Wind, flies and loud noises can trigger a flight response in horses and to combat this, ear bonnets can be used to block out some of these factors.
Horse ear bonnets sometimes referred to as fly nets or ear nets, are designed to fit comfortably over the horse's ears and be held in place by the headpiece and brow band on the bridle. Horse ear bonnets or ear nets were created to muffle and block out loud noises with the intent to limit the anxiety a horse may feel when out and about at busy shows or competitions. Soundproof bonnets have become increasingly popular in recent times, due to the thicker ear protection and therefore blocking out more sound than a standard eat net, proving to be more effective at minimizing reactivity caused by noise. Whilst bonnets and ear nets provide a practical purpose, in recent times they have become a ‘matchy matchy’ fashion statement.
Noise aside, flies can also prove to be an annoyance to horses. While some horses do not care, others can become very irritated. Horse ear nets/fly nets or horse ear bonnets can all prevent flies from annoying your horses, especially around the area of their ears.
