I'm delighted with this ear net, which I use for showing in dressage. This ear net is well-designed - a nice combination of stylish and practical. It is sturdily built, with thinner airflow mesh in strategic places. I prefer the silver braiding over blingier ear nets - less pieces to go missing. I was concerned that the ears are not as stretchy as some, but it fits my 16.1 hh QH cross perfectly. It might not work as well for larger warmbloods.
