The Shakeaze muzzle guard was originally developed for headshaking which was triggered by wind.
Research has suggested that the behaviour is due to increased sensitivity in the trigeminal nerve which provides sensation to the upper face, nose and muzzle areas.
The Shakeaze is unique in the respect that it acts as a 'wind barrier', protecting the muzzle area from sensitivity caused by direct airflow.
Research by Professor Knottenbelt has also suggested airflow to be a potential trigger with horses demonstrating 'nostril clamping', in an attempt to close each nostril in turn as if trying to
prevent the intake and movement of air and possible associated pain.
This research, again, is the basis of our design!
