View Full Version : Magnetic Bridle Head-Piece
19th Nov 2005, 12:18 PM
Has anyone ever used one of the magnetic head-pieces? I know Barnsby do one but have not been able to get hold of one.
I've heard that they are good for stressy/nervous/over excited horses and help to relax them.
I'd be interested in hearing your experience/opinions of these and also if anyone knows where I can get hold of one (I've tried all the stockists on the Barnsby website)

I have used both the armadillo rug, and magnetic stable boots.
The rug seemed to give my horse diarrhoea, and the boots made her legs swell to the extent she was unrideable.
Now, I used both these as precautionary items, as she is a fit 7 year old. So, she may not have needed them. But my experience of them isnt great. But I know others who have used them with success.
Dont know much about the head-piece. Can only assume, after the diarrhoea/leg probs. A frazzled brain can only be next.:D
Sorry I couldn't help more.:)

If you were suffering from depression or nervousness or overexcitability do you think that your doctor may prescribe a magnet to be worn around the top of your head:D It would be a great look for work.:D I am about to buy our elderly dog a magnetic collar to see what happens as they say I get all but £4.50 of my £30 back if it does'nt work. Will keep you posted on how it all goes.

Stirling Saddlery had them in stock about September when I was enquiring.
Also got a brown head piece from a stockists down south.
Only found out about the headpiece as they did not have the bridle in stock. Apparently there is about a months wait from when you order them.
Interested in what you say about the magnetic rugs as I was looking at getting them for Leckie if it is found that he has arthritis.

Barnsby had them at Your Horse Live, cant quite understand how they would work or if Magnets that close to the brain are a good idea tbh :o
Did fascinate me though, spent ages chatting to the guy about them.
I think you can get them direct from Barnsby but theyre about £65 !!
I googled it and lots of stockists came up, would be interested to hear if anyone has used one and found it to help

Lexter, i can highly recomend the equilibrium magnetic back pad. Tis about £80-90 but i find mine useful, the actual rugs are £200+ if you go for bioflow, or £100 for the royston one. I've also used the bioflow wraps and boots with success, they used to aid our pony's recovery from laminitis and bruising. I've never tried the head piece though.....
