Before You Order: Measure your Horse/Pony/Mini
For your own safety and successful use of your Unicorn Browband™, you need to order a browband in the correct size for your horse, pony, or mini. A Unicorn Browband™ that is too tight will annoy your horse and affect the function of your bridle. A unicorn browband that is too loose cannot stay upright and may even slide down over your horse or pony’s eyes which is very unsafe.
There are two easy way to determine your horse’s correct browband size:
Measure a browband from a bridle that you know fits your horse perfectly, or
Measure across your horse’s forehead while he/she is wearing the bridle you intend to use with the Unicorn Browband™.
Do not just order the largest size available to avoid measuring. If you put a horse-sized browband on a pony or a pony sized one on a mini, you will end up with a horn that tips over onto the face, which is not only unattractive but dangerous but can easily be avoided by taking a few minutes to determine the size you need.
Since we started making Unicorn horns in 2005, we have received many requests for resin (plastic) horns because people think it is more realistic or durable. We do not like to make plastic horns as it is generally dangerous to put a hard, solid horn on the head a 400-2,000-lb. animal. As for durability, a plastic object is as likely to break in a serious accident as leather and may splinter into dangerous shards which can harm both people and horses. Should a horse be involved in a collision, there is also a risk of a resin horn being driven backwards into the horses forehead or eyes. No matter how docile a horse or pony is, it can still spook or get involved in an accident.
While leather is not completely soft, it is much softer than plastic. Should a horse fall or collide with an object, person, or another horse, a leather horn is incapable of impaling a horse or human and will bend under relatively little pressure. You should also choose a leather unicorn horn over a resin one if participating in activities where you have a high risk of being thrown over your horse’s head (e.g. jumping or running downhill) or if you plan to ride in a group or take your unicorn into public places.
While a leather horn may not impale a person or animal, precautions still need to be taken to ensure the safety of all people and animals affected by your use of a unicorn horn.
Leather horns and browbands are intended for moderately experienced equestrians.
Leather horns are not recommended for use by pony parties or inexperienced equestrians. We recommend purchasing one of our other softer horns instead.
Depending on the horse/pony’s size, your horn size, and person’s height, the tip of the horn may be at face- or eye-level when the animal’s head is in its normal resting position. Take this into consideration when buying a horn and choose a horn height that you feel will be safest for your situation.
A leather horn can still cause injury by a direct poke in the eye, so you must instruct others to keep their faces a safe distance from the horse/pony’s face.
It is your responsibility to maintain your leather browband as you would any other leather tack and equipment.
Never tie your horse or leave it unattended when wearing a unicorn horn as the horn can be damaged by a horse rubbing or bumping its head into objects, tie rails, and cross-tie ropes.
You are solely responsible for the safety of all animals and people associated with your use of this product.
FedEx Shipping Only
Each leather Unicorn Browband™ takes several days to craft by hand and will therefore be shipped via FedEx instead of the postal service, so please make sure you provide an address deliverable by FedEx. If you are not offered FedEx options on the checkout page, please check first that your address is a FedEx eligible address and feel free to contact us for assistance. Some orders may require a signature depending upon the order value and/or address type. After you receive your shipping notification, we recommend checking the tracking page on the FedEx website to see your estimated delivery date and if a signature will be required so you can plan ahead.
A Note on Photos & Handmade Items
Every attempt is made to describe and depict items accurately, but due to the individuality of handcrafted items, no two items are identical. Listing photos for a particular design (e.g. color combinations and trims) may be used for more items of the same design; however, there may be slight variations in the item shipped due to the fact that each browband is hand-cut, -stitched, and -finished on a one-by-one basis.
Please note that dye lots can vary slightly from item to item, and your device’s screen brightness/contrast/saturation/warmth/”Eye Comfort” settings may also cause colors to appear different from the actual color of the item.
Please also note that browband-to-horn proportions may differ slightly from photo to item as photos represent particular design schemes and not necessarily sizes. The same photo(s) of a particular design may be made to fit different sizes of horses and ponies with varying horn heights and browband lengths, so please make sure you read all item specs rather than just relying on photos to determine the actual size of the item you are purchasing.
