Crusader Fly Mask - Quiet Ride - Long with Ears
Good Mask for Riding
My horse HATES things flying in his face. He even gets dramatic when wind blows in his face. Sooo, I figured with a move to Florida, he could use this to help focus when we ride. It fit easily over his bridle and he accepted and appreciated it like he does his fly mask. As for durability, I have no idea since I just got it, but I am giving it the benefit of the doubt! He always fits in the "horse" size everything, and this is no exception.

Works on stalled horses too!
My horse is extra sensitive to all flying creatures so he lives in a fly mask. When he's in his stall, he doesn't need UV protection and I'd like to be able to see his face :) So I had this embroidered and haven't had any issues with him being too harsh on it or it coming off. He is 16H, has a wider, shorter face and the horse size just fits across his eyes. I'm getting a second warmblood/short size as a backup and we'll see how that fits.
He is very comfortable in this mask and does have a more heavy duty mask for turnout, but for barn time I've been very pleased with this and especially with the free embroidery so I know it won't walk!

Our horse loves this mask!
Great, lightweight fly mask. Love the long nose and the lightweight fabric. And, Smart Pak will monogram if for free so you never have to worry about it showing up on another horse in the barn. Easy to put on, even under bridle.

Truely a quiet ride
The gnats and midges have been particularly nasty this summer and poor Buddy would have a cloud around his face even with wiping with fly spray. He would toss his head and sneeze so much that neither of us could have an enjoyable ride. I saw this with the long nose and ears and thought it might be the solution and Viola! it was. The first time we went out he was much much quieter and we had a much more relaxing ride. I would definitely recommend.

Fly Mask Supreme
I ride my American Paint mare on our trails and have to contend with barn flies, horse flies, deer flies and any other bugs that make Fancy toss her head and snort along the way. This summer has been horrible regarding the fly population and my old fly mask was too thick and dark, so Fancy seemed unable to see clearly and spooked more often. She also rubbed against the paddock fence due to fly bites and I often found the fly mask stuck to the fence, leaving her to the mercy of the flies.
Crusader Fly Mask is light, yet durable. It is large enough to comfortably cover the ears, face and nose and secures nicely with a long Velcro strip that keeps the mask in place. Flies are kept at bay and Fancy seems to see more clearly on our trail rides, as she no longer throws her head or seems startled by objects along the trail.

Helps with bugs
This mask provides coverage of the whole face and ears for maximum protection from bugs. It didn't bother my horse at all, even the first time he wore it for a ride. I ordered the warmblood size for a 16HH quarter horse and it fits pretty well other than the extraordinarily long ears on the mask. The ears seem to be made for a mule.
