AGOOD FLY RUG will of­fer your horse pro­tec­tion in all the places those pesky flies love, such as un­der his tummy. Many of them have ad­di­tional fea­tures that can pre­vent coat bleach­ing and even a show­er­proof layer. In­ter­na­tional event rider Ju­lia Dung­worth and her groom, Sarah Duf­fin, have put a se­lec­tion of full neck fly rugs through their paces. Each rug was as­sessed for its fit, ef­fec­tive­ness and that all-im­por­tant value for money.

Read on to find out what our testers said and which rug won our Best in Test award.
