Top Tips

to create sharp Quarter Marks

  • Flatten the Coat

    If the coat is a little fluffy or long you can start by spraying a bit of water or diluted essential oil coat conditioner to dampen it & sit it flat.

  • Choose Your Design

    Choose styles that accentuate your horse’s conformation or your own style. If your horse has a slopy shape rump you could try a ‘crown’ to give the appearance of it being more rounded.

  • Get the Right Angle

    If your horse is tall you can stand on a step to ensure the markers are the same on both sides from the top.
