Do fly sheets make horses hot

Fly sheets are typically made of open weave mesh, which is designed to be breathable and allow air to circulate around the horse's body. This helps to keep the horse cool, even on hot days. However, it's worth noting that wearing any extra layer of clothing, including a fly sheet, can make a horse feel slightly warmer than they would without it.

Horse Fly Sheet

Performance Horse Blankets offers high quality fly sheets made of breathable materials and designed to fit the horse properly, and won't make the horse overly hot or uncomfortable. Horses that are turned out in direct sunlight for long periods of time may feel hotter and sweatier, regardless of whether they are wearing a fly sheet or not. Therefore, it's important to monitor your horse's temperature and behavior to ensure they are comfortable and not overheating while wearing a fly sheet.
