What inspired the Muzzle Net for Micklem® Bridles for horses?
Timmy, Cause for Optimism, is the inspiration behind the nose net, and in fact this is the very product that started Equilibrium Products and our mission of helping to improve horse’s wellbeing across the world! Timmy started headshaking as a youngster completely out of the blue. He would violently toss his head, strike out at his nose, rear up and constantly snort. Through many sleepless nights and trial and error, Margaret, his owner, came up with a solution to help him. She didn’t realise that by helping him, she would be helping so many other horses too!
What is the Net Relief Muzzle Net?
Unlike traditional nets that cover the whole muzzle, the Net Relief Muzzle Net’s contoured, shaped design covers only the top half of the muzzle. Once in place, it is unobtrusive, allows saliva to escape from the mouth freely and does not interfere with the horses breathing. It can always remain on the bridle and places no restriction on the type of bit or noseband used.
The results of ‘Net Relief’ in Clinical Trials at De Montfort University in the UK were outstanding:
- 79% of the animals experienced an improvement in symptoms
- 84% of respondents said Net Relief was easy to use.
- 88% of respondents said Net Relief had an attractive appearance on the horse.
What is the material used within this nose net for horses?
The Muzzle Net is designed to have a rough, but comfortable, thin mesh, which is contoured. The reason for the roughness, is that it theoretically provides relief by gently ‘scratching’ the horse’s nose. It is also the reason that 3 nets are included in your purchased pack, so that once the roughness has worn away, you can replace it with a new net. It also means the nosenet needs to sit close to your horse’s muzzle. For this reason, the mesh is designed to be able to cut to length, so you can get the perfect fit and best effect for your horse.
Who is this Nosenet for?
While anyone can use the Muzzle Net, it is specifically designed for:
- Horses who are sensitive to wind, pollen and flies.
- Horses who toss or shake their head when ridden.
How do I care for the Net Relief Muzzle Net?
To clean the Muzzle Net, we recommend that you just rinse it gently in cold water. Do not wring or spin the material.

**Always check the relevant rule book for the most recent guidelines.
Yes although it is important to read your rule book on applying to the use of nose nets for each organisation to ensure you are clear.
No, it would be impossible to screen out pollen without greatly restricting the amount of air the horse can breathe. This makes Net Relief Muzzle Net suitable for use by competition horses who have to exert themselves in order to perform.
The success of half nets suggests that they do not actively filter out pollens, the holes are just to big. They may work by distorting the airflow through the nose, or distract/comfort the horse.
Horses who shake their heads can be very sensitive around the muzzle area. The net acts as a security blanket, and the horse seems to be more comfortable with it on.
