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'!).

    POMMS Premium Equine Ear Plugs is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 106.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great idea I bought these to try on my 2 horses that get a little anxious and pay to much attention to everything else around.
    Date published: 2016-08-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I recently bought these to use when I trailer my mare; our trailer is older and makes scary trailer noises when we pull it. I put these in her ears easily and there was no problem keeping them in and they were easy to take back out. She is generally somewhat nervous in the trailer, but with these in, she calmed down perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ear plugs ever! My horse hates wearing ear plugs, but needs them when showing. With his current ones, he shakes his head continually until they fall out, so I thought I'd give these a try. I'm so happy I did! The ear plugs are soft and roll into the ear easily. When pushed down to secure in the ear, they stay put...no matter how much shaking he does. They truely are the best ear plugs I've ever used!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love the PomPoms. What a great idea to make them round and spongey. They will fit in any size horse's ears and do a great job of reducing noise and stress.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy horse These really did the trick keeping our house calm and settled. They stay in his ear comfortably - he makes no attempt to shake them out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what my mare needed! I bought this a month ago and my mare has been so much happier! She was very anxious and hyper sensitive and after a few days of getting used to them, she has calmed down and is able to focus more on our ride instead of the voices that talk to her. Love this product!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Loved the idea of muffling sound for my spooky Arabian. Unfortunately they kept falling out and my horse was frustrated.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pomms They worked great. Used them at the AQHA Level 1 Championships.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny. These ear plugs made my mare go from anxious, worried, and jumpy to QUIET, calm, and focused. They are expensive for little foam balls, but I would have gladly paid triple the price for the incredible benefit they give to my horse. They are now a must-have for windy days, trail rides, etc. The ear plugs stay in the ears well and don't seem to bother my mare. She can still hear me easily, but she is no longer bothered by trucks zooming by on the road or the "monster" noises in the woods. These ear plugs make her safer and much more fun to ride!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this product I bought this product a month ago. My horse was always spooking at things that he heard at shows. When I used POMS all of that behavior changed! I HIGHLY recommend this product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stay in place Stay on place and do as advertised. Muffle distracting sounds which is helpful for my horse in the show pen. Only gave a 4 star rating because they can cause irritation to the skin in the ears if left in for long periods of time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product These seem to stay in place better than another brand I've used. I also like that SmartPak labeled the container with my name so I don't have to! I haven't had a need to use these very much yet.
    Date published: 2015-12-15
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not great These are super small, and impossible to get in and out of a horse (unless you happen to have a horse that really doesn't care about sticking stuff in their ears) my friend says she's somehow attached a string to it to make it easier but I'm sticking to the fluffy ones which are a lot easier to put in and out and are cheaper.
    Date published: 2015-11-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Woooooo They're great: they don't come out and my horse eats better on trips with them in. Colour choices would be great for when you don't show with ear net on

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great earplugs We bought a pair last year after 4th of July fireworks and really did not get to test them out until this year. Normally we have to give our mare a mild sedative as she gets extremely stressed from fireworks. This year using the POMMS equine ear plugs she was great, no sedatives and very calm in her stall. Thanks!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Near Perfection These ear plugs are great, they don't come out easily, no matter how hard/ how much my horse shakes his head about. The only issues are that they are easily seen if your horse has non hairy ears. Its not bad though, I would certainly buy another pair if I needed it.
    Date published: 2015-07-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked wonders for my excitable mare! I bought this product after realizing that my horse was very sensitive to loud speakers at shows. I tried using these at our home barn first, and she was good(was hard to tell what a show would be like because we don't have loud speakers), but we got to the show, and they were amazing! She was a little irritated when I first put them in, but she settled very quickly. Wonderful product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great earplugs! Just purchased these, after trying both Pom Pom type plugs and smooth rubber ones. Much prefer these--very secure, block out just enough noise, easy to remove as well. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need Different Colors Works as advertised, but really should be black or brown, not gray. They are a little too obvious in that color.
    Date published: 2015-06-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use These are easy to put in and don't seem to bother my mare. Big enough for her big Percheron ears, and seem as though they will last a while.
    Date published: 2015-06-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful training/showing aid Pomms are excellent for use in horses that get spooked or distracted easily. Obviously they are not a "substitute" for training and desensitization, they are only an aid, but they are super handy in the right situation. We typically use them only in the show pen, on horses that are particularly anxious or easily distracted by noises. Our horses tolerate them well and they always stay in place.
    Date published: 2015-05-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ear Plugs I ride at a big show barn where everyone uses ear plugs, and these are what everyone uses. I've tried the fluffy kind and the round black balls and neither stayed in anywhere near as well as these. They've literally never popped out of my horse's ears. One time I even forgot to take them out and turned her out with them still in (best horse owner of the year award certainly isn't going to me) and they were both still there the next day. They are ridiculously expensive for little foam balls, but they're the best product out there and they last forever so I'm willing to spend the extra couple bucks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from POMMES ear plugs We have had the ear plugs for a week or so and have used them on three mares. All showed marked improvement in focus ... we think they are great.!!!!! So glad that someone recommended their use.
    Date published: 2015-05-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! these ear plugs are a MUST HAVE in your grooming kit, they're in a compact package and always good to have on hand. these have worked miracles with my spooking gelding and they don't fall out!
    Date published: 2015-03-03
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saved my life. These have really, really saved me. The echo in the indoor has had me dealing with a spooky, unfocused gelding all throughout the winter months which left me fearful of even passing poles and standards, let along actually going OVER them. I finally buckled down and bought the plugs without high expectations. I got my horse back! No spooking, even when I get my foot caught in the gate and spray deep footing. Nothing. He is focused, relaxed, and SOOOO ready to jump those scary blue poles! I can safely ride my horse again without random spooking and fighting to get his attention. My only complaint; it pulls his ear hairs when I pull them out. He is perfect with them in, no head shaking, I think hes actually really happy with them in, but when its time to take them out, it definitely is a challenge. I'm sure he'd be fine if he didn't have any hair, but I am hesitant because he does not keep fly masks which cover his ears. Overall; life saving product.
