What Customers Say:
Bronco® Gold Fly Spray is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from STAY AWAY! Unbelievable that this is still on market. Look it up. Severe reactions for years. I got complacent and did not do my research. Sprayed it on my mare and she got massive swellings in underbelly, legs and now hair loss over a week later. Required vet call (dex, Banamine, antihistamines, etc.). I was truly scared. I have had her since birth, she is now 19, and NEVER had a reaction to any other fly spray. this stuff made her miserable!! Please don't risk it. I notified retailer AND Farnam. HSUS case was opened (per Farnam - not me). I wish I had never even looked at it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hives Gave my horse full body hives and peeling skin after 1 application. Terrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as fly spray gets! I've tried every imaginable fly spray ever created. This is the only one that gives "some" relief. It is oily so it gives my horses a killer shine and actually stays on unlike the water based formulas. I have a thoroughbred who's skin peels if sprays are too harsh and this one does not seem to bother him. It is also at a very good price point!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality I’ve been using this fly spray for several years, and it does a great job at a reasonable price. It doesn’t irritate the horses, and deters most bugs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best Bought this a while ago and my horse horse had a strange reaction to it. His skin has started to flake almost like its drying out which is odd because it is supposed to be conditioning spray which explains the gross oily residue it leaves.
Date published: 2017-10-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This by far is the best fly spray I have ever used. It sprays on like an oil but leaves no oil residue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works! This fly spray works for my horse. He has allergies to many of the sprays -

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fly spray Here in Florida flies get used to fly spray you use all the time. This product is good when you try to mix it in a little.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy Bronco Gold oil based I had three different horses react violently to this fly spray. I have had horses for many years and have never had this happen. It gave them welts and blisters. I had a filly get so physically sick that we thought she had colic as well as having an extreme reaction to this fly spray. My show horse could not be ridden for almost 3 weeks and is still 4 weeks later recovering from the welts and blisters that literally had tiny pus pockets in 6 inch diameter circles that hair came off of. When it happened to my warmblood at PEC Sporthorses in Wilton, CA came up with weird welts and blisters a day after I put the flyspray on him - (I put the fly spray on one of my horses there but not the other the other horse is a Cremello and oil based fly sprays make the dirt come up.) After the welts and weird patches of tiny pus outbreaks/blisters I was apprehensive to think it was the fly spray but just in case the horse that had the reaction was sensitive to it (12 yr old I have had since born not sensitive to anything) -- I took the bottle home to my horses that are at my house (because I didn't think it was the flyspray). Several weeks later, the flies were obnoxious as it got hot again and I groomed and used the Farnam Bronco Gold on two of three of my horses at home. The one that I did not flyspray is a mini that nothing happened to. The other two horses reacted horribly!! It was put on Weds Sept 7th afternoon. I had a farrier scheduled Thursday Sept 8 at 9am. When he got there - I mentioned that my old mare had a weird lump on her tummy and it had looked like she itched it raw. I also mentioned my filly (3 yr old) seemed to be itching like crazy. As he was trimming one horse, we proceeded to watch the filly itch her side raw -- I ran and gave her a flake of hay to get her to stop. We both observed that it was odd. When the farrier left, it was about 11:00am. I fed them lunch at about noon. Then noticed about 4 pm that again - itching was dramatic. I went out to see that my older mare had welts running all over huge areas about a 1/2 inch rise swollen up off her. She had blisters similar to my horse at an equestrian facility in odd circles about 6 inch diameter with opened and dried pus pockets/blisters? My filly had huge welts smaller raised off her but she was acting bizarre. She would lay down and just look miserable then get up move around. I called my vet immediately. She asked me a series of questions which included did I use a different brand of fly spray -- when I remembered my other horse had reacted weird -- it all clicked..... She had me immediately give both horses baths with shampoo that was "soft" -- the filly felt better immediately but was still acting bizarre -- she was so happy after the bath - would run buck....go get a bite to eat then lay down. Because I know my vet well, she worked with me with phone calls. Anyone else would have had at least a $500 vet bill for this. I have continued to give them baths. My show horse could not go in the shows planned. This was bad. I have had horses for 40 yrs. I am not one to "freak out" about things. My filly's legs have sores/bumps all over in the areas that I applied the fly spray to the most. My warmblood is still growing hair in the areas reacting with the weird small pus outbreaks. My older mare has two big areas that are healing from breaking open. Please take this product off of the market - inform your buyers to pull it off the shelf.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't buy again I've used regular Bronco for years without incident, but this stuff scurfed all 4 of my horses badly - swelling, skin sloughing, etc......
Date published: 2016-08-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than most Bronco Gold was recommended by my farrier. Overall, this is the best I've used. I have not found one spray, homemade or retail, that will repel all the flies and gnats 100 percent but this one is the best of all I've tried. To receive 5 stars it would have had to keep all flies off my horse's white legs.
Date published: 2016-07-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value This is a good fly spray for the price. I use it daily when riding in the summer fly season.
Date published: 2016-04-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly spray on the market I have experimented with tons of fly sprays through the buggy Florida summers, and Bronco Gold is the best one by far. My barn supplies fly spray and I still opt for my own Bronco Gold. The lasting power and effectiveness is much better than most, particularly for the value.
Date published: 2016-03-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Average It works great for immediate use but won't last for days. It's not the best out there, but def not the worse. I would buy again.
Date published: 2015-08-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best bug spray I've tried every spray available for purchase and this definitely is the best for controlling South Carolina pests.
Date published: 2015-07-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty good I have used this in the past and found it is one with a higher level of active ingredients. It does pretty good here in humid southern Indiana summers as do a few others I use. So like de-wormers, I rotate fly sprays, sometimes bottle to bottle, sometimes day to day. Really just depends what pest is most active that day.
Date published: 2015-06-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Spray This spray does seem to do a good job keeping flies off, and smells pretty good. it adds an immediate shine to the coat, however it does make to coat feel a little greasy and attracts a fair amount of dust. I will continue to use it because of its long-term conditioning benefits.
Date published: 2015-05-09
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not last. This product does not seem to last over 5-6 hours. It smells great and makes your horse shiny, but fly protection for a horse in a field is not good. I switched to TRI TEC and have noticed a much better prouduct that last 1-2 days. I have not seen any product last anywhere near what the bottle states. I also use fly predators in field which does give a noticeable result in reducing our fly problem. I live in drought in California where the flies love to live. I did order a gallon of this product and used the product until I ran out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I love this product! It's definetely my favorite fly spray! My gelding is very sensitive to insect bites, and during this summer he goes out at night when the bugs and Mosquitos are very bad. This fly spray works great to keep the bugs off all night long. He no longer gets tons of bumps on all over his neck from big bites!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value - Strike Gold! I have used this product before and do like it - the value is definitely there!
Date published: 2013-11-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS STUFF! This fly spray really works for me. It is the right balance of effective and kind to my horse's skin. With other products with stronger pesticides, she has lost hair and even sustained mild chemical burns. With this product, she gets some relief without having to worry about her skin getting burned. I also love that this fly spray has a coat conditioner in it - nothing like a shiny, happy horse!
Date published: 2013-08-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The Bronco gold fly repellent works well on Texas flies! I don't go riding with out it in the spring and summer.
Date published: 2013-06-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once you try it you will never go back! The reviews you read are right! I was amazed at the difference. I have used multiple products and have never seen such a great response. There is a small amount of dust that sticks to the horses hair after applying, but it easily wipes off and their coat looks beautiful.
Date published: 2012-10-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well as both fly and show spray. Best product for the money.
Date published: 2012-08-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Performance At A Low Price I have an extremely sensitive, thin skinned filly. A freind uses regular Bronco and suggested I try it, but her horses look as though the bugs have eaten them alive! This spray is gentle, but a tad oily. So far so good, as there have been no reactions and my filly is pretty much free of bites. I am very happy with this spray. The oily part would bother me if my filly were of riding age. She attracts dust and is a smidge greasy.
Date published: 2012-08-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works It works as fly spray should, but it is so incredibly greasy and attracts so much dust and dirt that I probably will not buy it again. For a dollar more, I can buy a bottle of Repel X and get great insect control without the clinging greasiness of Bronco Gold.
Date published: 2012-07-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly spray! I have tried several brands of fly spray, and I always come back to Bronco Gold. It works better than any more expensive brand of fly spray. I live in the south and the bugs are horrible, but it lasts, repels, and kills flies. It also does a great job as a coat conditioner. It has a pleasant smell and the spray bottles don't break as much as others do. I would definitely recommend this over any other fly spray!
