Has anyone out there ever used these "pour on" types of insect repellents on their horses? If so, what do you think.

I'm talking about the Equifly, Equispot, Poridon, types of stuff. The stuff you apply in a strip down the back to the tail, spot on, etc.

We have moved to our new farm over the winter and the flys and mosquitos in particular are really bugging my gelding out in the pasture. A fly repellent application to him in the mornings tend to wear off by the afternoon. He has always been really sensitive to insects anyway.

Also, has anyone used these types of products on pregnant mares before?

We don't have the same things as you in the UK though I am sure the chemicals are the same.
I tried to buy some "spot on" for my horses in the local farmstore and the girl wouldn't let me. She said if it isn't licensed for horses that is for a good reason as they want to make their market as big as possible and aren't going to exclude the horsey buyers. I had to agree with her so didn't buy it.
We use something made by Avon (do you have Avon cosmetics?) apparently this stuff is used by soldiers in the jumgle. it is called skin so soft and I mix it with water. it smells nice and seems to work all day.

I tried the Equispot, can't say I really liked it.
I make a bug spray using skin so soft I use on my foals
1 cup water
1 cup Avon skin so soft
2 cups white vinegar
1 tbs Eucalyptus oil
few tablespoons of citronell oil (optional)
I use this on my foals, dogs and sometimes myself
