As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Crochet Ear Nets is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 92.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more head tossing Great product, stays in place, keeps bugs off, and fits well (even under a western bridle):)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Handsome My horse looks so handsome in Crochet Ear Net. It is very well made, fits perfect and does the job. Well worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy Purchased this for my sister's 16hh T/B. Fits his head perfectly. Wouldn't recommend buying this for a smaller horse as it does run large, but it looks good in the show ring and is durable for every day use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Ear Net I bought this ear net for my 15+ hh Morgan. She has a more delicate face and smaller ears. She loves it and it looks nice on her. Only drawback is the large ears. Easily remedied with a bit of sewing, though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low price and great results I was not sure if my mare would shake her head till it flew off or not, so I figured for the price I would try. She didn't and it works great! Eats are a little too big but keeps the flies out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These crocheted "bonnets" are working great. We have an abundance of nasty deer flies this year and my horses are so much more comfortable wearing this protection. It fits my warmblood perfectly. The ears are a little long for my paint but then who cares if the flies aren't biting them. Have just had them a month but they are holding up well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a bargain I bought the tassel option. Compared to nets that cost triple, this is a deal. My horse has an average horse size head and it fits well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Functionality! For this price, this bonnet has impeccable durability, so far using it and washing it once a week, There have been absolutely no signs of fraying. I love how simplistic it is, no frills. Very professional.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this ear bonnet I have a tenancy to lose ear bonnets over the winter or generally packing things away. This one is great for the price, and at a price point you can have one in every color or lose it every winter without your husband cringing come spring when you need a new one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fo trails My horse likes this especially for trails to keep the pesky insects off. Easy to put on and fits great.
    Date published: 2012-06-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed. Several friends have these and thought I would try it. It is nice that I don't have spray ears before I ride.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $10 Very Nice. It fits my mare perfectly and is very well made. No one at the barn believes how little I paid for it!
    Date published: 2012-05-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! My husband thought our horse Ricky would benefit from ear nets to keep him from tossing his head in annoyance with the flys when we trail ride. These ear nets are effective, and they're a great value for the money. The grey color looks great on our grey gelding.The ears are a little big, but overall I am very happy with the purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Economical and effective I purchased the inexpensive ear net to try on my OTTB for trail rides. He usually shakes his head pretty badly when we run into flies, but this does the job for keeping the pesky critters out of his ears. The ears are maybe a touch too long, even for his big head, but he doesn't look ridiculous in it, and it's nice enough to use at schooling shows if necessary. Definitely worth a try if you're looking for an inexpensive fix!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase Justice has large ears and this product fit him wonderfully.
    Date published: 2012-03-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for the Price This ear net was fairly well made and fit prett well for the price. My mare has really big ears and still had enough room to wiggle them around and be expressive with her ear position.I like the way it looks on her and would wear it to special events without reservation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Inexpensive Ear Net I bought this last summer for my sensitive OTTB, who gets really stressed about flies on his ears and face. He loves it! This might sound silly, but when I go to put it on, he drops his head and stands completely still for me to put it on (a definite departure from his usual fidgety self). I swear he knows that it keeps the flies off. And it greatly reduces the head-shaking and distraction during our rides. The ear portion is a bit big, but that really isn't a concern for me as a schooling ear net. It's held up well for being so inexpensive, and I will definitely order another when the one I have wears out.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good value for price Not as nice as the one without fringe and sized bigger. If you need a larger ear net this one is for you.
    Date published: 2012-01-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! I bought this product to use on my horse when I put ear poms in (for use out in the cross country field). It looks great on him & fits well. The only reason I gave the "fit" category 4 stars is because the base of the ear opening could be a little larger. But other than that, an excellent buy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits my Driving Pony looking for awhile it's hard to fit a small pony, 11hh, in anything. Bought this thinking I would use it as a template to make my own. Turns out it fit perfect except for the ears that are about three times longer than we need. Easy fix with a sewing machine. Haven't had it long enough to judge duriability but the construction quality is good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ear bonnet for the money For 9 bucks this is by far the best cotton ear bonnet I've seen. Fit my 16.2 OTTB fine, with room to spare for horses with "radar" ears. Well made, couldn't ask for anything more!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great deer fly protection in nw indiana the summer deer fly make riding a challenge - this ear net is awesome - i put it on under the bridle and never have any problems - the horses really appreciate the ear net saving their ears from the deer flies - i rode without it once and my gelding shook his head the whole ride - not alot of fun for either of us - always have it handy now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase This ear net fits my warmblood perfectly. I tried another product previously but the ears just weren't long enough - the net didn't sit on his poll. This one fits great and I like the tassels too!
    Date published: 2011-08-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good quality i was very surprised at what good quality this was and how nicely made. its a tiny bit large for my cob-sized horse's head, but i just bought it for trail riding to keep flys off and to keep his ear poms from being shaken out.
    Date published: 2011-08-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the Price This ear's on this net are a big large for my horse but I think I can modify them so it will fit better. Otherwise this is a great quality ear net, and It's a really good price!
    Date published: 2011-08-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This product is great. The ears fit my TB nicely and has a nice long throat latch for comfort, plus looks great!
