Why did you choose this?
Is this item durable? I do a lot of trail riding, often through thick brush and branches, so I'm looking for something that can hold up to that kind of riding without easily tearing.
Best Answer: I did buy this item but have never used it because I also bought a Cashel ear net and have been using it. I do not know how the crocheted ear net would be in brush. The Cashel was cheaper and is still listed on the StateLine site. It is a finer mesh and is fairly snug fitting so I think it would do well with branches and such. It has held up for a year; I use it a few times a week several months a year in an outdoor arena that has lots of gnats and flies and it keeps my guy from shaking his head. I think the crocheted item would do well in an arena; lots of jumper riders use them. Just don't know about brush so I would go with the cheaper Cashel.
Can a stabled horse wear this while in the stall and keep it on?
Best Answer: Not a great idea for anything longer than a few minutes (ie while being tacked up). Your horse may rub his head/ears, and the bonnet will move out of place at best, or get caught on something in a bad way. The throat string comes around and I tie it on the other side in a quick-release knot, though there isn't much extra length to play around with. Best for riding only, and not in a stall or in a paddock.
Will this fit a 14' foot pony?
Best Answer: My best guess is that it will probably hang so far down his face that his eyes are partially covered.
