The Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) has a series of educational videos designed for their riding instructor member and horse owners. We have partnered with CHA to bring some of these to you for use in educating your students or boarders, and perhaps as a refresher to you.
Following is the “Introducing Your Horse to Fly Spray” video from CHA. This is an important topic in boarding stables and for riding instructors for the health and safety of horses and humans. When flies are pestering horses, they can become a threat whether the handler is on the ground or in the saddle. So being able to apply fly spray (or some alternative deterrent) is almost required for horses who are going to be around humans.
