Air Mesh Fly Bonnet
Caribu Fly & Insect Air Mesh Fly Bonnet
Our mesh fly bonnets are made from a very soft & durable 410gsm fly mesh (same as we use in our 410gsm mesh horse rugs). The soft mesh is a lot more flexible and comfortable compared to stiffer mesh fly masks. Our design moulds to the shape and contours of your horses head very closely.
These Fly masks offer a great alternative to using a hooded horse rug for ear protection. The unique double locking neck velcro tabs allow for lots of adjustment to ensure you get a good fit.
Don't like Enclosed Ears? With this design the ears are attached & bound in such a way that if you prefer to use the hood permanently without ears - they can be cut off down low and the ear hole will still remain bound and prevent fraying.
Caribu Fly & Insect Mesh Fly Bonnets offer:-
• Soft, durable mesh with high airflow
• Unique bubble mesh eye spheres with adequate space between the mask and your horses eyes to ensure there is no interferences
• Elastics around the rear edge of the hood to keep insects out.
• 2 x Double locking velcro fasteners
• Great fly and insect protection
• Unique completely enclosed ears, (which can be permanently removed)
• Soft fleece muzzle padding to prevent rubbing
• Nose Flap to assist in protecting the muzzle from sunburn and insects
• Neck loops, should you wish to use elastics or similar to fasten to a neck combo
• Fully machine washable
Available Colours: Blue - as shown

*Horses are unpredictable animals and there is always a risk of a horse dislodging a fly mask from scratching, snagging or other mischief and then panicking if their vision is effected. When using fly masks and bonnets on horses you need to consider the horses temperament, location to other horses, environment and their overall suitability for wearing hoods. We recommend only using fly masks in safe environments where the horse can be regularly supervised at all times. Please read our detailed user guide on using hoods and masks, things you need to consider, as well as information on correct adjustment of poll straps on this link
