|Testimonial||My dark bay thoroughbred Jet is another sensitive soul who attracks flies, so wears a flysheet. I used the gel before hacking, schooling and dressage competitions. It is very good value for money and brlliant, but I'd like to see how effective it is against horse flies as Jet has a very bad reaction to them. This gel is quite strong smelling, but was easy to apply with a sponge and lasted several hours. I liked that you could apply it exactly to vulnerable areas and rub it in and the horse took no notice. It worked very well and score it 8 out of 10. - Debbie McNab.|
