Crusader Fly Mask - Quiet Ride - Long Without Ears
Great fit and lightweight
The crusader masks are great as they are lightweight and easy to just hose off when they get dirty and dry very quickly. Although durability wise they do tend to rip easily (due to being so light) but overall I only use this brand of fly mask as I have tried several others and feel this brand offers overall better quality and comfort.

I love these products! I bought this to try as my mare has to stand long periods for iceing, wrapping, etc for tendon injury. She is high strung and was nervous with the regular Crusader fly mask on (while in the dim barn so tried this). I now use it on which ever horse I have tied up. They seem to love it and just totally relax while grooming, saddleing, or what ever. I have not tried it while riding so can't comment on that. They are a bit $$ but worth it! Especially the regular long nose style which I have used for years!

I ordered 2 of the long nose without ears, one for my half-arab gelding (14.3hh) and one for my quarter-pony mare(13.3hh), both with their names embroidered. I LOVED that option; no one can walk off with these masks! I am using them as turnout fly masks, not for riding, and they are holding up fantastically in the pasture so far (but its only been a week or so). I ordered the "Arab" size, and they fit great. I did need to trim the extra velcro off a tad, but I tend to do that on all my masks. I love the fine mesh and light weight of these masks, and the long nose feature keeps my gelding's muzzle out of the FL sun, and does not interfere with grazing. I also love that these masks have a forelock hole. A little pricey, but worth the money in my opinion. A friend liked them so much she ran to the feed store and bought one (I told her to order from SmartPak but she didn't want to wait!). I will be buying again when this set wears out- I only hope that they will continue to hold up out in the pasture as well as they have so far. Great product, love the embroidery option!!!!

Will Get Another
This works just as advertised, stops the head shaking from the trail flies while screening a little sun on the pink nose spot! Fits perfectly over her bridle. Next summer I'll get one with ears.

Light weight material. Seems to be more comfortable and cooler for the horse.

No fighting to get fly mask on
This is a great product, I do give it 5 stars. My older horse has a problem with his vision and he hated his regular fly mask, with Quiet Ride no struggles from him when I go to put it on.
