And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    UltraShield EX Fly Spray is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 491.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from horse's coat is incredibly smooth, soft, & shiny I am revising my previous review. I called it greasy and gave it a very poor review, but after using it for about a month now, my horse's coat is shiny, incredibly soft and gleaming. I want to pet her all the time! I have no review of its actual fly protection, but for a nice coat, it's worked wonders. Either that or all my currying every day :)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wish I would have tried the spray bottle the cans one hardly sprays it is more of a drip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aerosol Spray Purchased the smallest bottle offered and it came in an aerosol can. I love the idea of an even spray. Works great!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Left my horse slick Bought the Ultrashield black bottle after liking it before but mistakenly bought the EX version. It leaves a terrible slick feeling on his coat and attracted dirt and dust.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fantastic! Bought this two weeks ago and absolutely love it! Keeps flies off my two horses better than anything I've used before.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fly spray! I adore this fly spray - and it smells good too! I love buying the gallons at the end of summer for such great pricing - and this time it came with an extra bottle! Thanks Smartpak =)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used this for years and love it I've used alot of fly sprays over the years and keep going back to this one. We have terrible flies and gnats here so a good repellent is essential. I've noticed it works better than the sprays on other horses.
    Date published: 2017-08-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-Around Great Product It isn't oily, each bottle lasts quite a while, the smell isn't overpowering, and it offers great protection from pesky insects. My horse currently lives in a wooded lot and after I spray EX on her the flies don't bother her near as much as they would be otherwise. She just seems so much more comfortable.
    Date published: 2017-08-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best fly spray! After many years of using various brands I stumbled upon Ultrashed EX and now won't use anything else. It seriously keeps the flys away and seems to keep working for quite awhile.
    Date published: 2017-08-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Spray Wonderful product, isn't too oily, keeps ALL insects away, helps horses coat not to bleach, & conditions coat. Highly recommend!
    Date published: 2017-08-24
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaves coat slippery and greasy I can't say this spray works any better or worse than others I've used. My horse still stomps her feet, swishes her tail, twitches, and shakes her head. What I definitely do NOT like about it is the added lanolin/skin conditioner. It leaves the coat with a show sheen feel in places, very slippery, and greasy in others, with a residue that collects dust on the coat. Not a good feel at all

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works!!!!! I went trail riding two weeks ago with a couple of buddies and it's very hot and humid in Virginia. The other two horses were "absolutely miserable", the Flies were all over them, they kept bucking or turning around to swat at them... My horse was calm and never flinched the whole ride (about 2.5 hrs..), one of my friends said "Why is your boy Not being bothered by flies & ours are being Eating Alive????" I told them that I use Ultra Shield .... They Both Orded it the next day!!! We actually laughed that "Wow, we just made a Commercial"!!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fly spray This has an unusually heavy season for biting flys. This spray ha helped.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and enhances the haircoat Of all the fly sprays I have tried over the years, this is by far my favorite. I have always owned TBs or TB crosses with sensitive skin. Oil based sprays I tried previously caused welts and/or hair loss. Water based sprays just didn't work. UltraShield EX provides the perfect combination of an effective fly spray along with coat conditioners and sunscreens that leave my horses' coats soft and shiny with no negative side effects. I usually apply it daily to maintain the highest level of protection, but it does seem to repel flies for 2-3 days in a row. After applying UltraShield EX, my horses stand relaxed in the field while their pasture-mates are still being attacked by flies. I would definitely recommend this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I normally don't purchase Ultrashield EX fly spray but smartpak had a great sale so I thought I would try it. I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and it has done a great job of keeping the little black flies from landing all over my horse. One plus is the smell isn't offensive like some repellents, and it has staying power.
    Date published: 2017-08-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only spray that works No fly spray works forever, but this one works pretty good. In fact, I spray myself when I ride in tank tops and it keeps those buggers off!
    Date published: 2017-08-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good Works every bit as well as tritec14 We're having an extra buggy season!!
    Date published: 2017-08-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly spray I've ever found. Great at fly control and even has sun screen that my chestnut and white paint needs.
    Date published: 2017-08-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever! After trying several other fly sprays on the market, I always go back to this brand, Ultra Shield! Will not change to another again
    Date published: 2017-08-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great!! I've used this for years. Love that it has sunscreen also.
    Date published: 2017-08-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Flyspray! It works! My mare is sensitive and she csn handle the bugs with the spray much better!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price Was on sale plus I got a free quart bottle with the purchase of the gallon.
    Date published: 2017-08-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fly spray I like this fly spray a lot. It works well and doesn't irritate any of my 4 horses. Only thing I didn't like was since the day I received it the nosel did not work properly and a lot leaked out. Overall good product!
    Date published: 2017-08-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fly Spray Ever! I find the UltraShield EX Fly Spray to be the most effective fly, mosquito, gnat & tick killer & repellent. It also kills lots of other unwanted insects. I use this spray on my horses and also as a premise spray at the barn and my home. Gets rid of any invading insect or arachnid, including ants & cockroaches! Also safe for dogs.
    Date published: 2017-08-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indicates it is the top of the line I have used this product for years and it has always performed better than any other fly spray that I have used. it is effective against biting stable flies (the kind that go after the legs) as well as face flies.
    Date published: 2017-08-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always works, kills bugs on contact! I have used Absorbine UltraShield for several years. Ocasionally I have tried other fly sprays but have always been disappointed in their ability to actually repel and/or kill flies. UltraShield is safe enough to use on a horse's tender/sensitive skin areas such as the face and between their legs. Some other sprays I have used caused this tender skin to peel. I am an Absorbine UltrsShield fan forever, it kills on contact and repels flies, mosquitos, gnats and other pesky bugs.
    Date published: 2017-08-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad. Replaced my former fly spray with ultrashield. This wprks much better and my black horse is not bothered as much.
    Date published: 2017-07-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the sunscreen aspect Not many fly sprays I've found contain the sunscreen I need for my pale paint mare. Product works well enough, but it certainly doesn't last the length of time the label says.
