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'!).

Looking for a muzzle that is lightweight and humane, yet allows your horse to eat freely?

The Cribbing/Free to Eat Muzzle Limits unwanted behavior, such as cribbing and biting, not eating and drinking.

Ultra-lightweight aluminum grill and nylon webbing is resistant to rust, rot and mildew. The Cribbing/Free to Eat Muzzle has a comfortable padded noseband with four-point attachments to prevent pivoting and rotating. Muzzles fit most halters.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't last I bought the muzzle because my horse decided his winter blues was too boring and his brother's blankets needed adjustments (aka tears.) The muzzle worked great but was abused quickly and 2 of the 4 straps fell off or were removed by him in about 14 days. I wish it was structurally more sturdy because otherwise it would be prefect!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish it was more durable My horse has unfortunately gone through 2 of these in 2 weeks. The stitching on the first muzzle fell apart within 2 days of my horse wearing it. The bar on the second muzzle broke winthin 5 days of the muzzle arriving. This product would work extremely well if it wasn't so poorly built. Thank goodness for Smartpak's great customer service!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great muzzle just needs stronger Velcro I have a mild cribber who can't wear a miracle collar or a nutcracker, and ate right through the Dare collar. This allows her to eat and drink freely but stops the cribbing. My biggest criticism is that the velcro is very weak. They need to either use stronger velcro or switch to a different design where the 2 sides and bottom attachment are clips of some sort to halter and the top nose attachment be similar to what it is now, just with a stronger attachment (with comfort in mind). I find I need to buy 1 per year as the single loop that attaches to the halter just becomes weak and wears away.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horse figured it out within 36 hours of wearing it My horse is a ridiculous cribber and always tries, even when he has a tight collar on. My trainer suggested a muzzle, so I ordered this one and received it in the mail a couple days later. I love the shipping, and love SmartPak, but my horse managed to pull down three boards within the 36 hours he had it on. Granted, he is a very smart horse, but this product shouldn't be that easy to crib with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely can't Crib! I purchased this product wanting my horse to have a bigger eating area yet stop him from cribbing. This does the trick. It's a little heavy but not too bad. I recommend you buying fleece for the halter and such... It will rub. A little hanibal lecter like, but hey, it works!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed! I bought this because my horse is boarded in a group turnout situation. When it was him and the 2-year-old, things were fine. Upon adding a new pony to the mix, my very large gelding began charging at the other two and biting them severely. He caused some pretty ugly skin wounds and destroyed a blanket. We tried another muzzle, which did not fit well and seemed to bother my horse. This new muzzle came in a large enough size to fit well, allows my horse to eat his normal hay ration, and completely prevents his aggression toward the other horses. Peace reigns once again in his paddock, and I have not had to replace any more blankets!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from my horse can still eat Sky can still eat and drink. Now she cannot suck wind. She has been confined to her stall for 9 months, but is doing much better.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
