The special airflow neoprene is breathable and offers protection, comfort and distribution of pressure, whilst airmesh wicks any moisture away fast and effectively. The easy to use fastenings ensure the poll pad sits neatly under bridle or headcollar and can be secured in place with the hook and loop fastenings.

Far Infrared Technology: A naturalistic ceramic infused lining that emits a safe form of Far Infrared radiation, also known as Biogenetic Radiation, to the horses’ body, this is then reflected back 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, therefore, helping to reduce any swelling, ease muscle tension and support recovery and help in the prevention of injury.

FAQs

I just bought the poll guard. Do you just turn out in it, put on in the stable or can you ride in it?
All of the above! It is useful to use on a headcollar (we suggest a breakaway headcollar for field and stable use for safety) to promote blood flow and warm up the muscles around the poll before exercise, but it's also great post exercise to flush through lactic acid and relieve tension.

Fits nicely under the bridle. Not sure if it works yet as horse is only a baby.

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!

georgina hemingway

Verified Buyer: yes

Excellent service and delivery, I honestly don't know how it works but what a difference it has made to my very tense mare even while she's just stood in stable, she's far more relaxed

Feppy Mitford-Slade

Verified Buyer: yes

Just started with these, however the more stressful of the two seems to be a little more chilled so keeping fingers crossed for an good ongoing result!

Karen Ross

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.

Nikki Byrne

Verified Buyer: yes

This has made a massive and amazing difference to my daughters pony!!!! He is so much more relaxed now when riding and to handle on the ground in his bridle with this on

Perfect fit and works amazingly on my horse who continually head shakes when ridden and stopped as soon as I used this 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.

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.

This is great, its taken all of the pressure of our horses poll, she is much more relaxed and is listening to us . Can't thank you enough and its just what her chiropractor recommend

Leann Farrant

First use today. My horse is normally forever scratching her head. First ride, out with this fitted and no scratching. Fingers crossed this has helped. Fits very well and looks smart.

Nice looking lightweight poll guard. Fits well on bridles and headcollars and stays in place. Works well on my anxious horse. Helps with headshaking.

Just love this range of products, the poll guard makes a big difference to my sensitive warmblood. He much calmer and more focused.

Good quality item. Used on head collar not used for riding yet therefore can’t comment on any benefits seen so far.

Lovely fit, yet to be impressed by the other reviews of easing tension but I do have a very busy youngster!

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 Stapleton

Verified Buyer: yes

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

Clare Hulme

Thought this product worked a dream with my youngster. She's stopped messing with her mouth now and seems more relaxed in her neck and head. Would recommend to anyone.

Sizing comes up big - ordered cob size and use on 14.2 native and 16.2 wb. I've not used it enough to comment on it's efficacy so hence 4 stars.

Good quality and as expected. Didn’t fit wide head pieces. Tried it on my head shaking horse as was advertised it would help but did not.

Guest

Verified Buyer: yes

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.

I purchased the poll guard for my hot sensitive dressage mare to make her less tense and more supple. The poll guard has worked wonders in the school and out hacking. I would definitely recommend this product.

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.
