Please bear in mind your own safety and that of your horse at all times. Ensure you have the correct size before referring to the size guide. Attach the mask to the bridle before fitting the bridle onto the horse.
Tie the elastic cords to the headpiece of the bridle in a good double bow.
Attach the velcro bands under the noseband straps (not the cheekpiece straps) so that the velcro band is under the strap and the mesh is on top of the leather. Press the velcro down very firmly to ensure it is secure.
Put the bridle on your horse in the normal way and gently pull your horse’s ears into the ear pockets as you place the headpiece over your horse’s head.
Check that the mesh is clear of the horse’s eyes and eyelashes, and that the horse can open and shut its eyes normally.
Smooth down all the edges so that they are flush with the leather straps.
You may wish to rub the binding with fly repellent (remember to avoid getting fly repellent in the horse’s eyes).
