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

  • Kills and repels more than 70 insect species
  • Stays active for up to 17 days
  • Contains multiple sunscreens and coat conditioners including aloe and lanolin
  • Can be used on horses and dogs

    UltraShield EX Fly Spray is rated 4.6526 out of 5 by 285.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does a great job on the flies. Not sticky but stings the eyes so be upwind when you apply it. I have not found it to be lasting several days and reapply it every day.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Necessary this summer Honestly, I try to use homemade fly spray for my horse, for cost savings and because I'm not a fan of dousing her with chemicals several times a week. I did have to resort to this this summer, and am glad I did. It is the most effective product I've tried by far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Long lasting and kills all fly's. Easy to use and also good for dogs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works! Ultra Shield EX is the only product that works here. My Vet recommended this spray because the gnats were so bad on my mammoth this year. I am sticking with this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well on my sensitive OTTB! My OTTB is extremely sensitive and irritated by any flying insect. UltraShield is the only one that enables us to have an enjoyable hack through the woods (full of bugs).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly spray, others are waste of money If you're going to spend any money on flyspray at all, spend it on this one. It lasts more than 30 seconds, unlike most (all) of the rest. There is one other that I like at 2/3 the cost, but I think this one lasts quite a bit longer. With all fly spray -- take a quick moment to brush it in lightly. It's worth it.Good to note, this one also has the BEST sprayer, as I imagine other horse people will appreciate similarly! Worth buying one just to use it for its sprayer for future refills if for some reason you don't like the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! This fly spray works and does not leave an oily residue on the horses.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works ok I bought this about a month ago. It worked for about the first 15 min of our workout but then it's like I haven't put anything on him. I think it would work better in a less humid area.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done I have been trying natural remedies and cheaper sprays for the last few years and kick myself for not just going ahead and getting the real thing sooner. It really does work for days. For my jumper I spray it on, then ride, groom, put him away, then ride the next day... no reapplication needed! I also have a retiree that lives outside 24/7 with a large herd (a fly sheet would never last). He gets this spray weekly and does well. The big gallon jug was a steal and will probably last the rest of the summer.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works okay, can't really tell a difference It definitely does not work for the 10+ days that it states on the bottle.
    Date published: 2015-08-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My favorite fly spray I don't really enjoy spraying chemicals on my horses. I prefer to go all natural when possible but this fly spray is very effective so I use this during the buggiest months of the year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but it Works! It is worth spending the extra money on this fly spray because it actually does work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistent good product Been using this spray for 3 years. It is the best I've found, esprcially for use on the trail and in the woods.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does The Job This is my first choice for the buggiest part of our hot Virginia summers. Effective, pleasant scent, and doesn't irritate their skin. Works well for 24 hours.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best working fly spray I've tried most fly sprays on the market and this one works best for my horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for horses living outside! The bugs do NOT mess around in Colorado, especially on the trail. I only get out to the barn about three times a week, and spraying my very sensitive OTTB with this every other day has made a huge difference in her comfort level! I can tell there are a lot less bugs around her when we're riding and when she's in her pen (she lives outside 24/7).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! Works well. The continuous spray is a great feature. Doesn't smell horrid like a lot of the other long acting sprays.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like Flysect Super-7 better, for it's immediate and ability to ward off flies for days

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fly spray I have used this fly spray for a few years and really like it. Along with manure management, it really helps to control the flies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This fly spray is awesome! I barely have to spray any on my horse... A little goes a long way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works This is part of my overall fly control. This spray works! I have to spray more often than I like, once daily, but it really helps my horses. I have sprayed it in the windows of my barn and when the flies touch the screen they die. I like knowing that it works

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from UltraShield EX Fly Spray really works! I started using this brand of fly spray this year, and I'm highly satisfied with the results. UltraShield EX is very effective repelling flies, gnats, and ticks. Plus, I like the fact that it contains sunscreen and conditioner, so it keeps the coat soft and shiny. It's worth the price, UltraShield EX fly spray really works!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good fly spray Works good and lasts long. I also take care of another horse at the barn and they use a different fly spray and I notice a lot more Flys on their horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I use this on days when the flys are really bad, and I between use the Ultra Shield Green fly spray. Works really well

    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.
