What Are Horse Ear Bonnets?
Horse ear bonnets have become popular for both practical and fashion purposes. On the practical side they offer the ears protection from biting insects such as flies and gnats, helping to reduce head shaking and to contribute to quieter, more relaxed, and more focused rides both in the show ring and on the trail. This can be useful for any horse, and may be particluarly helpful for horses that have had their ears clipped. Some, but not all, ear bonnets are also made to help muffle and reduce noise, which can also contribute to quieter rides.
In addition, some owners of light-colored horses like to use ear bonnets beneath their bridle to help prevent stains from the headstall from rubbing onto their horse.
As a fashion accessory they are hard to beat. They can look great in colors that match the rest of the horse's tack, tying everything together for an overall, professional look; or they can be a bit wild and crazy just for fun.
Note: If you plan on using an ear bonnet during competition make sure they are allowed by the rules of your particular competition.

Tips For Buying Custom Ear Bonnets For Sale On Etsy
The best tip we know of for a smooth Etsy transaction for you and the seller is simple: Communicate! Begin by reading the product's description to find out such information as:
- What is the bonnet made of? Is it made of the same thing throughout, or were different materials used for different areas?
- Can it be washed, either by hand or in a washing machine?
- How big is it? Does the seller give sizes (mine, pony, cob, horse, warmblood, draft, or whatever)? Or, does the seller give specific measurements?
- What shape is the horse ear bonnet? They commonly come in shapes described something like "V" shaped or "U" shaped. If the seller doesn't say, be sure to look at the photos and/or ask about the shape before you buy.
- Does the ear bonnet help muffle noise? Some do, but many do not. If you're not sure, and it's important to you, ask the seller before you buy.
- How long will it take to make your custom bonnet after you order it?
- Where will the horse bonnet ship from? What will the shipping charges be?
Last but not least, if you have any questions about a custom horse ear bonnet be sure to ask the seller before you buy! Look for the "Ask a Question" button on the right-hand side of an item's description, to the right of the photo(s).
