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 5 out of 5 by from Looks weird but does the job! I know this looks weird, but my horse had colicked for the first time in over a year and half of having him. He was cribbing at night, and hadn't been ridden in a couple of days, so he wasn't good. The cribbing collar wasn't working, so we decided to try this. He is more than willing to put it on, as he can still eat, but does fling it around a bit when it is on. He has been well ever since, knock on wood, and it stays on him well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives my mare at break My mare is a heavy duty cribber. She wears her cribbing collar 24/7 and when she goes outside because she won't leave the fence alone, we tighten it then loosen it when she comes in. Being a TB she has worn the hair off her neck so I put fleece on the collar. That was good in the winter but with spring rain it go soaked and in the few days between visits to the barn she got rubbed raw with what can be described as hot spots. So to give her a break I decided to try this muzzle. Because there are hay feeders in the paddocks I have been afraid that she would get stuck so we use the muzzle when she is inside and the collar when she is out. It has worked out well. The hair has grown back, she is more flexible when I ride her. It did not take her long to figure out how to eat hay and drink with it but grain has been more difficult so we just remove it long enough for her to eat. It was easy to attach to her halter which is a break away crown for more safety. I would recommend this muzzle to anyone with a cribber, you just may have to adjust times when they wear it.

    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.

    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...
