We've had most success in recent years (since our vet recommended it) w/ Pyranha spray in yellow spray bottle.  In fact, we're SO happy w/ it that once a year I order a case (4 gallons) which w/ two horses lasts us all of a one year, and often well into second year, depending on how bad the flies are (which is pretty much dependent on how much rain we get).

Have to agree with loneelk--Pyranha is the only thing that helps with the flies.
 Make sure it's the oil based one--they put out a water based one a few years ago, which didn't work as well.

I use for trail riding sweat proof only.  Tri tec or  Endure - which are the same product.  I find all others do not work.  Around the farm I use Absorbine, Bug off.  I change it up.  I get from TSC. 

After trail riding I always hose off the horse very well.  So there is no overlapping off too much fly spray.
