Fenwick Equestrian has created the first "drug-free" therapeutic head mask or "Happy Hat" using our innovative Liquid Titanium fabric. Through our extensive testing, we have discovered that the use of this high performance fabric in a head or ear covering has produced a calming effect on many horses.
Liquid titanium produces Negative Ions which have been proven to make us feel better by providing us with more energy and a positive mood. Think of when you are at the beach and the air smells so clean, or after a rain shower and everything seems so fresh. This gives you an idea of what negative ions can do for you. Then, think of how you feel being in a centrally heated or air-conditioned office all day, every day. You can't wait to get outdoors and breathe fresh air! A horse living in a stall in a city is like us being in an office all day and night. Statistics have proven that when ionic air purifiers are used in offices, people's performance is 25% higher. We can only absorb 15% through breathing, but by using the skin to absorb negative ions, we can absorb up to 100%.
Liquid titanium also produces Far Infrared Rays (FIR) which is a light energy and is considered essential to our well being and health. According to NASA, infrared stimulation is an ideal way to maintain cardiovascular stimulation. The energy is easily absorbed by the body through "resonance absorption", which is a "vibration" of our cells and FIR rays at the same frequency. Once these rays penetrate our body they activate the molecules and body cells thus producing a varying degree of warmth. Once the blood flow is improved the rest of our body can begin to heal itself. It is like a domino effect. Everything begins to function properly.
Liquid titanium is baked into our specially designed fabric at a very high temperature, allowing one to continually wash and dry the product without diluting the qualities. This performance fabric functions equally as well on a wet horse as a dry horse. Also, there is no limit to the length of time one can leave the mask on the horse. During the testing stage of this product, the mask was successfully left on horses overnight with excellent results.
Fenwick has now designed Liquid Titanium Ear Covers with the same techincal qualities as our sheet and mask. The Ear Covers are a wonderful tool for schooling the performance horse who needs to calm down a bit and focus. It fits nicely under the bridle and is a breathable, moisture wicking fabric, so your horse will not sweat.
"A relaxed and focused horse performs better!"
Liquid Titanium Fabric Qualities:
Far Infrared Rays (FIR) and Negative Ions can provide the following positive effects on the body:

- Increases H2O hydration which improves blood circulation & increased oxygen in the blood provides more energy.
- Increases metabolism.
- Increases the production of nitric oxide which is a key component of a healthy immune system.
- Reduces the acidity in our bodies
- Helps flush toxic substances from the body and reduces lactic acid buildup.
- Reduces aches, pains and joint stiffness and relieves muscle spasms.
- Reduces pain associated with arthritis.
- Can reduce inflammatory skin conditions.
- can reduce anxiety.
- Can relieve stress, which can reduce the chance of ulcers.
- Induces alpha brain waves and stabilizes seratonin levels which can create a calming effect.
- Increases awareness and helps your horse focus in a positive way.

This "drug-free" breathable, fast wicking, 4-way stretch fabric makes our mask and ear covers very comfortable for your horse while schooling or competing, while in a stall or turned out in a paddock or while travelling in your trailler. The mask can be worn 24/7, depending on your horse’s need.
Two of the primary technical qualities of Liquid Titanium are increased awareness and a reduction of nervousness and anxiety. Another very important advantage of our mask and ear covers are that they are a "drug free" product. A drugged horse does not remember what you tried to teach him when he was out of it. The products machine washable, so they are reusable.
Anyone who has ever been around horses will know that not everything works on every horse, but we are very confident in our Liquid Titanium products. We have had more success stories than not. We are hearing every day from people as to what they are using the mask for... stall walkers and weavers, horses who don't like going on a trailer or in a starting gate, horses who don't like shots and horses that are confined to a stall.
The length of time for one to see the effectiveness of the mask will vary from horse to horse. We have seem immediate results and it has taken as long as a week to have an obvious effect. It does appear that the younger the horse the quicker it works. We have had horses who have gotten better and no longer require the mask and others who seem to do better wearing it 24/7. We look forward to hearing about the success you have using our product on your horse. Good luck!
