Whats a nose net???

I recently saw a thread about a horses head shaking, and one of the solutions given was a nose net (or something along those lines). I get that they are supposed to stop head shaking but how do they do it???

How do they do what? Shaking their head? Just like that: up and down.

The head shaking syndrome most often caused by allergies, dust, or bugs. The net is attached to the noseband and covers the nostrils (it's long enough and shaped to cover nostrils/upper lip) providing some kind of barrier. If you read reviews on web number of people say it helped (and I say so too from my personal experience).

BTW, it has nothing to do with training, but rather with health.

This is a good example of how the syndrome looks like:

Lol I meant how does the net fix the issue. Silly me. Now that you say that it makes a ton of sense.

I agree that it is to do with allergies and some horses are really bad with it, worse that the video.

I have used old panty hose before but here is a proper nose net

The holes on this do not seem small enough to stop pollen from getting through but they do help a lot.
