KEEP IT CLEAN
Your fly mask should be washed regularly by hand in cold water and air dried. If it’s particularly dirty, use a weak Betadine solution to prevent the mask from introducing irritants or bacteria. Many people buy two fly masks so one is available when the other one is being washed.
For a proper fit, you should be able to slip your finger easily between the mask and your horse’s muzzle, throat latch and side of the head.
The widest part of the mask and the eye seams should be located over your horse’s eye rather than higher up on the face. The bottom of the mask should be about one and a half inches below the bottom of your horse’s cheekbone.
Check for damage regularly.
