Ear bonnets and fly veils protect your horse's delicate ears from biting flies allowing it to concentrate on its work. These fly hoods are functional, stylish and durable.
A fly bonnet protects the sensitive parts of the horse's head from insects. The short fly bonnets, sometimes called ear bonnets, cover the ears and the eyes. The long fly bonnet, also called a fly veil, reaches down to the horse's nostrils. You have plenty of choice when it comes to fly bonnets for horses. This is a good thing, because not every animal tolerates all types. Unfortunately, the only way to find out is to try them out. In addition to functionality, appearance is also important. You can get fly bonnets in so many different colours and shapes that you are sure to find a style that fits in perfectly with the rest of your horse's gear. If in doubt, a fly cap in black almost always looks good.
Many well-known equestrian outfitters now offer fly bonnets with noise protection. This feature is generally indicated by a name suffix such as "soundless" or "silent". Otherwise, it is clearly indicated in the product description.
These types with noise protection are are usually ear bonnets. The fly hoods often consist of three layers. Cotton is used all over the inside and outside, with the sound-absorbing material in between. It should be soft and adapt to the shape of your horse's ears. After all, the fly bonnet with noise protection must be perceived as comfortable by your animal in order to fulfil its purpose. Such a fly bonnet should not only protect your horse's ears from insects, but also provide more concentration by suppressing environmental noises.
You must be familiar with local regulations when entering a competition. Strict rules are usually in force with regard to fly bonnets. A fly veil is usually prohibited in any case. This applies regardless of the equestrian discipline. Only fly bonnets that do not extend beyond the eye line are usually approved. You may also not attach the fly bonnet to the noseband. This is to guarantee the undisturbed movement of the horse's ears.
In all competitions that take place outside, ear bonnets with noise protection are also prohibited. This type of fly bonnet is only permitted for indoor competitions. You must make sure that the sound-absorbing material does not reach into the auricles or even into the ear canal of your horse.
