Horse head protection

Horses are regularly injured during transport because they are frightened or become spooked or restless due to unforeseen events. Waking up after anesthesia also means danger to the horse’s head if the animal staggers, stumbles or even falls several times. Injuries range from minor to life-threatening. To avoid this, the EQUIVIZOR head guard was developed to protect the animal’s head during falls and impacts.

The mask consists of three components:On the outside, a 13 mm thick layer of EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) protects the underlying structure. This consists of several 25x35mm wide strips made of a foam-like, shock-absorbing material that rests softly on the horse’s face. The mask is attached with a strong holster that guarantees a secure fit.

Their specific design with face and cheek holes allows maximum ventilation in the process. The ears are outside the mask, which supports the optimal fit and does not restrict the animals when listening. The specially developed quick-release fastener enables uncomplicated and fast donning and doffing of the mask.

EQUIVIZOR head protection is also particularly suitable for blind horses whose head needs to be protected from impacts and wounds. You can also learn more about this from the book “The Blind Horse” by Ellen Drost.

The EQUIVIZOR headguard is lightweight compared to similar products:

Foal – 650g
Pony – 1100g
Thoroughbred – 1200g
Warmblood – 1400g

Optionally, the matching UV-resistant eye protection net can be ordered (weight depending on size 50g – 150g), which can be opened in the middle by a zipper and thus allows quick access to the horse’s eyes.
