Everything Horse


NEW product launch.  Ruggle-it Fast for any outside-living animal or outside-working human
– Just fill with water, shake & apply or leave it made-up for use another day/week/month.
Environmentally friendly (safe for run-off, drains, rivers), super kind on skin, super quick to use
-  100% recyclable containers.
Said National Hunt race horse owner, Gay Hartley, from West Yorkshire: “Horse flies were plaguing my summer-resting race horses & driving them demented!  They were swishing their tails & tossing their heads constantly. After applying Ruggle-it Fast as instructed, calm now reigns & it’s keeping all insects at bay.
