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'!).

Slow down! Some horses eat too fast, or sometimes you need to extend the duration of their meal. Our SmartPak Slow Eater Hay Bag is a durable nylon hay bag with nylon mesh hole designed to slow down hay consumption. Perfect for trailering or use in the stall. 28"(H) X 22"(L) X 8-1/2"(W).

    SmartPak Slow Eater Hay Bag is rated 3.2222 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lasted only 2 weeks I bought this to help an older, easy keeper slim down for possible upcoming surgery. Within a week some of the holes stretched out from repeated use, enabling him to eat faster. Within 2 weeks, the entire mesh area stated to tear away from the body of the bag. The Natick store was very helpful and exchanged the damaged bag for an older style small hole hay net.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used as awards We got a couple of these to give as awards for a North American Trail Ride Conference event. It was easy to put a little brass name plate on them to personalize the prize, and they were very well received. I liked the size and design, but I don't know how well they will hold up as I did not use them personally.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST hay bag I bought this to replace a tough-1 hay bag I got half a year ago. The old hay bag had some sort of a plastic or vinyl coating on the inside that started peeling quickly and I didn't want it in my horse's hay. This hay bag has a no internal coating, it is just canvas, but this canvas is the most durable I have ever seen. It is really sturdy and durable. The net is really strong and wont break from your horse tearing at it. The size is humongous! It is twice as large as any other hay bag I have seen. It holds about 4-6 flakes of hay, depending on how dense the bale is. It has a strap in stead of a clip which I didn't know if I would like, but it works fantastic! Now I can hang it around a fence post, the stall door, trailer window. Before with a clip I could only put it where I had a hanger for it. It is so easy to load too. This is the best hay bag you will ever buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality hay bag, not good 'till the last drop This is a good quality hay bag. Easy to fill, durable hardware, and does the trick well. One note is that the string area is high enough up on the bag that inevitably there is some hay left at the bottom that the horses can't get to. Hence the 4/5 stars. If the bottom was also string-- that would make this the ultimate hay bag (and help dust filter through better! But as is, this is a good quality product (especially for the price) and one I'd buy again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small change, big improvement I bought this for my daughter's new trailer. She has to haul over an hour to and fro lessons and this looks to be a sturdy hay bag. The addition of the slow feed 'grid' over the opening prohibits the possibility that the hay will be yanked out of the bag and onto the floor in 10 minutes.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good This is the first thing I have received from SmartPak that was not good. One bag lasted one feeding. The other bag lasted a couple. We used the net slow feeders and they have lasted a long time, but not these.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from it works if you want your horse to nibble slower, this is the hay bag for you. the only part I am not excited about is the single hook. the horses pull and work to get the hay out and the bag doesn't stay put. had to anchor it down in order for the bag not to flip. but other than the single hook, this bag worked to make my horse keep hay for longer than 15 minutes and not pull all his hay out on the ground.

    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...
