You can help your horse with sweet itch by providing an antihistamine prescribed by the vet, by protecting them with a mesh rug 24/7 to reduce their likelihood of getting bitten and by using spray on repellants. Feeding garlic will also help to keep the midges at bay by repelling them from your horse.
