Talking Are Some Horses Really THIS Clumsy?

I was looking through my Dover catalog and I saw this, so I looked it up online to post it here. Anyways, my question is, what is this for? Are some horses really clumsy and fall on their heads of something?

Although I've had some trail horses who could benefit from that device, it is meant for trailering. Some horses have a tendency to bump their heads on the roof of a trailer and that is to minimize the pain or a possible cut.

Ohh, okay. That makes more sense. Lol. The product didn't have a description, and it showed a horse in the pasture, so I figured it would be for horses who fell a lot or something.

I have one for my paint I use on trailer. She has a nasty habit to move her head in air when scared or nervous, so I found it to be helpful if she hits the roof.

LOL! I have one of these that I bought for trailering as well. I don't think my guy in particular needs it but I've seen some horror stories of horses spooking in/out of a trailer and slicing or banging their heads pretty badly.

Haha yeah pretty sure that's for trailering.

This really made me laugh, when I saw a horse helmet I was thinking the link would show me a picture of a horse with a football helmet on or something haha. I've never seen one of these called a helmet, I've jsut heard them called bumpers.
I had a mare that really needed one of these, maybe one with a football face sheild too, she was a nut case. She reared up and stuck her head through our barn ceiling just because I set a feed bucket down by her with the intent of soaking her foot. She didn't get her foot soaked ever, but did get 12 stitches in her head!

I want one for my gelding! He smashed his head on the breast plate of the trailer whenever he first walks in! Lol!

I was also picturing something like a football helmet.

Sad to say, I think people should maybe invest in creating something like that, for either really really clumsy horses or for the partially blind (so they don't go banging their heads on poles and branches)...

So who's up for the challenge? Haha

Once my dad was meandering around the tack store while I was purposefully shopping, and he found a basket of head bumpers. He gave me the weirdest look, and asked what channel the horse Super Bowl would be on...
