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

Feed your hay smarter with the SmartPak Small Hole Hay Net! With smaller openings than an average hay net, this hay net restricts access to the hay inside so your horse will slow down and enjoy his hay longer, and you'll have a whole lot less waste. Ideal for travel, as you'll have to fill up less frequently, and your horse won't leave as much behind. Also great for horses who need limited access for dietary reasons.

Favorite Features

  • NEW design, 2x wider opening to make loading hay a breeze!
  • 42" Diameter
  • 3 1/2 cm holes for restricted access to hay

SmartPak Small Hole Hay Net is rated 4.3739316239316235 out of 5 by 468.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have been using these small hole hayfeeders for about two weeks now. My two elderly horses, both with Cushings disease, cannot be on pasture, so their forage is an alfalfa mix hay, previously dispensed in their hay racks. The hay is pricey and having to toss half of their ration away after every feeding was quite frustrating - being elderly, they can no longer chew as well, so they would grab huge mouthfuls and gum it to death, only to spit it out and grab another mouthful. They would leave a large pile of uneaten, wet, soggy hay covered in flies. I switched to using the SmartPak small hole hay nets, and now I am cleaning up maybe a small forkful of wasted wet hay instead of half a flake. I did have to teach them how to use the nets by pulling some hay part-way out of several of the holes, but they caught on quickly. They pull small bits at a time, which allows them to actually chew the hay and swallow it since their mouths aren't stuffed full. One of my horses has a chronic throat obstruction which causes him to choke. His episodes of choking have already diminished. In his case, I keep the hay net lower so that he doesn't have to reach up for it. I also make it easier on my old guys by securing the bottom of the net so that it is more stable. If they were younger, I would let the bag swing for added 'slow-down'. I find these nets extremely easy to fill. I place the net inside a muck bucket and stretch the opening over the rim. I fluff my horses' hay first before filling the net to make it easier for them to extract the strands through the holes. I am really hoping that the durability issue of these nets has been addressed by the manufacturer as they are currently working out very well for me. My only suggestion at this time for improvement would be for the thicker hanging rope at the opening to be made of a constrasting color which would make it that much easier to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This worked perfectly! My chubby pony started to gobble his hay in a matter of minutes, so, i decided to get him a slow feeder hay-net. This hay net worked excellent! It took him about an hour to eat 2 flakes when before it took him 20min to eat 2 flakes With my old haynet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product, but not durable enough. I bought this about 2 months ago to help keep my stall-bound horse occupied while he recovers. It definitely slowed down his eating and kept him occupied, but he has already ripped a fairly large hole in it. I will be buying another one since they're not that expensive, but I wish they held up better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really SMART! Deserve to be called the best!! I have a pony named Chubbs, who can eat 2 flakes in less then 10 min (which I think you already thought of because of the name ;)), I have tried a square hay net trying to solve the problem, and it did- he ate his hay within 15-20 minutes, which I was NOT satisfied with. Plus he kept throwing his head up while wanting to get to the hay (holding the net with his teeth), and that has made a huge noise on the metal fence.. So I decided to try this product, and I'm so happy that I did! First and foremost, the small holes are keeping him busy for a longer amount of time, he eats his hay in like 2 hours now, maybe even more. When he tosses his head the net actually goes with him until he gets his hay out, which doesn't make a loud banging noise on my fence, which, of course, I'm happy not to hear. Plus the big opening makes it easier to load hay and I really LOVE how I can fill only partly, and it will still look perfect and do the job (unlike the square net I had before), the net shapes to the amount of hay so I don't have to fill it to the top and it will still work. I like the material, I like how durable it was. Overall I really like this product and recommend it to everyone, will be buying 2 or 3 more for myself :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good size, durable material I wanted to find a haynet with smaller holes than the current one I'm using, but not so small as to frustrate my mare - this seems to fit the bill pretty well!
