Ear plugs are used to muffle background noises during racing or training. In many cases, highly strung horses perform better and are easier to control if they are able to concentrate on their job rather than what is going on around them. The plug sits in the horse's ear and is attached to the bridle using the small snap hooks. Also included is a pull cord that runs back to the sulky. This enables the driver to pull the plugs out if required during the race. This model is made from memory foam rubber. This moulds to the shape of the ear, and has the ability to block out more noise than other materials.
Memory Foam Rubber with Black Cord Coloured cords are a safety requirement for harness racing in many countries. Please check with local authorities for rulings in your area.
