Two Horse Enterprises’ Trail Bells are small Swiss bells that attach to a cinch, the edge of a stirrup or a chin strap. They alert other trail users and the area wildlife that a horse is approaching. Surprise is often what causes spooks, and with a bell, that spook can be avoided.
Trail Bells can also be attached to halters at night so a person can hear their horse moving around in a corral. Or they can be snapped to the collar of a camp dog. Adding one to a wreath on a stall door or the front door of a house adds a little extra Christmas cheer.
“Each bell measures about an inch wide [and] a half an inch thick with a breakaway loop so it’s easy to attach. But if it gets hung up in the tall grass or weeds, it will come loose. A Trail Bell rings just enough to get your attention but is not intrusive to the quietness of trail riding,” Davis says.
