Sign in to choose an existing horse
We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

A good bot-worm control program includes eliminating bot eggs from your horse. The Bot Egg Knife's special shape is designed to reach into crevices where bot eggs are found.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect knife I love this bot egg knife. It works perfectly, removes the eggs quickly and efficiently and I love the broad wooden handle for easy grip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does its job It's a bot fly knife, and it works. Have only used it for a few weeks, but seems fairly durable, works better than a grooming/pumice stone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Good quality - very pleased with bot knife. I hate reviews that have a minimum number of words - so I just keep typing til I hit the quota.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great I purchased this Bot Knife because the one I had was years old and very dull. There's no real way to sharpen a bot knife, so purchasing a new one just made sense. The new knife worked so much better at getting those stubborn bot eggs of of my horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Scraper! Great tool for scraping off the pesky Bot fly eggs! Works very well, I must say:) Now if only we could invent something to prevent the Bot fly from laying them.....

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from don't care for it 32 years with horses and I never owned one of these-I've always picked off the bot eggs by hand. My horses flinch when I'm using this on their bodies and constantly move their legs when I'm using it there. It'd make a great shedding tool as a lot of hair comes off as I'm scraping this several times in the same area trying to get one bot egg! Am I holding it wrong or what?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bot Knife I have always just used a common razor to get the few eggs off that i find but this year we have had so many eggs so I bought a knife. This knife works very well and is so easy to use. Inexpensive too so not sure why I waited so long to get one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product! MUST, MUST, MUST have! Best bot knife on the market. YOu can use it for EVERYTHING! It's not just for pesky bot eggs anymore! I use it for, pulling manes, cleaning dandruff, cleaning brushes, cutting hay string, the possibilites are endless!I've owned mine for years, and it never fails.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As nice as they come We rarely deal with bots in any number here-- until this fall. Most of the tack and feed stores carry cheap plastic bot knives, which inevitably get dropped and broken. This one is actually quite lovely. It's the ideal shape and size, has a real wood handle and sharp teeth that make removing the bot eggs quick and easy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! If your horse is in an area that has bot flies, this tool is an essential! The little eggs are hard to remove, but this knife makes the task much easier. Other riders at my barn that don't have their own are always asking to borrow mine. Even though the bot flies really only bother my horse in Sept. to early Oct. it is well worth the inexpensive investment!
