Bringing together our innovative and super light disc front closure with the latest in Vamoose insect control technology. RUG SIZE: 5’6 – 7’0 (115cm -160cm) In our development of the new Evolution Fly Sheet in Aqua/Orange, we carried out extensive research to support our use of this colour combination. Most insects have what are known as ‘compound eyes’, which restrict their ability to see certain colours. In fact, research has shown that most inspects aren’t sensitive to many shades of yellow, orange and red. Most insects can, however, see Ultraviolent lights very clearly. UV pigments in flowers, as opposed to vibrant colours, are what attract insects. You may notice that flies are attracted to certain colours, such as your brightly coloured jacket or car, but the chances are that this object is reflecting light in a way that is attractive to these insects. We used this research in the development of the Evolution Fly Sheet by choosing colours containing no UV pigments that are known to be difficult for inspects to identify. The pattern we use breaks up the shape of the horse, so insects struggle to identify it as a target and can’t figure out where to land, essentially camouflaging the horse against a wide range of pesky flies and bugs. Treated Treated with our Vamoose® insect control technology. Fabric The knitted polyester net body is soft, absorbent and strong with sun reflecting properties. The upper lightweight polyester layer on the top and sides of the rug is treated with our Vamoose® technology. VAMOOSE® TECHNOLOGY Features Supersized tail flap with silky lining; Disc front closure; Leg arches; Shoulder and mane lining; Belly flap with velcro closures for full belly coverage; Three straight surcingles; Integrated neck cover and fillet string. Colours Insects respond differently to different colours. Interestingly, most insects cannot perceive the colour orange or aqua, because their vision centres on different sections of the electromagnetic spectrum. This is a natural deterrent in itself. Our colour technology, paired with our Vamoose technology is at the forefront of equine repellent technology. In addition to both of these features we have combined our first Vamoose front closure system (35grm) to create a super lightweight, high tech product.

How to fit a Horse Rug

A horse rug is an essential part of caring for your horse and a rug that fits correctly is key to protect your horse and keep them safe and comfortable.

 

Measuring your horse

 

Feet and Inches

To measure your horse, use a soft tape measure and measure from the centre of the chest to the end of the buttocks.

 

Centimeters

To measure your horse for a rug with European sizing (cm) measure from the withers, across the back to the top of the tail.

 

Fitting a rug

 

The rug should fit well over the withers and the shoulders so that the horse can move freely without the rug slipping back.

 

The straps should be tight enough to hold the rug in place, but not so tight that they cause the rug’s shape to distort on the horse’s back. If too tight they may cause pressure points around the horse’s chest and wither area.

 

Cross surcingles should be fastened so you can fit a hand’s breadth between the surcingles and the horse’s body. This means that the straps are tight enough to prevent legs becoming caught should the horse lie down, but not so tight to cause discomfort.

 

If the rug has leg straps, they should be fastened so that the left strap is passed around the left hind leg and fastened back to the left side. The right strap should then pass around the right hind leg, loop through the left strap, and then fasten to the right side. There should be about 4-5” between the strap and the horse’s leg to prevent the rug slipping without causing the horse any discomfort.
