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'!).

Place bottom edge at Positioning Guide at top of nostrils as indicated by arrows on packaging. Press down to adhere strip. 3. After removing Positioning Guide, rub strip to secure adhesive. For Single Use Only. To remove: Pull gently but firmly from the top corner toward the middle. Do not remove by pulling up or down. Adhesive may cause slight loss of hair similar to that experienced with shedding.

    Flair Nasal Strips is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I started using these during the bad fire season. I was worried about my horse having enough air to make a hard run. I had not been doing any hard breezing for a couple weeks and had a bigger race. Ash was flying at home.I will continue to use this as a precaution. I felt like it is well worth the money for the health of my horse.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flair strips I bought this product for my grand daughters barrel mare, she wasn't having any problems with her breathing, but decided to try it anyway. First time using it, she clocked a lot faster in the same arena. So we are going to continue using them hoping for better and better times. I feel they are over priced because you can on,y use them once, but if they help to win money they will pay for themselves.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Breathe easier !!! Wow !!!! This product does exactly what it is supposed to do...opens nasal passageways for easier less labored breathing. I've always listened to my boy's breathing on our 20 mile trails through different terrain and I notice a BIG BIG difference when using the nasal strips. He breathes easier, reduced huffing & puffing and it's VERY noticeable. My only issue was after 20 miles the adhesive on the lower half of the nasal strip where there is more nasal movement tends to lift up. I've never lost one and I know it stays put for at least 20 miles through all sorts of weather conditions. It did not improve his performance, but it DID make it easier to do what I was asking of him.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use these every time we go cross country. My guy is a roarer, and I feel like they do help him breath better and recover faster after his runs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps my gelding greatly!! My gelding has a collapsed flapper, so I have to make sure he gets into really good shape before we run speed. Plus, he's 22!! The added nasal strip helps my boys a lot!!!! Would never be without them!!! Highly recommended!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product definitely WORKS!!!!
    Date published: 2015-02-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my horse My horse has EIPH and has bled before. One of the reasons is because his nostrils are extremely closed up. The first time we put these on him, they opened up his nose like I have never seen before. I am very happy at how well they opened up his nostrils. They are a bit pricy, but $10 each isn't too much to have my horse be able to breathe again. And as long as you follow the directions on how to peel it off, it hardly takes off any hair!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I bought the Flair Nasal Strips and shaved half a second off my time barrel racing, placing me where I NEVER thought I'd be before!! It was an awesome feeling and major improvement. Love love love the product and the website as it's easy to order!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't run without them! Tried these first to help my gelding breathe better when we ran barrels! Ran him 5 times in a row with them and then once without! I felt how much more he could BREATHE when wearing them! Did have a problem with them pealing off when his nose got sweaty.. Just started using superglue!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nasal Strips really work! I have only used them once but my horse, who suffers from allergies and head shaking, did noticeably better. I did not gallop him but did a fast trot. I was surprised the strips stayed on as well and as long as they did.My only complaint is that the guide used to position the nasal strip on the nose did not work very well and we wasted one strip by getting it too high. On the second try my husband just eyeballed the position and got the strip correctly placed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does help breathing issues The idea is great. It did help my horse on a hot day. Problem was it only stuck on about a half hour. I am not going to give up I am trying to figure out a way to apply a sticky surface that will to last longer . I have found some double sided tape by scotch tape. We will see.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flair Strips Really Work I began using Flair strips last year while doing marathon with my horse in combined driving events. She has always been a pant-er and as we have moved up the levels it has been disconcerting to be scrutinized during vet check for this problem. I wasn't sure whether the flair strips worked, or whether they made me feel better until I forgot to bring them to an event. My horse came in with the worst respiration rate of all the events that season. I make sure to have an extra on hand in the truck now! The only problem is you occassionally run across one that doesn't want to stick. I try to keep only a couple on hand at a time and also keep them in the house where the temperature is more stable. This seems to help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I ordered the Flair Nasal Strip for a long-format training three day, and I was pleased with the product. It was easy to put on, and it remained in the same place for the entire endurance phase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read the instructions I used this at my last event but didn't read the instructions properly as it states to put it on 30mins before exercising. I only put it on a couple of minutes before riding him and it didn't stick all that well. I am going to buy another one for the next event, will apply it properly and I'm sure it will do the trick.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't be racing without! I barrel race professionally and have used these in the past. I ran out and didn't reorder for awhile. My horse was running good but not really clocking like he should. I placed another order and he has been placing and winning wherever we go. We won't be without them now!!
