In showjumping competitions, horses frequently wear competition veils which fit over the ears and sit neatly on top of the browband. Competition veils are commonly used as they muffle out the sound from the crowd helping the horse to focus on his job. Online for Equine offer a range of competition veils which can be personalised and embroidered to your requirements; Mattes offer a superb collection which can be bespoke made to your exact requirement. Fly veils are used during the warmer months to prevent flies from bothering the horse and biting the pinna of the ear. Ensuring your horses ears are well protected during ridden work will help him to focus on the job at hand and perform at his best.
