Ear protection for my horse? I’m all ears. Horse Ear Bonnets, or Ear Nets, are usually mesh woven fly control accessories that can also be woven into layers of spandex for extra protection and comfort. Mesh ear nets serve two main purposes. Firstly, they do a great job of keeping horseflies and other biting, buzzing insects out of your horse’s ears, preventing infections. Horses that are easily startled by buzzing and biting bugs can be antsy, which can cause displays of discomfort like pacing and head swaying.
Secondly, ear covers that are layered with spandex, like this one from Equifit are designed to keep pesky bugs out of your horse’s ears and are also great at muffling distressing sounds that may cause your horse to panic. They are also good at keeping your horse from getting distracted.
One Stop Equine Shop carries a variety of ear nets that can fit into any budget. Keep those pesky bugs out of your horse’s ears, check out our collection of mesh and spandex ear nets!
