KM Elite Products are extremely proud to be supporting a PINK campaign to raise funds towards finding the cure for breast cancer. Last year companies involved in the campaign donated cheques in excess of one million dollars and this year they aim to double it!

The best selling Cashel Fly Mask now has the option of PINK EARS! Cashel will donate 5% from each pink mask sold to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation who for more than 20 years has been a global leader in the fight against breast cancer through its support of innovative research. The Komen Foundation fights to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by funding research grants, supporting education, screening, and treatment projects in communities around the world.

Fly masks discourage flies from landing on the nose and irritating your horse. Each fly mask is hand-made by Cashel. All have the unique three-hole cap for ears and forelock that provides stability and a great fit. This version is Long Nose with PINK Ears.

The unique design of the eye darts keeps the mesh well away from the eyes, making this mask safer and more comfortable. The plastic coated mesh is durable, blocks 70% of damaging UV rays and reduces symptoms of Head Shaking Syndrome.

The only mask carefully designed to fit your horse's head without gaping at the edges, the close fit of the Crusader® will keep flies from crawling inside the mask.

A fly mask  is a type of mask that is used by horse owners on their horses to cover the eyes, jaw, and sometimes the ears and muzzle to protect the horse from irritation from flies . Marks are semi-transparent and usually made from a mesh thus   allowing the horse to still see and hear  whilst wearing it. Some masks may also provide some protection from UV lights. Fly and mosquito protection is a very important part of equine care , this is because biting insects can not only be very irritating for the horse but they can also transmit diseases. 

A standard fly mask is not usually used when riding your horse as the design can interfere with the bridle and the minimal visual impairment of the mesh presents a safety issue.

It is also recommended that a fly mask is taken off and inspected daily, they should also be washed regularly. Some horse owners also remove the fly mask at night.

Non horse owners are often concerned when they see a horse wearing a fly mask as it can appear that the horse has been blindfolded. However this is not true as even a durable mesh is fine enough for the horse to be able to see through it.
