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'!).

Why We Love This

Too many distractions for your horse? Help him tune out noise with these 100% Merino Sheepskin Ear Puffs. These Ear Puffs are super soft! If the Ear Puffs don’t curb the spooking we highly recommend the Sekur-Grip. Black and Brown.

    Ear Puffs is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I've been using these for a few weeks now with my ottb. We have a snow sliding off arena roof problem in the winter and these help block out some of the noise and make the reactions not as bad but he can still hear voice cues from me. I like these compared to the dense foam because they're soft on his ears. I ordered two pairs and within each pair, the two puffs weren't the same size, one being too large to fit right and he managed to shake it out, but the smaller matched up with the smaller of the two in the second package and it worked out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from did the trick! Delighted with the effectiveness of the ear puffs. Beauregard made his first appearance on the reenactment battlefield this weekend. With 200 guns and 4 cannon firing, the puffs muffled the harsh noises well. Between his training and the puffs, his first event was a huge success!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I got these to replace some POMs that I use on one of my horses that seems to have shallow ears. These ear puffs don't stick out as much and aren't as noticeable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from My horse didn't like them I bought these because my farm can be noisy at times but I tried to use them the other day and my horse kept shaking his head and itching his ears which he never does with ear balls. I took them out and he still seemed a little itchy from the sheepskin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I love these ear plugs for our horse because they are really easy to put in his ears and especially easy to grab the fluff and pull out of his ears.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recommendation I called to buy a different set/type of ear plugs. Customer services recommended these for the ease of getting them in and out of the ears. Boy am I glad I listened to them. My stud that will not let anyone touch his ears now loves these and allows me to put them in and more importantly get them out. I hunt and shoot off horses so ear plugs are important to saving the horse's hearing. The same set works on my 14 year old stud and on his yearling son. And they are easy to slip into my pocket when not in use. The horses see me get a gun out and they put their head down for me to put the ear plugs in!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps young horses focus These work great for horses that get distracted or tend to spook at noises.My horses don't mind them in their ears. They seem comfy.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible! I was very disappointed with this product. Cheaply made, hard center and not nearly big enough for my horse. Might work for a small pony. I guess you get what you pay for. Would return them if I could do so without having to pay for return shipping.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bizarre shape and size These things are HUGE! They are two pieces of sheepskin sewn together, so they are nice and soft, but they are a weird shape and giant! I couldn't get them to stay in my horses ears to save my life. I finally got one to "sort of" sit in his ear, and it was so gigantic it looked ridiculous! He is a 16.3h TB with small ears for his size, but he is no pony! I wouldn't buy these again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from hard center caused bigger distraction than noise Had been stuffing ears with drug store cotton and having great results. Tried these, hoping for a luxurious upgrade. Very disappointed. There seemed to be no comfortable position or fit with these. My horse just shook his head in protest until I removed them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well for us Have been using these a few times on my noise sentsitive dressage horse and will say I like them. It seems to just block out enough distractions to keep him focused, they are easy to put in and out and don't roll away if he shakes them out and they end up on the floor. The POMMS will do that, I bought them both but this set is the winner! I do not have the feeling that he doesn't hear anything any more, it's just subdued. I am riding inbetween without them so he does not get dependant on the low noise surroundings and so far I really like it. Much better horse to ride when a lot is going on.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard lump I ordered these thinking they would be better than the synthetic ones but they had a very hard, fairly large lump in the middle of the puff. It was the hide of the sheepskin. Way too hard to stuff in a sensitive ear. I'll be returning them and getting the synthetic ones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ear Puffs! These ear puffs are great! They are the only ones my mare lets us put in. They last forever, and are SO soft and fluffy! They are small and very convenient. I take these to shows, but I also use them around the barn if something scary is happening, like snow falling off the indoor roof!! For me, they have stayed in very well, which I can't say about a lot of the other ear puffs!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality for the price. However I had to trim them. They were too big for my warmbloods, tbs, etc. They might fit a draft!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way, way too big My TB / WB mix is easily spooked and gets ear plugs for pretty much any out of stall activity. I can't really tell you if these plugs work, because they were WAY to big to even get in his ears. I noticed they were a lot larger than standard ear plugs when I got them, but there is some hard embedded in them. So I though maybe these have something special to them and would fit somehow. But no. The best I could get them in was to rest them in his ears (much too large to push them deep in), and they fell out as soon as my horse turned his head. I was laughing so much at their size that a barnmate decided to try them on her 17h Hanoverian. They were still too big. My only guess is that these are made for draft horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are mandatory for a few of my horses that are troubled by horses approaching from behind or other distracting noises. They truly make a difference in the horses' behavior and are so easy to apply and remove. I highly recommend them.
    Date published: 2012-06-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Ear Plugs These re nice ear plugs, but bigger than I excepted, and they're basically just alot of faux fur in a ball. Wish they where cheaper, but they get the job down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have! These puffs are great for keeping my horse focused - especially when snow starts falling off the roof of the indoor!
    Date published: 2011-12-22
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not useful My horse hated having the ear puffs in so much they were far more of a distraction than anything else could be. She wouldn't stop shaking her head until one or both puffs popped out.
    Date published: 2011-11-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from they help they fit my 17h appy/tb well, although he does have narrow/small ears. he shakes his head only once when i put them in, but after that he is fine. they have definitely helped him with spooking at small random noises, but he can still hear me, which i think is important. along with smart calm ultra its like i have a new horse :)
    Date published: 2011-11-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ear Puffs When my horse has his ear puffs in, he pays attention to me. When I try to ride without them every little noise distracts him. Cheap and easy to use/reuse.
    Date published: 2011-07-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nicely made product These puffs are soft and seem comfortable for my horse. I haven't yet used them, but I am hoping, like a previous reviewer, to muffle noise during ferry travel. He does not seem to mind them being in, which I was concerned about.
    Date published: 2011-03-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A titch small These are a bit small for my giant Oldenburg - I can get them in there, and they will usually stay for my lesson, but when we get back to the barn and he starts really shaking his head, they will sometimes pop out in his stall. He's not a big fan of them when I put them in, shakes a lot, but he usually gets over it once we start working. I'm not sure whether I will stick with these, or go back to regular sheet cotton - these are definitely more convenient, but the cotton seems to annoy him less.
    Date published: 2011-01-11
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not a fan These puffs are a little large, my horse can't stand having them in her ears. Also, they only come in a package of two most come in a package of three in case one is lost.
    Date published: 2010-05-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect we have been using the rubber ones and he hated them - had to fight to get them in & out. We bought these and no more fighting! They do not make his ears hurt or pull his hair!
    Date published: 2010-05-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely worth the money This was the best $5 I have invested in a long time. I have tried numerous supplements to try and keep my horse from spooking and getting nervous to no avail. I tried these out and the spooking and shying has been reduced tremendously. The puffs are soft and appear comfortable for my horse.
