If you are baffled by the many type of Unicorn horns available on Wishpony.com, read on to find out which one is best for you and your horse. Each type of our Unicorn products is intended for a specific range of activities, horses’ temperments, and users’ experience levels.
The Unicorn Browband
Best for: sports, kids, parties, everything under the sun
The Unicorn Browband, developed in 2005, is your best bet for a unicorn horn that can be used for all occasions and is safe for both kids and adults.
The horn on this browband comes in a dazzling range of color choices and even rainbow hues and different lengths from mini to draft and every size in between. The browband, which is available in colors to match your tack or your horse’s coat, will stay on securely even if your horse runs, jump, or rears. What’s more, the horn is soft so it will not hurt people or horses in accidents or collisions. For an all-around beautiful and easy-to-use unicorn horn, order a Unicorn Browband or Rainbow Unicorn Browband. This is the unicorn horn we recommend for pony parties as it is quite durable and easiest to put on.
If you are currently using a resin unicorn horn for kids and pony parties, we highly recommend switching to a unicorn browband as it is much safer and the horn will bend if your pony ever pokes a child in the face during petting, cuddling, and photo shoots.
The Natural-Look Unicorn Horn
Best for: photo shoots, mild or slow activity
The Natural-Look Unicorn Horn is our most popular product and was designed specifically for equine photography. This horn can be ordered in both solid colors and rainbows and come in lengths from 5″-12″. Though intended mainly for photo shoots, many customers use this horn for riding and pony parties due to the lower price and the appeal of near-invisible straps. Just remember that this horn is not meant for high levels of activity such as galloping and jumping. Misuse of the Natural-Look Horn in ways such as stretching the straps too hard or tying your pony with the horn on can result in breakages. It is also a little harder to put on than a Unicorn Browband, so if you run a pony party business or have trouble using small detailed items, we recommend that you use a Unicorn Browband instead of the Natural-Look Horn.
Leather Unicorn Browband
Best for: shows, parades, formal occasions, looking good everywhere you ride
The Leather Unicorn Browband, also called the Unicorn Show Browband, is the most luxurious version of the Unicorn Browband, With this product, you get the same stability and ease of use of the fabric Unicorn Browband in genuine leather that matches your leather bridles and halters that makes your costume look completely realistic. You even have option of ordering an entire Unicorn Bridle so that the browband matches the bridle perfectly. The horn can be made of real leather or more economical faux-leather and retains the safety feature of being able to bend in accidents and collisions to avoid injuring people or horses. If you want a formal unicorn turnout that doesn’t feel like a costume, the Leather Unicorn Browband is the product for you.
Resin & Plastic Unicorn Horns
Best for: shows, exhibitions, parades, films, experienced adult equestrians
At Wishpony.com we only recommend plastic unicorn horns for experienced adults or professional equestrians. We never recommend plastic horns for use around children or among the general public such as with city carriages or group rides. The reason for this is that a plastic horn can easily poke someone in the eye should the horse throw up his head in excitement or surprise. Horses driven or ridden side by side can also poke each others’ eyes with hard unicorn horns. And there is the extreme possibility of someone getting impaled by plastic horns during falls, collisions or accidents. We believe plastic horns should only be used by highly experienced adults for occasions such as riding exhibitions, parades (in single file), shows, film-making, photography (adults only), and other circumstances where your horse will not be in crowded places or offered to the public or kids for petting.
Wishpony.com resin horns are always set on sturdy hand-crafted leather browbands and will not swing up and down or sided to side like cheap resin horns sold elsewhere on elastic bands. If you are an experienced equestrian and you would like a realistic resin horn for your horse, please feel free to contact us by email with a custom request.
