Comfortable fly bonnet/fly veil/ear cover made from Fenwick's therapeutic Liquid Titanium fabric - this version with acoustic/soundless ears.
An enhancement to the standard LT ear bonnet with the ears made of a special sound-absorbing material in to dramatically reduce the impact of noises. See "Related items" below for the other mask types.
Why we chose it:
- Excellent fit: 4-way stretch fabric ensures good, comfortable fit on most horses
- Effective: Aids in relaxation of the poll & surrounding muscles: can calm and improve awareness.
- Practical: Works equally well on a wet or dry horse, can be left on without breaks, machine wash & dry
Size & colour options:
Sizes: standard size is Large, fits most horses. Also available to special order in XL and small: see third product image for more sizing information. All sizes come only in black
Legality for Dressage competitions: Note that while the LT masks are NOT legal for use in dressage competitions, our understanding is that the ear bonnets ARE legal. Many competitors use the mask for travelling and switch to the ear bonnet for the competition.
Note about 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…”
