Supershield Green

Ultrashield Fly Bonnet
Absorbine Bug Defence Program

Most of us look forward to summer - long hacks down leafy lanes and horses basking in grassy fields and warm sunshine - but no sooner does the weather improve than out come the bugs! Flies are particularly attracted to you and a cloud of insects seems to follow you everywhere, spoiling the idyllic dream. You need a proper bug defence program from Absorbine!

Supershield Green® is an all-natural spray that provides a safe and effective alternative to chemical fly spray. It conditions the skin and coat while soothing insect bites and minor skin irritations. The fresh herbal scent is derived from the list of natural ingredients including citronella, eucalyptus, pennyroyal, witch hazel, tea tree, lavender, pine needle, aloe and lanolin. Public concerns about "chemicals" in products have promoted the development and introduction of fly sprays using only "natural" ingredients (usually herbs) and Supershield Green contains the essential herbs that are reputed to have repellent action. Although herbal fly sprays should not be expected to last as long as chemical formulations, tests have proved efficacy for up to six hours.

To protect your horse in the stable or field, try the Ultrashield® Fly Bonnet. Available with or without ears, the Fly Bonnet is made of lightweight yet super tough Rip-Shield material. The see through screen mesh provides shade and protects from the sun's harmful rays as well as preventing all types of flies, mosquitoes and gnats from irritating the horse's face. The bonnet features a soft fleece nose pad for a comfortable fit and two adjustable safety-release closures.

So make sure your bug defence programme is up to the job - get Supershield Green® and Ultrashield Fly Bonnet from your local equestrian retailer and enjoy the rest of summer.
