Why are the Prestige Horse Fly Masks more expensive then other masks on the market?
We are often asked the question. The primary characteristic of the masks is its quality and durability. The masks have been known to last years. Additionally, the mask is designed as such that it will prevent unnecessary bruising and injuries caused by the horse's natural need to scratch. Although it doesn't prevent the horse from scratching, the adjustability of the mask and the attention to detail from the mask being handcrafted provides greater comfort and therefore limits the need for the horse to want to have the mask removed. Overall, when purchasing a Prestige Mask, you are buying protection that will last against multiple elements.

Why the patches on the mask?
The patches were introduced during the very beginning of our research when it was observed that horses scratched on very specific areas of the mask. Patches were then placed first to increase durability. Further development then showed that they also prevent or limit bruising if the horse were to scratch.
