Flies are horrible where I live and my mare was getting bit up and would have new bloody sores almost daily. This has held up fantastic!

I have had some of my Kensington Fly sheets in my barn over 9 years. They just hold up to the beating horses give things. It has overall been one of the better purchases I have made over the years.

The Kensington fly sheet is the most durable one I've ever had. The one I have now is five years old and still in good shape.
Debbie R on May 18, 2015
Love the look of this fly sheet. My horse is 15.1quarter horse. I ordered a 69 first, way to short and then ordered a 76 and still didn't fit right. Ended up with a Wreatherbeeta 75, fit perfect. It's awesome!

This item is of great quality but there lacks padding at the withers so made a small sore on my mare. I added fleece and now it works great.

The reviews were very helpful. The price was great. My mare is moving to a barn that turns out all day and night in the summer. I think this product will work just fine.
Sylvia H on Apr 22, 2014
I purchased this fly sheet for one of my horses a few years ago and it held up beautifully along with fitting perfectly without any rubbing even when wearing daily the entire summer.

My horse wears a 78" In his current WeathetBetta he is 17hh and has a very wide rib cage! Should I go with a 78" or and 80"? Thanks in advance - Lexi :)
A shopper on Aug 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would go with the 80, these sheets run small! They do last though! My pony is notorious for destroying any type of blanket abc this has lasted over a year already! They also look great!
Is this the sure fit style? My friesian only fits this style of Kensington and does not come with belly band
Please advise
Lisa W on Jul 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is the fitted style
Will this work for mosquitoes also?
Shaelyn L on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We really don't have many mosquitoes. So I can't answer that for you. But it sure helps my palamino from fading. Some of the older sheets have held up better than the newer ones. If you can buy on sale its a good deal.
how do I choose the right size fly sheet?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Measure from the center of the chest around the side of the horse to the tail. Measured in inches, this is he size you choose. Great product!
I have an old kensington sheet and I want to get a new one - how do I measure the sheet to see which size I have?
Kathy G on Nov 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kathy, if you lay the sheet on its side and measure from the front buckles do the hind qtr of the sheet it will give you the measurement. You can also see if there is a tag near the front buckles that has the size on it still. It may have worn off over time though. To measure the horse you would measure from the center of the chest around the side to the edge of the tail.
I'm not sure how to attach the sheet, there are 2 thin straps and 1 wide band ? It seems to be slipping all over the place, I have an Arabian, 1000lbs. who normally wears a 68 in Horsewares...
Laura H on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Make sure the sheet you have fits the horse. Measure grin the boney rise on the whithers to the base of the tail. It should be 68". The two thin straps should fasten under the belly, the thick strap under the tail. Feel the rings on the edge of the sheet or look for the stiching. The black band should go straight down the backbone.
In the picture I can see behind the box, it seems that the straps are going side to side. I do not do mine that way. Mine criss-cross under the horse, front to back. There are three sets of fasteners. You should find that two of them will do a better job, The straps should not have tension in them, nor they should hang down where a foot could get into the situation. Be sure the chest fitting is fairly snug. The sheet has the shape of a horse styled into it. If those curves are in the right place, the sheet should hang gracefully.
Is there a belly guard available to buy with this?
Adrienne B on Aug 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately there is not. The only belly guard we carry separately is item E002186 from Cashel, which is designed for use while riding.
Nice report on the fly sheet--but no one has said anything about the material and is it stiff? rough? or smooth against the coat
Joe F on Jul 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought this for a black horse to wear during summer without much shade. It was pretty stiff to begin with. I fell out with the owner of that horse and kept the practically brand new fly sheet. This summer, a Paint at the same farm was having great sensitivity to sun, with his skin turning color and his hair falling out. The vet ordered a fly sheet and when I had this one, he said that was one of the best things I could do for the horse. Kid has warn the sheet every day since. It is not as stiff as it was, but it remains in fabulous condition. The material is like what used to be used on little aluminum outdoor chairs, (the kind that weigh nothing, and it lets the sweat on you legs dry). but it is woven with much larger threads of whatever it is. Consequently you can see through it. On the first horse, his short hairs never poked out of the weave. On the Paint, his longer and looser hair does peak out. This is a very high quality product.
The pictures show colors Hunter Plaid and Plum Plaid that are not in the color selection. Are they available?
Robert K on Jul 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry, those colors are currently unavailable. All available colors are listed in the 'Select Color' drop down menu.
Looking for dual sun and pest protection for a pink-skinned Appy. He is 14.2 but very broad, especially in the shoulders. Does anyone have a horse with a similar build and if so, does this sheet work well with minimal rubbing?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi there! I have 4 of these fly sheets. One for each of my horses. I have a 16.1hh dutch warmblood, 16.2hh TB, 15.2hh Appendix gelding and a 14.3hh paint mare. The sheets seems to fit all 4 really well with no rubbing so far. For what it's worth, both the warmblood and the paint mare are quite round.

I did go up a size for each horse (from what they would normally wear) just to give a little extra room. I had an older *(several years old) sheet that was one size too small for the paint and it did rub just a little but I think this was due to sizing and not because of a mechanical problem with the sheet.

I hope that helps!
how to measure my horse for fly sheets?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Stand your horse as square as possible. Measure from the center of the chest along the side of the body to the point of the horse's rump just before the tail. If your horse ends up measuring between sizes, choose the one closest to your measurement unless your horse is particularly big-bodied.
Measuring is usually best done with a helper and a soft or cloth measuring tape. Take the measurement twice to be sure.
Can a neck cover be attached?
Sue S on Apr 14, 2016

BEST ANSWER: It seems to. My mare has extremely sensitive skin and without her fly sheet will rub herself raw. With it, her coat is relatively clean and her skin is absent of sores. I do use fly spray on her legs and and fly wipes on her face. Oh, it also keeps her coat from fading in the summer - she is a black bay and keeps her pretty, shiny color all summer long.
Can I wash this sheet in the washing machine?
Carin O on Sep 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have washed the fly mask by hand several times so I believe you could wash the fly sheet in a wahing machine on gentle. If it has a lot of mud I would spray it first with a hose and then put it in the washing maching. Myh horse rolls a lot with his fly mask and gets it caked with mud so I just sprayed it first to loosen the mud and then washed it gently. i hope this helps
Does this sheet attach to the Kensington Protective Neck Cover?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the neck cover attaches to the sheet, though not to the fly mask. At least, that was the case with a set purchased last year.
Just opened this fly sheet, and it only has one buckle under the belly, plus two rear leg straps. Seems unusual, is this right? Diana
A shopper on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I bought this fly sheet last year and I was surprised how well it has done. The only thing sure you take time to adjust the two back straps that cross over. You don't want them too tight to restrict movement and don't want them too loose so he gets his leg through it. I have had very good luck with this sheet and my horse loves to roll and rub, but the sheet stays in place! :-)
What is the difference between the Kensington and the European fly sheet? The European claims belly protection, but it does not show.
Jerome C on Jul 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We bought the kensington protective fly sheet. It has leg straps and 2 straps that cross under belly( this is what is says under european) I don't know what the difference is but this sheet holds up very well. It is kinda stiff. We are going into to 3rd season of use and it is in excellent shape.We went thru 2 other sheets and they ended up in shreds.Our horse does not seem to sweat anymore with it on possibly less.It seems to dry quickly too if it gets wet.Very durable.I would recommend. I thought that european was a different cut.
My horses are our in the pasture 24/7. My main concern is that there are no shoulder gussets, I feel that they allow more room in the shoulder area, i do not want them to get rubbed. I am wondering if anyone has ever had any chaffing or rubbing, due to not having the shoulder gussets?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Stephanie
I love the Kensington fly sheets. They wear like iron. I have not had any problem with rubbing the shoulders.
I might have have a little rubbing at the withers but that is about it. My horses wear their fly sheets 24/7 most of the time since they are both Paints. Helps to keep them cleaner.
How far down does the sheet cover the tail?
A shopper on Feb 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The ones I have have a tail guard, so 5 inches or so. II have bought these sheets for years, without, they cover the base of the tail only.
We were suggested to buy the Kensington protective fly sheet in order to wear over our rain-sheet to protect it from rips is that correct?
Nathaly L on Nov 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would think the rainsheet would and should hold up on its own. I would not add the fly shhet over it. The fly sheet is lawn chair material; super durable but holds water in between the fibers. No rain sheet needs that challenge! I love the fly sheet and have two year use from a very destructive, big mare who lives outside 24/7. Her coat stays great and the sheet outlasts all others.
I have a new horse on its way and the owners told me size 75. He is 15.1. Should I go with 74 or 76? I'm thinking 76 might be big....
nicole F on Apr 10, 2014
Congrats on your new horse. I think I would go with the 76. I love this fly sheet. It actually forms to your horse's sharp as he wears it, apparently from the heat of its body. I bought the matching fly mask too. Both are machine washable, very durable. I would purchase this product again in a heart beat!
Are they durable?
Are they hot, do horses sweat?
Are they true to size? my horse wears an 81 would I go up or down?
Bobbi R on Sep 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: So far the sheet is very durable, although my mare is not particularly hard on blankets. I haven't tried one on my gelding; he tends to shred things. But it seems much more durable than your average fly sheet.
It is kind of hot as the material is heavier (and therefore more durable) than the average mesh fly sheet. My mare sweats easily, as she is a black Thoroughbred, so I don't put the sheet on her if it will be over 85 degrees.
The length seems true to size, but the sheet is pretty full through the rump and shoulders. My mare wears a 78 and hers fits pretty well but is a little saggy in the butt. If your horse is stockier, I'd go up but if more narrow go down.
