Better than regular
My horse has a white nose and requires sunscreen to prevent nasty burns. However, she has a lot of problems with head touching so flymasks have also been my go to. I have used many many different types of flymasks, but this one is the best one. Even though it is a lot clearer, there are no burns on her nose (or her eye, which tends to get very red too). However, this product is not REALLY a flymask. The heavy duty version that Cashel also produces works great - except she loves to take it off (somehow) and enjoys me huffing and puffing around her field to try and find the thing. However, the other Cashel does not rip as easy. This one does. I gave this product 3/4 stars because I understand it is not meant to be heavy duty, and not suppose to withstand the wear and tear of my horse wearing it every day for the whole summer. However, with that being said, I had accidentally gotten this Cashel Quiet Ride about a year ago and decided to just give it a go and was very pleasantly surprised when it worked just as well as the heavy duty Cashel Fly mask PLUS she never took it off! (It might be because its softer and more see through? No clue). It lasted all last summer with a small rip in it so I wasn't too surprised when this summer came around and she ripped it within the first week. It was old, it was worn, I was okay. So I bought another one. The new one lasted a week. I was severely disappointed. I do not understand how the previous one had lasted months yet this one barely stands up to my expectations. I'm kinda upset since it costs a quite a bit of money (plus the Quiet Rides with the nose piece are not sold in stores around me and therefore must wait days for it to arrive). I do recommend it, but ... just be warned. It's flimsy, and it's meant to be.

These are great for use while trail riding as they do not interfere with the horse sight or bridal. Really helps with the bugs flying around her head. The best one has the ears and long nose. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it tear very easily where the mesh is attached to the seam. If you have a horse with a small head like mine get the ARAB/COB size. The HORSE size is definately for something larger than a 14.3 hand quarter horse.

I have a bug sensitive AQHA buckskin gelding who developed an annoying head tossing over worry about the possibility a fly might land on his nose. This is so annoying when riding as it seems to be the only thing he stays focused on is tossing his head on the trail. This mask has made him so comfortable and very happy Cashel makes these for horses like him. I purchased the "horse" size for my horse and fits him perfect. Extremely well made and worth the price. It is light weight, very breathable, and does not interfere at all with his sight or his bridle. The pleating in this mask keeps the mask off the horses eyes. We wont leave home without it!
