Beat the Buzz and Keep Your Horse Cool: Why We Love the LeMieux Gladiator Fly Rug

Summer is here, and with it comes sunshine, longer days, and… well, flies. Lots of them. While fly rugs are essential for keeping your horse comfortable and pest-free, not all fly rugs are created equal. Here at Performance Horse Blankets, we're head-over-heels for the LeMieux Gladiator Fly Rug, and for good reason!

Luxurious Comfort Meets Innovative Protection:

The Gladiator Fly Rug boasts a superior, intelligent power-form mesh. This unique mesh adapts to your horse's shape over time, providing a snug, comfortable fit that won't rub or irritate. It's also lightweight and breathable, allowing for proper airflow and preventing your horse from overheating on hot days.

Ultimate Fly and Sun Protection:

The Gladiator Fly Rug offers unmatched protection against those pesky pests. The fine mesh discourages flies from landing**, while the UV protection rating of 80 helps shield your horse's coat from sun damage. This is especially important for lighter-colored horses and those prone to sunburn.
