Comfortable and generally calming full head mask made from Fenwick's therapeutic Liquid Titanium fabric.
Comes without ears (this version) or with standard or acoustic/noiseless ears: see Related items below for the other versions.
Why we chose it:
- Excellent fit: Contoured cut plus 4-way stretch fabric ensures excellent fit on most horses. Very comfortable elastic fastenings
- Effective: Aids in relaxation of the poll & surrounding muscles. Can have a strong calming effect on highly strung horses - used very successfully on international horse transport
- Practical: Works equally well on a wet or dry horse, can be left on without breaks, machine wash & dry
"We use the mask with great effect on a number of different horses for different reasons and we are very pleased with the results." Sue B, show customer
Please note that these masks are NOT legal for dressage competition. The LT ear bonnets ARE dressage legal - many competitors use the mask for travelling and switch to the ear bonnet for competition
Sizing & other options:
Stocked in medium (cob), large (full) and XL sizes (if in doubt about size go for the larger one); also available to special order in small & x-small. For more detailed guidance on sizing see this page
Comes in dark grey or black, and with one of two types of attachment through which the mask attaches under the throat: a small metal clip, or velcro. The velcro provides a slightly neater look and a small amount of adjustability, but can get a bit manky with hair and bedding when in everyday use. The clip version has the advantage for travelling that it's quick to get on & off.
As with many products we sell, we offer a "tester" service. Rather than ordering a new mask via this page, you can order a used "Tester" Liquid Titanium mask to try out before committing to buy: see Fenwick testers for details and to order
Note on Liquid Titanium:
Liquid Titanium fabric is proven to generate warmth and boost circulation, making it an ideal therapeutic covering. See the pictures below showing heat-maps of a horse before and after 30mins' wearing of a Liquid Titanium sheet.

“We can personally vouch for these hoods! We’ve started using the masks on some of our stressy travellers and other than also cutting down the noise they definitely seem calmer and happier with them. Makes all the difference when having to compete the same day. We also use the fly veil version under the bridle when riding, as other than the relaxing effect it is a lovely light breathable material…”
