Pom poms???

So I was browsing Dover's site and came across pom poms! They're to stick in your horse's ears when you clip so they don't get freaked by the noise. I dunno about you, but I don't think Molly would take too kindly to me sticking cotton down her ears . Anyone ever used them?

Thought it was interesting.

I have to - I just cut up a sponge though, it's far cheaper.

I think most people use these as ear plugs for riding. I know a lot of show horses who use these when they compete.. it's amazing how much drowning out noise keeps them more focused and from spooking! I've never heard of people using them when clipping though... and I would have thought they'd get in the way, even if they were pushed in pretty far. Interesting!

^^ This is what we use them for, or actual ear plugs.

I think the pom poms let more noise in, instead of drowning everything out, like an ear plug would.
