EQUILIBRIUM NET RELIEF RIDING MASK
A unique fly mask for riding which protects your horse’s face, eyes and ears from flies and strong sunlight.
- Provides an effective barrier for flies and biting insects
- Protects from the sun’s harsh rays with over 65% UV protection
- Comfortable fit and excellent visibility with excellent clearance over the eyes and eyelashes
- Ideal for all ridden work allowing your horse to concentrate on working, rather than on flies and bright sunlight

**Nose nets and Equilibrium Net Relief Riding Masks (or similar) are permitted and must be discreetly coloured i.e. the same/similar colour to the horse. Masks or nose nets should cover the face/nose only, leaving the mouth and bit visible. Face masks/nose nets are not permitted under FEI rules, which may be applied to certain competitions in the UK.
Who is this Ride on Fly Mask for?
While anyone can use the Riding Mask, it is great for horses who:
- Are sensitive to sunlight.
- Are sensitive to flies and midges.
- Shake their heads when ridden.
How do I care for the Riding Mask?
To clean the Riding Mask, we recommend that you just rinse it regularly in lukewarm water. Do not wring or spin the material.
Please bear in mind your own safety and that of your horse at all times. Ensure you have the correct size before referring to the size guide. Attach the mask to the bridle before fitting the bridle onto the horse.
Tie the elastic cords to the headpiece of the bridle in a good double bow.
Attach the velcro bands under the noseband straps (not the cheekpiece straps) so that the velcro band is under the strap and the mesh is on top of the leather. Press the velcro down very firmly to ensure it is secure.
Put the bridle on your horse in the normal way and gently pull your horse’s ears into the ear pockets as you place the headpiece over your horse’s head.
Check that the mesh is clear of the horse’s eyes and eyelashes, and that the horse can open and shut its eyes normally.
Smooth down all the edges so that they are flush with the leather straps.
You may wish to rub the binding with fly repellent (remember to avoid getting fly repellent in the horse’s eyes).
