Far Infrared Technology
A naturalistic ceramic infused lining that emits a safe form of Far Infrared radiation, also known as Biogenetic Radiation, to the horse’s body, this is then reflected from the horse’s body creating a natural black body effect. Far Infrared radiation is a natural process and is scientifically proven to gently and safely assist blood circulation. Helping to support healthy joints, soft tissue, maintain healthy blood flow, ease muscle tension, support recovery and aid in helping keep structures and functions sound.

*A black body is an object or organism (in this case the horse) that absorbs all FIR radiation that is placed upon it, (in this case the Far Infrared Radiating ceramics infused into the lining of the Protechmasta Poll Guard.) It then reflects this radiation back at the same frequency that has been generated by the initiating blackbody the horse *

Key Features

  • Ceramic infused lining
  • Breathable airmesh outer
  • Hook and loop fastening
  • Offers protection, comfort and distribution of pressure
  • Sits neatly under bridle or headcollar
  • Use all year round

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the standard and competition poll guard?
Both Protechmasta poll guards work to help relieve muscle tension and sensitivity behind the ears and over the poll area whilst also providing extra padding under the bridle/headcollar. The competition poll guard is discreet in appearance designed to sit neatly under a bridle. The standard poll pad is ergonomic in design covering between the ears and at the base of the skull.

Will the poll guard fit my bridle with a wide headpiece/comfort style?
The Poll guard has been designed to fit most conventional headpieces. The adjustable fastenings will adjust to 6.5cm wide at the widest point, please measure the width of your headpiece to check it will fit if you are unsure.

Will the Protechmasta poll guard help with headshaking?
We have had many reviews from our customers who have said the Protechmasta poll pad and fly veil products have helped with head shaking.

Instant positive result from our mare who had held tension in poll and jaw despite padded headpiece. This has made a significant difference and am thrilled - Much happier and relaxed horse who takes the contact now more readily. Only hiccup came schooling when it was hot and she didn’t like having it then and shook her head...maybe something to just bear in mind in heat. Otherwise great product.

Love this poll guard! My horse headshakes a lot and it’s helped to calm her when she gets stressed.

Couldn't live without this product now. I have a mare who can headshake when she gets excited or frustrated and since using the poll guard she has become so much more chilled out when I'm riding, we both absolutely love it!

Absolutely amazing product, my usually extremely tense and stressy mare has become so much more relaxed and focused after just a week of using this poll pad. Could not recommend this enough for any horse of any age even just for use in the stable.

The infrared poll guard completley felt like it focussed my horse, she worked better in an outline and her ears were very relaxed. A definite improvement for my girl. Loving the protechmaster range.

This has made a real difference to my horse. She was very tight through her neck before using it. The knotted muscles at poll and in front of her withers have eased off considerably.

Teresa C

Fits easily. My horse seemed to relax immediately it was fitted. He has been a headshaker during spring and summer for the past 3 years - appearing yo get worse each year. He has also appeared tight through the poll for as long as I've owned him. Headshakingg was significantly reduced during lungeing and riding whilst he was wearing the poll guard. Although this may possibly be a coincidence - I am very pleased with the product.

Early days but our mare seems to like the addition of the pole guard. She is very sensitive in her pole so we are hoping this provides some comfort and improvement. Excellent service as always from Harry Hall, super quick delivery too.

Have the rug already so the poll guard is another great idea especially as my TB is currently getting a bit tight near the poll. Good quality and hoping it works as well as the rug.

Leah C

Well made, quality item, easy to use. One of my mini ponies has an old neck injury and this is helping with stiffness, along with his usual massages. He also seems more relaxed since wearing this a few hours a day.

After having 10 months of back problems, feel this item should be used with the saddle pad or rug as I’m sure my horse is definitely benefiting from these items, thanks.

I bought this as my horse has poll issues and throws his head around especially when doing circling work in the school. It seemed a reasonable price and had good reviews so I thought it was worth a try. So far so good as I have noticed much less head throwing. Hoping this continues.

Hi I got this to try for my TB/WB mare who is quite anxious. She is green and I am bringing her back into work. I bought the cob size as she has a fine small head. It fits great and I do think she has been better with less signs of evasion around the head and neck areas and appearing more relaxed.

I use this with the rug for travelling my horse as he can get upset when travelling. Using this before and during travelling keeps him calm and relaxed. I also use this for ridden work. He has quite a high head carraige and can be easily distracted being a stallion. When he has this on, he softens and lowers much easier and quicker along with being more focused on his job.

Only used a couple of times so far, however I’m really impressed, the head tossing appears to have stopped and my horse isn’t snatching the reins out of my hands as much. Long may it continue!

My horse has always done a bit of head shaking when turning for home. I wasn’t sure if this would work, but being a Harry hall club member with the money off, I thought it was worth a try. One word AMAZING!! First time on and only 4 tiny nods, 2nd time even better. Great product.

Amazing, my mare felt very relaxed and a different horse. On flat work, her stride felt so much longer, and she had more bend. I'm thinking of buying another for my little mare, who just hacks out on a lead reign, mainly for comfort, and to help her relax.

Guest

Verified Buyer: yes

I bought this for my high energy show jumper who generally works very upright and is quite busy. Within 10 minutes of putting it on him he had gone to sleep. I competed on the weekend and it definitely seemed to make a difference in the ring. I'm not sure what it does or how but he jumped well and seemed more relaxed in the ring.

WOW! Only used this the once so far to travel my daughters 'highly strung T/B' eventer the BE100 at Stratford Hill (June 16 2018). Normally he is difficult to get on but to our utter amazement she was able to get on straight away, he stood still and did not walk around and around the mounting block like he usually does and he did not try to tank off before she was fully on board! He is always very tense in Dressage but this time was much more relaxed so hoping for better scores in the future! The only change to our normal routine was wearing the Protechmasta Poll Guard on the 1 hour and 45 mins journey to the event. Very excited to be using this product and seeing our much loved boy a lot calmer and less stressed! Will update our progress as the season develops! A big thanks to Masta for developing this wonderful, natural product and to Harry Hall One Club for offering at such a fantastic price!

Verified Buyer: yes

What sorcery is this?! Amazed at how quickly it worked with my rather highly strung TB ex racehorse, who is known to suffer from a lot of tension thru his poll. He relaxed literally within minutes of my putting it on him, even happily allowing me to touch the top of his neck (normally a definite no no!) After moving yards recently, he was very unsettled when in his stable, and would box walk constantly. Since i started using the poll guard, he has begun to lay down in his stable, and be generally more settled. Can't recommend highly enough!

Nikki S

I have only used this once so far but I purchased it after having success with the protechmasta fly veil. So far he seems much calmer and more comfortable

I have only been using the Protechmaster poll guard for a couple of days, but I have seen a tremendous improvement in my pony. He has been diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia which is such a debilitating condition, but he seems very very happy working whilst using the protechmasta poll guard. I will post a comparison video in a few days.

Use it under the bridle for daily work. Does seem to have had a positive affect on relaxation through the pole. Would love to see a competition legal one that fits a Fairfax bridle.
