Through ground-breaking research it has been discovered that Horse Flies dislike stripes, hence the Zebra Print. The Bucas Buzz-Off range blocks even the smallest of insects and reduces the effects of ultraviolet radiation.

The Bucas Buzz-Off range blocks even the smallest of insects and reduces the effects of ultraviolet radiation. A comfortably elasticated browband is fitted to the rug for a secure fit. The Integrated neck on the Bucas Buzz-Off Fly Rug ensures full protection whilst the ventilated Cool fine mesh fabric keeps your horse cool and comfortable. A padded front strap with hook and loop over closure guarantees a secure fit and easy fitting. The Bucas Buzz-Off Fly Rug with Full Neck offers the ultimate protection against UV.

Why a Zebra Fly Rug?

Dress your horse up like a zebra this summer and keep him fly free. Following trials in Hungary and Sweden, researchers have discovered that horse flies hate stripes, which is the reason behind Bucas’ latest fly rug design.

Pallets containing vegetable oil were painted different patterns of black and white stripes or all black or all white. These pallets were then placed in a fly-infested field and results showed that there were far more flies in the black painted pallets, fewer in the white but the fewest flies of all were found in the pallets painted with very thin black and white stripes.

Afterwards, researchers carried out a similar trial on model horses covered in glue. At the end of 59 days, the black horse had caught 562 flies, the brown one 334, the white one 22 and the zebra patterned horse had just 8! It is thought that the flies find the stripes confusing and as a result, they tend to steer clear.

Based on this research, Bucas has developed a first of its kind fly rug with thin zebra-like stripes, to keep horses free from the stresses of summer flies for good. This unique zebra fly rug, which is the same design as the Bucas standard Buzz-Off fly rug, has shoulder darts for extra room and movement, a stitched on neck, which overlaps in front to ensure no flies can get in, a belly flap for further protection and it’s made from a fine mesh fabric ensuring that even the smallest of flies won’t have access to your horse. What’s more, there’s the option of a matching fly mask, too.

Without a doubt, this clever new Bucas zebra patterned fly rug, which offers added UV protection, is definitely a product your horse would want you to buy.

* Please note: This is a very rough guide and should only be used for first reference. Measurement should be made using the fitting guide below
** If using this size guide based on the height of your horse the variance is the amount of sizes that your horse could vary by depending on the length of their back

Fitting Guide

  1. To find out your horse's rug size measure from the centre of the chest to the rear of the hind leg.
  2. Once you have the measurement refer to the rug sizing guide above (for guide purposes only)
  3. When you receive the rug please ensure you try the rug on over a clean sheet. This keeps the rug clean and hair free allowing for its return if the size is incorrect.
  4. Check that the rug fits correctly - Correctly fitted horse rugs should not be too tight across the shoulder & should reach the base of the horses tail (excluding tail flap)
  5. The rug must fit correctly before leaving the horse unattended. A rug that is too tight may rub and pull across the shoulder. Too big and it may slip and be trodden on.
  6. Please Note: Except in the case of faulty goods we are unable to except returned rugs unless they are clean, hair-free, include all tags and are suitable for re-sale.


Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question about Bucas Buzz-Off Fly Rug with Full Neck - Zebra Print?

Professional Opinion

“I love the design of the Bucas rugs. The Stay-dry material, which wicks away moisture, is fab as it means the horses dry quickly, keeping them warm in winter but cool in summer. They also fit the horses really well, never slipping, with an overlap at the front to protect the chest from being rubbed. The detachable surcingles make the rugs easy to use and wash. We particularly like the Power Cooler range as they can be layered which makes keeping the horses comfortable at competitions a lot easier.”
Ruth Asquith, Nicola Wilson’s travelling groom.

''The mystery of how the zebra got its stripes might have been solved: researchers say the pattern appears to confuse flies, discouraging them from touching down for a quick bite.''
