one use they have (I'm not up on all of them) is that they are supposed to be helpful for teaching a horse to maintain a steady pace- as they jingle/jangle etc in rhythm as the horse moves.
I have a few of them , I made a bunch for giggles for everyone one year- the ones I made hook into the mane however, usually you see them as larger- where they encircle the neck completely.
if you do a web search, usually a few producers will pop up.
