Does any one use the nose nets that attach to the bridle? How well do they work? Should i use anything else with it??
I have bought one for the mare i ride and just wondered what peoples opinions were of them!

prior to a nose net her headshaking was so bad she was rearing with it and v v stressed unless she had her nose against something - all saddle/back/bridle etc checks done
i used the equilibrium one and it attaches via 4 velcro straps that go round the noseband

I've just bought the Equilibrium one, which seems to be the best one, and horse hates it!
Tried it again this morning and he seriously hates it, so back to the drawing board for me

I use the Equilibrium one on Bailey for hacking as he hates the flies. It works a treat.

I don't school in it though as he isnt bothered if he has something else to concentrate on. You can't compete in them though without a Vets letter and I would worry that the horse would get a shock if you took it off just for comps.

Wobblybits- If you are using it for a pollen allergy have you tried rubbing a thick layer of Vaseline round the inside of his nostrils? My vet recommended this for a horse I used to compete and it made a huge difference

If you want to try a nosenet to see if it helps before shelling out to buy one, you can make one with an old pair of tights

Mind you, I had to get an old pair of tights from a friend, cos I never get my legs out of jodhpurs so don't have any tights

My horse wears one and its the best thing i own he is pretty unridable without it! I use a flash just on loose to keep it from blowing up i find it helps esp when going faster!

I use them on 2 horses with great success. Both are much happier with them on.

You no longer need vets notes to use them a Riding Club competitions.
