Product Description

Turn your horse into a Unicorn™ with Wishpony’s Baroque Unicorn Horn™ Browband for horses and ponies. The Baroque Unicorn Horn™ is our newest design which has a more robust shape which would complement the physique of heavier breeds such as Friesians, Highland Ponies, Gypsy Horses, etc. This quality felt browband is reinforced for durability and professionally stitched with no flimsy or floppy edges like those offered by our imitators.

Our Unicorn Browbands™ have been successfully used for parades, shows, parties, and jumping.

Child- and Horse-Safe Unicorn Horn

We have spent years developing and improving our technique so that you can have a realistic Unicorn without comprising the safety of children and animals.

Our new contoured Unicorn horn is also soft and safe for use around children, as with the Classic Unicorn Horn. Whether you are hosting a pony party, driving a Unicorn-draw carriage about town, riding in a parade, or just entering a costume class, you can rest assured that your Unicorn will not accidentally injure a child, spectator, or another animal.

The Unicorn Browband™ looks best when it is tailored to your horse or pony’s size and worn without your bridle’s browband so we recommend removing your browband, but we offer a Velcro closure option that allows you to put on your Unicorn Browband™ in under 30 seconds.

For your safety, please measure your horse or pony’s current browband to and from the ends of the loops.

Which Unicorn Horns are safe for use around Children?

Wishpony.com specializes in soft unicorn horns that are safe for children and other people to pet or ride your unicorn horse or pony. With the exception of Rigid Horns designed exclusively for profesional adult equestrians, all our products are safe for use by children or on ponies who interact with children.

Here is a complete list of our Child-Safe Unicorn Products:

However, it is your responsibility to order the right size, put on the product correctly, always supervise children and horses, and follow all standard safety rules. A soft horn does not change the normal risks assumed when working or playing with horses and ponies.

What’s the Difference Between a Natural-Look Unicorn Horn and a Unicorn Browband™?

The Unicorn Browband™ is a Unicorn horn that comes on a browband in your choice of color and material. A Unicorn Browband™ is the most stable unicorn horn and suitable for active use such as trotting, cantering, galloping, jumping, rearing, etc.

The Natural-Look Unicorn Horn™ comes on discreet straps to appear as if the horn grows out from your horse’s forehead. A full forelock helps to perfect the illusion. The Natural Look Unicorn Horn™ is intended only for calm activity such as photography, parades, walking, and pony rides.

If your horse or pony tends to bob or shake its head when walking, a Unicorn Browband™ may also be better suited for it. Choose a browband color that matches your bridle or halter for the most realistic appearance.

Is there a browband on a Natural-Look Unicorn Horn™?

No. As the name suggests, the Natural-Look Unicorn Horn™ is intended to look natural and therefore comes with discreet attachments instead of a browband.

What’s the difference between a Classic, Contoured & Baroque Unicorn Horn

We are constantly developing our designs and now offer 3 styles of Unicorn Horns for horses and ponies.

  • The Classic Unicorn Horn™ (developed in 2005) is a conservative design resembling depictions of Unicorns in early art and medieval tapestries.
  • The Contoured Unicorn Horn™ (introduced in 2013) is a more romantic 3-dimensional horn resembling a spiraled seashell.  Both styles have been very popular over the years, and we have found the contoured style favored by professional photographers.
  • The Baroque Unicorn™ (New!), while it can be worn by any breed, was designed for robust horses and ponies or those with large heads – e.g. Friesian, Gypsy Vanner, Andalusian, Lusitano, Highland Pony, Percheron, and any muscular or stout horse/pony.

Wishpony Unicorn Horns

Which Unicorn horn product should I buy?

We make several different styles of Unicorn products for varying purposes.

The Natural-Look Unicorn Horn™ is our most popular product as it comes with discreet attachments that make it look as as if the Unicorn horn grows out of the horse or pony’s forehead. This product is the top choice for pony parties and professional photographers as well as parents buying horns for costume classes and birthday parties. Please note that this product is intended for light activity such as standing still for portraits or slow walking. If you plan to run or jump, then please purchase a Unicron Browband™. If your horse or pony bobs its head quite vigorously when walking briskly or has a tendency to shake its head a lot, we recommend going with a Unicorn Browband™.

The Unicorn Browband™ was our original Unicorn product first launched in 2005. Unicorn Browbands can be made in a number of colors to match your horse’s coloring, bridle, or your costume, depending on the look you wish to achieve. If you wish for the browband to be as discreet as possible, we recommend ordering a Unicorn Browband™ that matches the color of your halter or bridle.

The Unbridled Unicorn Horn™ was also designed for photography without a halter or bridle. This item attaches to the horse or pony’s forelock using a discreet hair clip. Please note that this item is intended for use with the horse standing still for a photo, and not for riding, doing tricks, or anything athletic.

I am a photographer. Which Unicorn horn should I order?

Our Natural-Look Unicorn Horn™ does not come on a browband but instead has thinner straps designed for a “natural” appearance. The Natural-Look  attachments are virtually invisible on a light colored horse and barely visible dark horses viewed from a distance. The Unbridled Unicorn Horn™ was also designed for photography as the attachments are invisible.

If photographing horses performing athletic activity (running, jumping, rearing), you should use the more stable The Unicorn Browband™.

For professional photography and portraits, we highly recommend ordering a Contoured Natural-Look Unicorn Horn™.

What Color Horn and/or Browband Should I Order?

We offer many colors of horns and browbands (if applicable) so you can personalize your Unicorn Horn to suit your horse’s coloring or personality, match your tack or costume, or just to be different.

You might think some of the unicorn horn colors we offer are outlandish and “un-unicorn-like”, but no one can say what color horns “real” unicorns are supposed to. As children, we loved playing with and watching My Little Ponies, which had a big influence on our horse craziness and started us on this career of costuming for horses and ponies (you can read more on our About Us page) and we therefore offer horns in all colors of the rainbow as tribute to our childhood playmates.

Whether you are dressing your horse or pony as a My Little Pony or as a “real” unicorn, below are some recommendations on color choices for the effect you are trying to achieve with your Unicorn horns for horses and ponies.

For the Most Natural and Realistic Unicorn Appearance

Horn Color

If you want your Unicorn to look as realistic as possible, choose a horn color that complements your horse’s coloring. Below are a few examples:

  • Ivory Horn – This is the most natural color for all colors of horses
  • Champagne/Pale Gold – Good for white, ivory, cream, and other gold-toned horses  – e.g. Cremello, Palomino, Bucksin, Dun, etc.
  • Gold Horn – A classic look that will look good on pretty much any horse.
  • Yellow Gold Horn – Good for white and yellow-toned shades of coats.
  • Dark/Antique Gold – Good for white, yellow-toned, and brown horses.
  • Pink/Dusty Rose Horn – Good for pale horses including white, cream, and gray, especially those with visible pink skin.
  • Sky Blue Horn – Good for white and gray horses and ponies.
  • Purple Horn – Good for white, gray, and black horses.
  • Brown Horn – Good for dark brown horses, especially if they do not have white markings
  • Silver/Gray Horn – Good for white and gray horses or horses with a lot of gray points
  • Black Horn – For black horses or dark horses with black points or visible dark skin on the muzzle/ears.

Tip: If using colorful horns, you can accessorize your horse with mane extensions and ribbons to add more color to balance out your ensemble.

Browband Color

If ordering a Unicorn Browband™ instead of a Natural-Look Unicorn Horn™, we recommend ordering a browband color closest to your halter or bridle color. We offer an array of colors to match the many nylon halter and bridle colors popular in the market.

Some customers like to order a browband to match the horse’s coat, but a browband loop that doesn’t match your bridle/halter makes the effect very costumey. When your unicorn browband is the same color as your horse’s tack (and the horn matches your horse’s coat/markings) it looks as if you procured a special browband with a hole to accommodate your unicorn’s own horn.

 

What size should I order?

Due to the wide range of sizes from Miniature to draft horses, you will need to measure your horse or pony to determine the correct size to order.

If you need a browband measurement, please measure the browband from a bridle that fits your horse/pony to and from the ends of the loops.

If ordering for use with a halter, please measure across the horse/pony’s forehead to and from the lower edge of the crownpiece.

If you do not have access to the animal, please consider asking its owner for the measurements. If they cannot help you, we may be able to help you determine the correct item or size to order if you can provide us breed and/or height information.

The Natural-Look Unicorn Horn™ is adjustable in fit, so it is a good choice when you don’t know the horse or pony’s size.

On Horn Sizing

Horn height is really a matter of taste. Unicorns have been depicted with a variety of horn sizes throughout history, so you should select a horn size that you personally think is realistic. It is our personal opinion that small horns are cute, but larger horns are more impressives. If you cannot decide, try holding a ruler (slowly and carefully) against your horse’s head to see which heigh best suits its head size.

We recommend the following minimum horn sizes for best results. When in doubt, taller is better than too short.

  • Miniature Horse: 5.5″ and up
  • Small Pony: 7″ and up
  • Pony: 9″ and up
  • Horse: 12″ and up
  • Large Horse: 15″ and up
  • Draft Horse: 18″

Browband Sizes

Following are average browband sizes for various horse types. While Natural-Look Unicorn Horns™ can be adjusted a couple of inches, we do recommend that you measure your horse or pony or its current browband to ensure best possible fit.

  • Miniature Horse – Small Pony: 12 in.
  • Pony: 13 in.
  • Large pony: 14 in.
  • Cob or Small Horse: 15 in.
  • Average Horse: 16 in.
  • Large Horse: 17 in.
  • Draft Horse: 18 – 22 in.

Can I use a Unicorn horn on a foal?

We have had a few inquiries about Unicorn Horns for newborn foals. Please note that a foal must be halter broken to wear a unicorn horn. We do not recommend putting costumes on young foals unless they can be calmly led and restrained with a halter and have completely docile personalities. If you think your foal may be spooked or upset by the experience, wait until it has more training and experience before dressing up as a unicorn.

If you are ordering a Unicorn horn for a foal or immature horse, always order a child-safe Unicorn horn such as the Contoured Natural-Look Unicorn Horn™ and never order a rigid horn as you cannot predict how a green horse may behave.

Don’t be fooled by imitation Unicorn browbands

We debuted the first ever Unicorn Browband™ in 2005 and have continuously developed and improved it over the past decade. While the competition’s Unicorn “browband” is just a strip of fabric, WishPony.com’s Unicorn Browband™ is a fully reinforced and professionally stitched for appearance and durability. Well cared for, your Wishpony Unicorn Browband™ will bring you years of enjoyment.
