I am in love with this fly sheet! Its is amazing for the price, it also breaths really well, I had it on my horse in 98 degree weather and he didn't get sweaty. It also fits vary well on my 16.2 Quarter draft mix.

I had to wash these fly sheets every other day on my geldings because the belly flaps where soaked in urine, cut them off just a waste. The sheet itself lasted okay, heavy for our area in the south.

i was so excited to get these fly sheets but as per the reviews, they do list to the left and the belly strap hangs too low. I twisted the the straps that go the the belly flap to take up some xtra room and that has helped. It also helped to tie the knot for the tail corad on the right. I have the fly sheet with the neck protection and the on with out. It seems as though the shoulder is cut a bit low and it pulls on their shoulders and the belly band is for fatter horses. For the price i think it is a good buy. I have purchased espensive Kensingtons and these sheets aside from the slipage seem to work fairly well for 1/5 of the cost. I have not noticed the tail cord getting gross. Maybe I have tied it differently. I have 2 walkers , 1 Kentucky Mtn and a small mustang.

This is an all-around good sheet. The mesh holes are small so even mosquitoes have a hard time biting through it. It is more durable than other brands at the same price. My 4 year gelding is not nice to his "clothes" and he has to wear this sheet all summer. Not a single rip yet and this is the second summer he's worn it. I like the tail string much better than leg straps - it rarely shifts on him. His belly is very sensitive to flies so I especially like the belly wrap. Great sheet!

You are getting what you pay for w/ this product. I have a 16.2 TB that is very laid back & not wild at all. All of his winter blankets have lasted without a single tear for the 5 yrs that I have had him. This has made it 2 weeks! It gets incredibly dirty so easily & its constantly sliding down on his left side. So when it slides down, the longer side gets underneath him & just gets disgusting b/c he pees on it. Such a waste of money, I'm definitely demanding my money back on this one. Such a disappointing purchase. Don't get the fly mask or boots (HA! those are a joke) either from saxon.

I bought 2 of these blankets. Overall they look great. The one design flaw is the tail cord. Gets very gross with every day wear. I was pleased that this blanket fit both my saddlebred and my arabian quarter horse cross. This rarely happens. I would purchase again.

I had this on my horse for 3 days. And then she ripped it. Not a repairable rip either - I mean she completely destroyed it. And she wasn't even turned out either. Somehow, she managed to ruin it within her stall/walkout. However, she did not sweat in this (in the 3 days she wore it) like she normally does in other fly sheets, so that was really nice. I like how the sheet can go across their belly. But I agree with the other reviews - the tail strap thing is disgusting... and just a bad idea in general. I wouldn't recommend this.

This is a nice fly sheet for the price. it may not last for years and years but how many fly sheets do?
I got my mare the clay/coral color sheet and it looks amazing on her. she stands out among all the other horses who have just the standered white fly sheets. I just love that this sheet is more of a soft mesh rather than the harsh plastic sheets.
this sheet is also very easy to wash. i put it in the washing machine and it comes out almost like new. got to love that.
I just really like this sheet as a whole, the only issue i have is i wish the belly band could be tightened up a little more. its a little loose but not so loose its going to be a danger to the horse.
I have only had this sheet a short time but I already have had people at my barn ask where i got this sheet. At this price I'm sure I will buy more in the future.

I bought this for my Arab/Saddlebred and it fits nicely lengthwise BUT it slips off of her back to the left and hangs off of her nearly upside down! Thinking it was a fluke in her shape, I had a friend of mine, who has a stocky paint, try it out and she got the same result, thought a bit more mild. Neither horse was bothered, but for my own it was a issue of safety. ALSO while using it in the northern backwoods this weekend, the paint horse was getting bit up real bad by the deer flies THROUGH THE SHEET. It did ward off a fraction of the bugs, BUT I would NOT GET ANOTHER. A plus though, is the wide belly strap.

I bought this sheet for my mare whos coat fades easily during the summer. I was afraid that she might get overheated since, living in Texas, there is so much humidity. I went out to check her during the hottest part of the day and she wasnt even sweating. No tears yet. Amazing sheet hangs a little low on the belly, but doesnt cause problems

The rope in back under the tail is worthless, and my horses do not like it, it would have been better with a standard clip, Needs more heavier material on the neck. The sheet was a good buy for the prices works well with regular flys but not so much with Horse flys.

This will be the 3rd time I have bought this sheet. It is inexpensive, my "three bad boys of the pasture" keep them on with some tears here and there! They are super light weight, they do NOT sweat in them as they do with other plastic sheets, the flys and 'squitos do not bother them. The tail cover/flap protects and helps their poofy tails lay flat. They wash up great and are soft. I have to agree with the other reviews, the tail cord thing is gross! But that is my only complaint. For the money, these sheets last with 6 month, 24/7 wear for my 3 guys!

This fly sheet is great with the exception of the strange design in the back. Instead of having leg straps, it has a thick cord that forms a loop around the rear to hold the back in place. Problem is, every time your horse poops, he poops on the cord. It gets pretty gross.

My pony suffers from sweet itch and is constantly rubbing even with a flysheet on. I have tried every flysheet around including some very expensive ones and they have all ended up getting ripped and caught on fences which can be dangerous if they do not break easily. This Saxon rug was recommended to me as it is cheap, lightweight and well shaped. I brought it because it is cheap as I anticipated having to replace it regularly. It seems that it offers good protection from flies but is also so soft and light it is comfortable and my pony does not rub so much. As a result the rug has lasted over a year and has been used extremely frequently. I have machine washed it and it came out nice and clean. There are a couple small rips but these are easy to fix. I have been thrilled with it and so has my pony.

I have both the standard neck & the combo sheets. Yes, they tear if your horse rubs against a fence or leans into barb wire. I would rather they tear than trap my horse in a bad situation - which happened with a Kensington flysheet. What's a few tears - I can generally mend them if necessary.
I like them because they are soft on the horse's skin - not like other sheets I had - stiff and unyielding. I can leave the sheets on for 24-48 hrs if necessary and the horses do not mind. The sheets machine wash beautfilly clean.
I can find a few flaws with the sheets: belly bands - they are not snug enough to keep flies off the belly line. I have to take binders clips to snug up. The clips work well because they easily pop off if something happens; the tail strap is kind of hokey - most people prefer a leg strap; not sure what the tail cover is for.

I have a 35 year old horse that struggles with handling heavy blankets.. even fly sheets. This blanket has been awesome for him. Very light weight... very breathable... and extremely effective for fly protection.

I purchased 3 of these sheets and I guess you get what you paid for. Two were torn and unusable after 5 days. I was lucky and had not opened the third so I was able to return it. These are made for horses right Well, I must have very rough acting horses either that or I am right about this product. Not Good.

This is a comforable sheet for the horse to wear, but it did not last more than 2 months for our horse. The material tears and snags. One of the buckles broke. Id go with a more expensive and better made sheet for longer term use.

My horse is allergic to fly spray. I do not think fly spray is good for any horse at all, I mean its a bottle full of chemicals we are spraying on our horses. This product is good to have no matter what. Even if you still like fly spray, what if you are out and your horse is getting eaten alive. Then you will need a fly sheet. I like this fly sheet because it is lightweight, breathable, and protects your horse from any type of fly or bugs. Plus, it is the least expensive out of all the horse catalogs I have looked in.
