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


Instructions for Use:
The hay net should be hung at a sufficient height to avoid the risk of entanglement. To withstand the pulling and chewing associated with a hay net in use, the nylon mesh is extremely durable and will not give under pressure. As a result, it’s important to ensure the hay net is safely secured and won’t become loose as the hay is consumed.

    SmartPak Small Hole Hay Net is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 495.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the same quality as my previous purchase This is a great hay net for a horse who needs to slow down and not bolt their hay. It is a tough and long-lasting design, and the small mesh works perfectly for my big gelding. My only complaint is that the composition of the tie-string has changed. Compared to the same hay nets I purchased last year, these tie-strings are more difficult to manage and knot into place. Everything else is great, and I would recommend this hay net for its design and durability.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice intro to slow hay feeding This bag has holes that are a nice size for a horse getting accustomed to slow hay feeding. A great addition to the product line up would be a larger size net, about twice as big, with about one inch size holes for the more experienced slow feed horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boredom breaker I've had this net for a couple of weeks. I have a 14.3 hand sport pony that detests stall time. He scarfs through his hay...them occupies his time by rubbing his tail.I'm happy to say that the net slows him down and keeps hay in front of him at all times while stalled. And the tail rubbing has stopped. So I'm a big fan of the smart pak small hole hay net. As is Stormy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised I have used this for a few weeks outside in the barnyard to keep my two from devouring hay in the first few minutes, then left with nothing. It does slow them down considerably, but not so frustrating as to deter them. I like the size, but would prefer rings or something around the opening to make it easier to load. It tends to collapse on itself and is a bit frustrating. So far so good. It's holding up okay.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durability is questionable Works well to slow down intake of my hay hoover; however, after two months of use it is starting to fray.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from holds a lot It's bigger than I expected. It holds nearly a whole small bale of hay. Keeps my boy on stall rest busy for hours on end.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and easy to use! I have a young horse on stall rest and I was needing a hay net to keep him occupied during the day so he would go crazy. This hay net has worked great. I can easily fill it and the holes are the perfect size to allow him to slowly 'graze'

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good start I bought this a month ago my 5 yr old has chewed through a few holes already but easy fix tie a few knots and your good to go. I think this is a good start to slowing down your horses eating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicest hay net I ever owned! Well, I have to admit, both my horses are alittle too chubby (hubby & I call them fluffy!) So a slow feeder hay net for turn out is a must. It takes them alot longer to go through their hay during the day. Now we have to be patient, cut down on goodies, and see if their diets do the trick!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy I made this purchase This hay net is easy to fill and tie up in the trailer. Helps keep them nibbling on the hay instead of scattering it everywhere. Seems durable and strong. Good value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is really a great product. I bought this product a couple of months ago and it is has been terrific. It really slows my mare down in her hay eating, and cuts WAY down on waste, as she was the queen of wasting hay.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice net for the price. I bought this net to replace the net on my free up feeder. The net is a good size and fits on the existing holder that I have, the holes are small enough to slow my horse down. I've only been using the net for a few weeks so I can't say whether its going to hold up in the long run. I also would prefer that this net was cotton rather than nylon but this was a sufficient replacement at a reasonable price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Hay-Net, Not a Slow Feeder This is a very nice hay net, however, I would not consider this a slow feeder as the holes are quite large. We bought two of these hay nets for our two geldings, who are both extremely rough on anything and everything. Surprisingly, the hay nets have lasted us about 7-8 months of every day wear and tear, now they both have tears in them and will need to be replaced.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not small enough No complaints with the hay net quality, but the holes are not as small as I thought. I need smaller.
