Official description:

The beautiful Equipe fly veil is made from top-quality cotton and boasts Equipe branding. Available in a range of colour and piping options.

First impressions

I liked the design and it turned out to also be a very popular design with my clients — so much so that it had to be retrieved from client’s own pegs and brought back to communal use!

Overview of performance

It was true to size and fitted well under the bridle. It was effective against head shaking with the flies, but the thinner ears didn’t block out the sound as much as others did.

Tamsin’s likes and dislikes

I like the design and it is was very popular on the yard, but is quite expensive.

Verdict

It’s a stylish and well-made ear bonnet, but it is quite expensive.
