Like it very much
I have tried using other grazing muzzles, the ones like a halter, but I had trouble keeping them on. both my horse and pony were able to slip them off within a day or two, but this one with the velcro works! and it doesn't rub him like the other one did. great product! would recommend!

Great muzzle, but runs very small!
First, the size issue. I ordered the cob size for our 13 hh pony. It was way too small. He couldn't even open his mouth. He needs the horse size. One of our boarders had to get the extra large for her horse with a typical size head.
Second, the actual muzzle. The actual muzzle is great. It is sturdy, effective and has not created any rubs around the nose.
We have had only one issue. If the Velcro is extended too fat, it is very easy for the horse to rub off.
I paired this with nylon Velcro breakaway halter sold by Smartpak. So, I feel like out pony is very safe. I can also easily replace one component or the other if I ever need to.
I would buy again knowing the adjustment I would need to make in size.

This grazing muzzle is very sturdy and is easy to put on or take off. It is effectively keeping my pony from ballooning, and seems to be relatively comfortable for him to wear.

High quality muzzle - very small fit
I bought a cob size muzzle for our 13 hh Quarter Pony. He wears a pony bridle and cob halter. The cob size muzzle wouldn't even fit over his mouth let alone give him room to open his mouth to eat.
We easily returned the muzzle for a horse size the horse size fits him well.
The muzzle easily attaches to his breakaway halter. He has not managed to pull it off or get it caught on anything. He has not come in with any rubs.
Last year, he chewed through the hole enough to double size the hole by the end of the season. So, I went with the separate basket to make replacement easier in the future as needed.

Not as good as the muzzle with the built-in halter
I decided to use this with a leather halter instead of the all-in-one last summer and it was alright but not great. It didn't really fit well on my halter and I had to put electrical tape to keep the velcro attached after about 2 weeks of my horse wearing it on night turnout. Although you may have to replace the all-in-one if your horse breaks it, it definitely is worth the extra money for a better fit.

Horse doesn't mind!
I thought my horse would hate wearing this, but doesn't mind at all. It's made very well, and the straps are very secure.
