A Poll Guard, quite simply, protects the horses poll area. Located between the horse’s ears, the poll is the bony point where the spinal cord attaches to the skull.

It is a particularly sensitive area and is susceptible to injury, particularly when the horse is in a confined area with limited headroom, such as whilst travelling.

If enough pressure is applied, an injury to the poll can be very serious.

Unfortunately, more often than not, the use of poll guards isn’t considered until the horse has already been injured – we hope to change that.

Made from thermoformed EVA padding, Woof Wear’s ergonomically designed, and close fitting Poll Guard give high levels of protection to the delicate poll area.
