    Hi Kim! If I was still able to ride Bluebonnet, I’d definitely get the HKM Zebra one—the Shires Zebra mask is FABULOUS!!

    Do any ride-on fly rugs not have cut-outs for saddles? I ride my very fly-averse cob in a Total Contact saddle, and a cut-out for a conventional saddle would not work.

    I’m looking for a fly ride on rug to use with a western saddle for my fly sensitive mare riding near water & millions of annoying flying creatures!!
