Official description

The WeatherBeeta Prime ear bonnet is a crochet ear bonnet with high density cotton drill ears for noise reduction.

First impressions

We tried the bright turquoise, which had a love/hate reaction among everyone on the yard.

Overview of performance

It fitted well and we liked the softer material for the ears.

Tamsin’s likes and dislikes

These ears were more “scalloped” in shape than others in the group test — they were a bit too loose on some horses, while they fitted others really well. The horses found them comfortable and they did seem to reduce noise.

Verdict

*BEST VALUE* A really good value fly bonnet that does what it says on the tin.
