Try washing area throughly to make sure not a fungal cause ! Then fly spray and mask
Hello Hazel,

During summer time horses are harassed by insects and that can provoke the reactions you can see on your horse…

The first thing to do is to protect your horse from the attacks of the flies !

In our product range EMOUCHINE, you’ll find a large choice of fly repellent products.

First the best is to shampoo your horse with EMOUCHINE SHAMPOO, then complete by apply regularly other Emouchine products depending on what you prefer : EMOUCHINE TOTAL, EMOUCHINE VERT, EMOUCHINE ROLL-ON…

In your case I would highly recommend Emouchine Roll-On or Emouchine Gel, perfect for a precise application on the sensitive areas, for example the ear contour area if you horse seems to need it.

For the protection of the affected area (it is very often the tail, the mane…) EMOUCHINE DERM LAIT is a dermic milk for summer. Its soothing effect is immediate. It maintain the skin integrity. Its fine tip applicator enable a precise application.

During periods of risk, you can apply it daily, then every other day or every three day or more when it’s getting better for your animal.
You can also anticipate these periods, by applying it every three days.

I’ll give you below the detail of every product of the product range EMOUCHINE and several pieces of advice to spend a chilled summer ! :)

-EMOUCHINE TOTAL spray is an insecticide coupled with an insect repellent with a long effective period and an enjoyable fruity fragrance. To maximise the long-lasting effect, we advise you to apply around 40 sprays every day then gradually space out applications. Silent it does not stain and stick. For the recprd you can buy the refill of 1,5L that will allow you to refill your bottle ! (insecticide)

-EMOUCHINE VERT contains natural extracts of pyrethrum and sassafras. Its effect is immediate. It has a fresh smel, does not stain and stick. Its lasting effect will be however a bit shorter than the Emouchine Total one. (Insect repellent)

-EMOUCHINE FORTE is a raw material that obviously proved itself, with its very long-lasting odor ! To water down 5 times, use a rag and gloves.

-EMOUCHINE ROLL-ON is a gentle formula made of DEET applied thanks to a roll-on. It is perfect for delicate areas such as the eyes contour, ears, stomach, mucous membranes.. It is very practical when you’re going for an outside ride because it can easily fit in a pocket and is easy to apply because it’s very fluid. You have to regularly renew the application during your ride. (insect repellent)
-EMOUCHINE GEL on the same principle also made of DEET, is perfect for sensitive areas such as the eyes or ears contour. Its gel texture is very easy to apply ! The gel resists better to sweat and has a really good adhesion on the skin. This is very useful for horses with an intense activity (excellent feedback from members of our horse-ball team) and the format is economical. (insect repellent)

-EMOUCHINE SHAMPOO is a shampoo with a particular washing base, perfect to kill two birds with one stone : wash your horse and delay the insects’ harassment ! As every shampoo of the Ravene range, it obviously respects the sensitive skin of the horse whom epidermis is finer than humans’ one and pH is less acid. (Hense the interest to use adapted shampoos for horses and not human shampoos!) Its fragrance is fruity !

EMOUCHINE DERM LAIT : It’s a dermic milk for summer. Its soothing effect is immediate. Your horse is scratching? Emouchine Derm Lait protects the affected areas and maintain the skin integrity. Its fine tip applicator enable a precise application !

To spend a chilled summer with the Emouchine product range, I advice you to :

Regularly wash your horse with Emouchine Shampoo
Then globally protect him from the insects attack with Emouchine Total, Forte or Vert
Protect him especially on the sensitive areas for examples when going on pasture or during training (head, stomach, legs…) thanks to Emouchine Gel or Roll-On
Apply Emouchine Derm Lait when your horse gets itchy !
