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

Absorbine® has raised the bar in the fly control arena with the introduction of UltraShield® EX - the sweat resistant insecticide and repellent formula that will protect your horse for up to 17 days. This repellent is an enhanced version of the original UltraShield® and sets a new standard for ultimate insect protection.

Favorite Features

  • Stays active for up to 17 days

    UltraShield EX Fly Spray is rated 4.6538 out of 5 by 286.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and less oily! One of the few sprays that lasts and isn't as oily as some of the others. Very good spray that works on all the swamp/wetland biting bugs we have around here.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from favorite flyspray This is the best option for flyspray containing sunscreen in my opinion. I have tried to go cheaper but ended up buying the ultra shield. Keeps my horses coat from fading and he has never had a reaction to it, no hives.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! I have tried the natural fly sprays and I just don't think they work nearly as well.I tried the one from smartpak and it was ok. On cold mornings it congealed and wouldn't spray. Had to wait until temp was warmer. The ultra shield works great and lasts all day. I only spray legs and belly as they wear masks and sheets. The Ultra shield has been a favorite of mine for awhile

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nothing stops a horse fly. This repellent is good for stable flies and ticks, but did not deter horse flies in the least. On the up side the spray's odor is not offensive to me or to my picky gelding. He does not like to smell too chemically.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has helped to eliminate "scratches" from my Clydes When I first bought my two Clydes I had a constant problem with scratches in their feathers, Nothing seemed to work. I was constantly fixing the symptom, the open sore, instead of eliminating the problem. Then one day a farrier told me that he used to work for Budweiser in their Clyde farm at Williamsburg and they believed that scratches come from mites biting their skin and irritating it so that they "scratch" their skin and open sores so I started using this product in conjunction with a medicated shampoo and no more scratches. My only CON is that it only lasts a few hours and the label says weeks; NO WAY.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Results We have used Ultrashield for several years now and I never cease to be amazed at what it can do. We went camping over this past Memorial Day weekend in the mountains. We sprayed the horses before we left in the morning and washed and brushed them when we got back in the evening. I lost count of the ticks I puled off of my horse that were already dead. Flies were not much of a problem since they would couldn't stay on the horses. LOL. Needless to say, we will continue to use Ultrashield as long as we ride! Happy Trails!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential resource for our herd Here is Eastern Ontario we are plagued by bugs from at least May to September (black flies, horse flies, mosquitoes, stables flies, etc.). I keep a constant supply of the gallon jugs on hand with spray bottles constantly refilled at each grooming station. I have to come to rely on this product to give "the guys" some relief, particularly our performance horses and mares and foals.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best fly spray! I've bought other fly sprays, but this is the one that works the best for me. Also leaves my mare's coat nice and shiny. I keep coming back to this one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have been using this spray for quite some time and it seems to do the trick. I apply it 3 times a week.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than most, smells better than most I've always preferred Ultra Shield, regardless of which version. Red and EX work the best, and if you compare the ingredients you'll see why; they use a higher percentage of what works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Texas Trio recommends Ultra Shield We've been using Ultra Shield fly spray for years and so glad that SmartPak had it for the best price, by the gallon, than any other website. No hassle and FREE SHIPPING! Bought enough to last the summer. Thank you SmartPak

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best that I've found While no fly spray works 100% of the time, I've found this one to be the best. The smell is pleasant. Needs reapplication just as quickly as the rest of them but seems to work better at keeping the flys away.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Spray! I have used this for quite a few years and love it. It is not only effective but goes on clean and I have not had any horses react to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful Tick repellent! I ended up buying this fly spray for the trick repellent in it. I normally found anywhere from 3-5 ticks on my horse ever night. Since using the Ultra Shield EX I haven't found a single one. LOVE the product!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Insect Spray This is the only spray I have found that adequately protects my horse from the swarms of gnats we have in Southern California. And, I does not leave a nasty film on my horse, which has been a problem with other sprays I have used. Smart Pak's price on this is also very competitive and I will always purchase through Smart Pak for that reason!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only kind of fly spray I'll use! Works to repel the bugs & ticks. Since its oil based it stays on when horses live outside and it rains. Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the extra $ I have been buying this product for at least two fly/tick seasons now. It has proved to Worth the added cost! My gelding has had lyme disease already once, and while flies are tormentors, ticks are dangerous, and I always look for a fly spray that addresses ticks as well. I can see a difference immediately when I apply this to my big Perch cross - the flies go away in disgust (lol) and my horse seems to know that my application is making him more comfortable. I also feel that I can use less of this product than others and that makes it somewhat more affordable. Thank you for your great price, SmartPak!
