    You can wrap the string around the throatlatch and then tie it at the end. My mare looks so silly in a bonnet too

    ^ That's how I do mine...or I cut the tie off and either hope my bridle will hold it on, or loop a small piece of velcro through the poll area and attach around the bridle. Can't even see the velcro from the ground, and works great. :)
