Hello Guardian people!
Thank you so much for a great product that has
definitely helped our horse, Trixie. We recently
acquired Trixie this spring for my daughter to ride and
show in 4-H. We noticed that one of her eyes was
slightly irritated, but didn't think too much of it
until it continued to worsen. At her previous owner's
home, she had a large dark barn to run in during the
day, but we only a 3-sided shed for her. When the vet
was called, she was immediately diagnosed with uveitis,
and we were told she would eventually go blind. We were
given cream to put in her eye and a pretty bleak
My daughter had already fallen in love with her, and we
didn't want to sell her. That's when I found out about
Guardian Mask by searching the Internet. I purchased one
as soon as possible, and it arrived the day before we
had planned a family vacation for a week. So we put the
new mask on, told our neighbor who would be watching the
horses to keep an eye on her and make sure Trixie kept
it on. When we got back a week later from vacation, the
first thing I did was check on Trixie. While the mask
was pretty dirty, her eye looked wonderful! There was no
draining and all the swelling had gone done.
When it came time to take her to 4-H clinics and show,
we made sure that it was OK with the judge that she wear
her special mask since our shows are outside in full
sun. Since Trixie wears her regular mask every day, we
ordered a riding mask so that it would look nice for the
show. The Guardian riding mask came a few days before
the show. Trixie has a small head, so it was a little
big. But we found that we could attach it in more than
one way because of the heavy-duty velcro flaps and it
still fit OK. Another thing was that the mask was almost
the same color as her face, so it blended right in!
Trixie and my daughter did great at the show. Trixie was
calm, well mannered, and listened to all her cues. She
ended up getting a Reserve Grand in Western Pleasure
I've attached some pics. One is of her eye when we first
got her and you can see how it is sore and draining. It
got worse than that before Guardian Mask made a
difference. The other two pictures are from the county
4-H fair. One with the riding mask over her show halter,
and the other is of her in the ring winning her class!
Thank you again for a great product! Trixie loves having
it on--she puts her head way down low when we put it on
in the morning after washing it for the night. She will
have to wear it for the rest of her life, but that's a
small price to pay for a healthy, seeing horse!
