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'!).

Voted the "Best Summer Turnout" out by John Lyons "The Perfect Horse", the Saratoga Summer Turnout is the best selling flysheet from Saratoga Horseworks. The fabric is non-absorbent and wicks away sweat from the horse allowing it to cool more quickly. The white body reflects sun to keep your horse cooler.

The Saratoga Summer Turnout is made from soft yet durable interlock woven mesh. Elastic leg straps, surcingle, and invisible shoulder gusset. White with Hunter Green trim.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from SARATOGA HAS LIMITS BUT IS A GOOD SHEET TO HAVE have been using Saratoga sheets for some time and they have issues and good uses both, I had a mare get her teeth caught under the front so I make sure she does not wear this brand and that it is tight not loose in front .Issue two the abrasive fabric is some what solved by the shoulder pleat but it can rub. Issue 3 if you have arthritis liked me the plastic buckles are very hard to use ,that being said I like this sheet if it's not to buggy to keep my gelding cleaner and comfortable , you must always however cross the elastic under the horse and make sure he can't get a leg through i.e. came out one day and a Lipizzaner I had got both legs through the same hole . The sheet wears well and is quite sturdy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for price This sheet is very light and does not offer UV protection. The horse wouldn't sweat in it, but I was concerned about durability. Around this price there are better options.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great choice for hot climate Just bought my second one to alternate for frequent washing. (My guy finds the nastiest places to roll, so I wash almost daily!) This is a good choice for really hot weather - best combination for price/coolness and durability that I've found. True fit. Shoulder darts looked odd at first but my horse wears this 24/7 and never gets rubs. Buckles are easy and secure. Really like the surcingle and leg strap placement. It does snag, but my Rambo fly sheet (which was WAY too hot for our 100 degree summers) didn't hold up any better. It's lightweight and breathable - he actually seems cooler in the sun with it on than without.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever Along with the smart pack fly boots this is a terrible product. Whenever my horse itches himself there are drag marks where the fabric looks as if it has been rubbed up against boards. Although this product is lightweight it is NOT holding up in the situtation where a horse is turned out for 8-10 hours. Luckilly my horse is turned out by himself; as the consensus in the barn is that it would have been completely destroyed. It was ONLY two weeks after purchase that the sheet looked like I had owned it for 10 years rather than two weeks. I do NOT recommend this product; unless your horse never gets an itch while wearing the sheet!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Fly Sheet I especially like the leg straps on this sheet and they way they help make the sheet fit and keep it on (my guy likes to roll a lot). 82" fits my 16.2 Hanoverian/Appendix gelding very well and I think it definitely helps keep him cool in the North Carolina heat and humidity. My only complaint with it is that there were two holes in it within a week. I don't know if they were from his pasture buddy chewing on him or what, but it means I will probably have to replace the sheet every year, if not more often. But the price is reasonable and the quality pretty high, so I won't cry too much!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Practical and Easy to Use This is a practical, reasonably priced fly sheet. I have hosed it off while on my horse to keep it clean and it drys in minutes. Super-light durable fabric looks like it will easily last through the summer. Very happy with this product so far.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok... I bought this for my gelding to keep him from turning brown over the summer in the sun. So far he has stayed black, but that may just be that warm weather is just starting to come. I like the buckles and how easy they are too adjust, but the neck opening is huge, and if I tighten the front straps, it squeezes around his neck! I am going to continue to use it though it keeps slipping back... anything I can do to stop the slipping back?!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fly sheet but cut small I have this fly sheet for my petite 15.1 Old/TB mare. I love how breathable it is-way lighter weight than the other fly sheets I have seen. The plastic buckles make it super quick and easy to put on. And it has held up without even a snag for 3 years!But when I bought one for my new Hanoverian gelding, the cut is not generous enough for him. He's not particularly thick in the shoulders, but the front was stretched overly tight and the sides barely came down to cover his belly. I sadly had to send it back, and purchased the SmartPak classic fly sheet for him. This fits him much better. I would recommend the Saratoga sheet for anyone with a more finely built horse, but it may not fit heavier type warmbloods.
