, it was not effective, did not seem to bother the flies much less repel them. The scent was a little heavy also, especially in the warm weather. Last thing, it does not spray very well. No matter if I tried to clean the nozzle or not, it came out in a weak stream. I will not buy again. August 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product This is one of the best insect repellants I have ever used and it by far is the best smelling on the market. It does work up to 12 hours for both human and equine, and is easy to apply. Down sides include it is a little pricy, but I believe it is worth it and I do seem to go through a bottle faster than other products. It is my favorite repellant and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Works Great! Highly recommend! July 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! Our horse hates water, sprays and anything that is wet. We bought a can of this at our local feed store to try out. This is the only can of spray our horse will stand for. The nozzle is quiet and covers a large amount of body. I highly recommend this for horse owners that have bug problems and a horse that doesn't stand for water/sprays. :) July 30, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Stinks As a fly spray it worked okay. My main problem with it was the smell. My horses did not mind the sound the spray can makes. I like the idea that it works for both horse and rider but I never used it on myself because of the strong perfume smell. July 29, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of Money Works good on rider , terrible for the horses. July 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it I live near the water and the bugs are everywhere. This spray really seems to work. The only problem I have is the sound the can makes when I spray it. June 9, 2012
