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'!).

Why We Love This

The patented Free-Up Feeder is great for stall hay feeding and swings open to fill in less than 30 seconds! The metal Free-Up Feeder Frame measures 12" x 24" and features safe, rounded corners, plus a threaded locking nut. Open the nut to weave your Cinch Net onto the frame. Once the net is on the frame, turn the nut to close for additional safety and overall structural strength.

Ideal for: Large stables and streamlining chores. Use in stalls, trailers, lean-tos, turn outs, panels, fences or on barn walls. Works indoors or outdoors!

The Original (1 3/4") HEAVY DUTY opening size is good for more aggressive eaters and a larger herd. Also good for horses that haven't used a slow feed net before. It's great for slowing down horses that eat fast, are generally healthy, but waste too much hay.

The SF/Slow Feed (1 1/4") opening size is good for horses that doen't get enough exercise or are metabolic. Very easy keepers who have used slow feed nets before do well on this net level. Also works well as a pacifier for stall-bound horses.

    Hay Chix® Free-Up Feeder is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from does it's job This net is pretty easy once you figure out how to get the bar to lock and the hay net out of the way ... I have fed in hanging nets for 11 years , this year my neck has been bothering me . Go figure hanging a 10-15 pound hay net over my head to hook it .. this is very easy to stuff and slows down my chow hound mare ..
    Date published: 2018-02-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Genius product! I board at a large facility and my groom loves this. Easy to refill, keeps my one horse from stepping on good hay and ruining it and then not eating it. Stall clean up is way easier and faster too. Haynet is filled for the evening with a couple flakes on the ground underneath. Horses are out all day. When they come in for evening, they eat flakes first and then have the nets to work on the rest of the nite. Works out great!
