Love this! Wish I had found it earlier! So soft and makes sense to have this on a horses poll where they are so sensitive!
This poll pad is working very well with a horse we have that can get excited or tense. I feel he also is looser in his neck and jaw, very happy with it.
So far it is working great.
They're too big for the bridle browbands. If I get them on the bridle then it makes the bridle too tight on the horses and there's no way to adjust browbands. Tried it on the poll and it really didn't seem to have any effect on the horse. I was so excited to get them. Very disappointed. May work for some but didn't work for my horses.
Hi Catherine! Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear of your disappointment. To see full affects, we recommend using the Poll Pad consistently for at least three weeks. The way you have chosen to use it (across the brow band) is excellent for anxious horses and for calming purposes as it targets the GV24 point—a natural calming acupressure point. Unfortunately, some bridles are built differently than others, so the fit may vary. Our recommendation would be to allow the ends of the Poll Pad to “hang off“ past the brow band which should allow the ends to sit just underneath the ears. That way, you will only have two pieces of Velcro on the brow band and it will not be quite so tightly fitting. Hopefully, this tip will help you find a better fit. Best to you and your horses! -The Benefab Team
I have poll pack, Smart poll pack, Smart Hood, Smart Scrim, I love them all. Very rarely use my BOT cooler.
