We all love the summer sunshine but unfortunately for some of us this brings the dreaded Sweetitch

Sweetitch is caused by the horses allergic response to the bites of one of the many species of Culicoides Midge. If this is not prevented and tackled in time these bites will cause the horse to itch and rub the areas affected until they are left with raw, sore and weeping patches.

Most commonly affected areas are the mane and tail but neck, withers, ears and belly can also be affected.

 

Prevention is the key to give as much comfort to the horse at this time of year and as well as a good quality Sweetitch rug you can also use Anti Midge products, Benzyl Benzoate and Brewers Yeast.


Try to get a field with some hills, which will be susceptible to more breeze, and preferably away from any streams, wet areas and woodland which are a breeding ground for midges.

Grease, dirt and dandruff can also attract midges so a regular bath can help.


You should if possible, stable the horse at night and if you find they are getting irritated indoors then fans and fly strips (hanging far enough away so the horse cant reach them ) can be a great addition to the stable.

The Horseware Ireland Sweetitch Hoody can be a godsend through the summer and it has fantastic coverage of the body, giving extra depth for added protection.

It is made with a strong 1000denier Polyester Outer and has an integrated hood with ear holes and a supersize tail flap for extra coverage for the tail and bottom.

The Sweetitch Hoody has a mane and shoulder liner for added comfort and to prevent any rubbing.  This rug comes complete with a FREE Fly Mask to match!
