As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

New and Improved with a safe release!

How many of us get up at the crack of dawn with horses pawing?

Restricted access to hay or forage isn't natural for horses, and it can cause problems ranging from boredom and destructive behavior to ulcers and digestive upset. However, some horses can't have free choice hay all day long, without gaining weight, wasting hay or making a huge mess!

Finally, there's a great, easy solution. The Freedom Feeder Small Hole Hay Nets allow your horses to feed naturally 24/7 through a simple restricted free access feeding.

Regular - 4' x 2.5' Holds at least 35 lbs of hay and lasts at least 24 hours
Mini - 24" x 30" Holds at least 15 lbs of hay

Each hole measures 1 1/2" x 1 1/2".

Made in U.S.A.

Please note: As with all hay nets, the Freedom Feeder should be hung at a sufficient height to avoid the risk of entanglement. To withstand the pulling and chewing associated with a hay net in use, the nylon mesh is extremely durable and will not give under pressure. As a result, it’s important to ensure the hay net is safely secured and won’t become loose as the hay is consumed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse hates it...but I LOVE IT! Great for those horses that are vacuums that need to go on a diet! I got the mini and I would say it holds up to 3 average flakes. Perfect for small meals through out the day that you want to last more than 20 mins. My mare gets frustrated at the net but it has held up well. I find that she only nibbles when she is hungry now, not just eating because it is there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hay Net Ever! We have used these hay nets and 4 other brands and types for the last 6 years and the Freedom net is the only one still holding up! With big horses and a herd of miniature horses, they really put the nets and bags through rough and tumble testing.All brands fell apart except this one. I cut a large horse sized one in two for the minis after a couple of years, tied the side with baliing twine, and they are still in excellent shape. They get pawed, and chewed on all the time and don't even fray. I love these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful hay net! I love this hay net. My horse eats much slower and is in good shape. She is happy and her attitude is so much better. They are easy to fill and hold up extremely well.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not happy I LOVED the "smartpak" hay nets and really wanted to love these. I don't. The most you can put in is 6lbs! I had to change the ropes, so, I can't return them. I'll use them for the pony. But it's a lot of money for very little satisfaction.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I have been using Freedom Feeders for a long time and have told so many of my friends about them as well. They are soft on the horse's nose yet super sturdy. The manufacturer is very helpful if you have any questions and they stand behind their product 100%. We have saved so much money on wasted hay and with the large size we don't have to worry about the horses running out of food. They are always ready to ride because there are no meal times to worry about any longer. What a great concept! You definitely get what you pay for with Freedom Feeder nets. I only wish Smart Pak would show a picture of the larger size and carry the Full Bale size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extended day slow feeder - so far so good I've used the extended day bag (the larger of the two offered) for a couple of weeks so my experience is limited. It seems a tad small to hold the 35+ lbs the manufacturer claims. I haven't been able to stuff that amount of hay in it. My horse is getting used to the small mesh opening. I'm pleased with the quality.
