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 4.3 out of 5 by 556.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hay Net I have a horse that gobbles down his hay, This net has definitely slowed down my horse and makes his hay last longer, perfect for horses on stall rest.
    Date published: 2018-02-02
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from What happened? I Have ordered many hay nets over the years. However, on the past 2 orders there were some issues with the quality of the nets. The opening "rope" knotted too short, making it difficult to fill. Also some frayed areas causing concern as to how long they will last. Quality control issues. Disappointing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from small and mighty Love this net the small holes slows down time it takes to eat and the bag is "mighty" large. It is big enough to keep my horse busy for hours when he is at show and stalled for long hours

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good Nice large size & long tie rope that doesn't come out every time you open it to fill. Would like to see even smaller holes of 1" size to slow down the eating more. Nylon not as heavy duty as another brand I have, has developed a few holes. I've used some baling twine to close them up. My horses are barefoot so I just leave on ground and they step on net to hold it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasted A Week This hay net only lasted about a week for me. My horse has used other hay nets before with no problem, but this one developed a giant hole and became unusable. I've been trying to contact Smartpak asking for a refund but haven't heard back. This is the only negative experience I've had with smartpak or any of their products. I'm using the SmartPak hay bag now with much success.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I bought this for an ex- race horse that is unhappy in his stall. He plays with it uses it as a pillow and eats hay from it..Keeps him happy!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not sturdy enough At first I liked this net for its softness and hole size -- it hit the sweet spot, slowing my voracious draft-cross gelding down just a bit, without frustrating him. However, in three weeks he has destroyed two of the three nets I bought. I tried patching them, but he had realized he could rip holes in them so I gave up. Found another brand that has a sturdier gauge of nylon netting. So far they are holding up better. For a less aggressive eater they might work just fine, but not for my guy.
    Date published: 2017-11-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big, hard to fill We've only been using this bag for about a week, so I don't know how well it will last. It's much bigger than my other bag. We can stuff it with 15lbs of hay pulled from a large round bale. The holes are big enough to make my horse work to eat, but not so small to frustrate him. There's very little mess on the ground. What I don't like about the bag is the opening. The loops there are very big and since this is a fairly thin nylon, they just flop, making it difficult to hold the bag open to fill it. Since my horse will be eating from bags year around for the foreseeable future, I hope this thin nylon lasts a while.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doesn't slow down "the glutton" any too much It slows down the very greedy feeder some but, sadly, not enough I think for most horses it would do a fine job
    Date published: 2017-10-09
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Large size but not sure on the quality I bought this bag to use in the trailer and pasture. The size is great as I can load a good amount of hay and the nylon mesh material is soft. Unfortunately I've only used it for a couple of weeks and it's already started fraying at several knots. I ended up purchasing another more durable bag and use this one as a back-up.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hay net hole size Small holes are same as my 2" Hay net. I was expecting 1-1/2" holes. Not what I was expecting.
    Date published: 2017-09-19
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Net is fine, hole measurement is innacurate These nets have 5cm holes, not 3.5cm, making them not actually a slow feed net. These will work well if you want to keep hay contained, but 2" holes do not actually slow vigorous eating horses down.
    Date published: 2017-09-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made well. I bought this to feed my horse that is on rehab from a cut leg. It lets him have hay all day and not become so bored with being in a small enclosure.
    Date published: 2017-09-18
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Net is pretty good, rope handle is a pain Bought 4 of these hay nets for my 3 horses. 1 bag was chewed through within a week, but the other 3 are working. The worst part of this product is the rope handle. Comes not tied, so it's a pain to put several knots in it, plus it's AWFUL to twist up which keeps one from opening the net to fill or empty!!! Does reduce some hay waste, but really hate that rope handle. Am going to try another type, your nylon slow feed hay bag, to see how that works. Hate to have to pay that much but have had enough frustration with that rope handle!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, great price Bought this for my fast eater, definitely slows him down, makes him pay attention and work for his forage.
    Date published: 2017-08-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good hay net This is a good slow feed hay net although the rope at the top of mine didn’t come tied, and it’s a slick material, so when I tied mine, it comes untied all the time when I’m loading hay, then I have to re-string the rope through which is a pain. Maybe if you are a Boy Scout or a sailor and know super fancy knots you wouldn’t have this problem. Otherwise, make sure you buy a double ended clip or some sort of snap to go with this to hang it! It’s a good quality net and I really like it.
    Date published: 2017-08-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minimal mess in trailer Purchased two of these nets to keep the horses busy in the trailer. Most of the hay stays in the net and lasts the entire trip. Very happy with product and price!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Holes larger than advertised The hay net holes were almost the same size as the 2" hay net I presently use. The inch equivalent to 3.5 cm is 1.37 inches. The hay net holes were larger than 1.37 inches. I returned the product.
    Date published: 2017-06-07
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The quality is good, it's sturdy but its difficult to hang. It would be great if it had clips or a sturdy bottom for filling & securing to the corral.
    Date published: 2017-06-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use This hay bag is easy to use. Opens wide easily and is easy to tie. Many plastic hay bags are hard to open and tie. Not this one. The material is more pliable. And it slows eating down which is better for digestion and less waste.
    Date published: 2017-05-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Love this slow hay feeder. It's easy to fill and more durable than I thought it was going to be.
    Date published: 2017-05-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly! I bought the small hole hay net 5 months ago, and have been using it ever since. I had the regular hay nets to help keep waste down when feeding my big pony mare, but hay would fall out anyway, and she wood eat so quickly, that she felt hungry and bored while no one was around. A bored pony is never a good thing.... This haynet was the perfect answer! It slowed her eating and stretched out the time it took her to eat keeping her from getting bored so quickly and helping her to eat better. I find the net is very durable. I've inspected it for any damage thinking she might chew on it from frustration, but the entire net is intact. I noticed that there was advertising for an "easy fill" hay net shortly after I purchased the regular version. I don't need it, this one has been fine for me, WAY better than my old ones! I found the smaller holes make the net stiffer. When refilling it, I simply open the top completely and fold it over to the outside about 6-12 inches. I then just fill it up! I've noticed I can put 4-6 leaves or so in there so plenty of hay for twice daily feeding for my situation. I highly recommend this product to anyone needing a way to slow down a fast eater. Great quality, great price and fast shipping. Thank you, Smartpack!
