I need to get Basil a new fly rug - mainly for protection from UV.

Needs to be as light and breathable as possible as he'll need it on all summer.

Any ideas??

I really like the Rambo Fly Buster, I have one but rarely use it anymore but one yard I had Mac at was full of flies and had very little shelter and after a cheaper one got destroyed in about a week I bought this one. They're tough but lightweight and keep your horse cool and fly free.

I have a Horseware Amigo bug rug which are very good. According to the manufacturers they: 'Protect your pony from insects, UV rays and dirt with the new Amigo Bug Rug from Horseware Ireland. The super soft, breathable sheet includes a removable hood, extra long tail flap and extra long drop with front leg arches to cover the lower areas.
Features include:
- Knit Polyester, soft, breathable, light
- Neck Cover removable with Velcro tabs
- Front Leg Arch allows extra depth of sheet
- Tail Flap extra long with elastic to hold tail
- Tail Cord to hold sheet in place
- Original Front Closure with double Velcro
- Crossed Surcingles
- Nylon over mane to prevent rubs

Really good in the summer after you've given your horse a bath etc, as they keep them really clean if they roll. Definitely recommend them!
