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 552.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not For Me I am a happy Smartpak customer, but I unfortunately this haynet is not for me. It was too long for my tastes as I prefer a wider rather than a tall net, and I did not like the feel of the material- too slick. I chose to return them rather than try them on my horses to see what they thought (they sometimes have different opinions about things than I do). I use haynets daily, and I really want something I enjoy using.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and does the job I got these for my 3 geldings and after you have used them it gets easier to load. I fill them up and it lasts them all day on my 12 hour work days!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother These bag holes are NOT 3.5 cm's big. They are 3.5 INCHES. If you are looking to buy small hole slow feed bags, these are not them. I ordered them because I thought they were going to be smaller than the typical slow feed bags and now I have to eat the cost to ship them back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable! I purchased four of these nets for daily use. I was skeptical when I first saw the net material and concerned that it would easily weather and become brittle. After 2 months of daily, outdoor use the nets are in the same condition as they came. They have held up to naughty ponies and the crazy Maryland weather so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed review I'm a haybag addict and this one was on special. It's overall great but the cord is way too long in my opinion so its one of my more difficult one's to secure since I knot them and attach to a snap. That's my only criticism.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I purchased this hay net for my horse who is on stall rest due to an injury. I'm not a huge fan of hay nets, but that is because in the past I have paid $40+ to quickly learn that the horses have managed to pull them apart. This hay net is fairly easy to load, holds a sufficient amount per horse, and HOLDS UP! So far, no destruction and it does it's job by allowing the horse to slowly feed. Another advantage is that there is less waste - less mess! I purchased a second one so that both horses have one now. I plan to purchase more when they are on sale.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong & easy to fill. My horse gets aggravated eating from this small hole hay net, but it's what he needs & eating slow should decrease his gut a little. Quality is taking his aggravation!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfortunately after less than a week of use my horse destroyed this hay net and it ended up on the ground and around his feet. While there is a risk with any thing you hang in the stall I was very disappointed I didn't get more use out of this and that it became a potential hazard. Would not recommend at all.
    Date published: 2017-01-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Practical I purchased these to hang in the sheds when it snows and the horses cannot graze. It gives them something to do and eat all day without the downsides of feeding loose hay or round bales. They are a pain to fill and one of them came untied when I opened it out of the packaging and it took me forever to figure out how to fix it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag for the price! Bought this for horses to eat out of when stalled on rainy days. Works great and slows them down but putting hay in bag can be a little challenging.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality made and works great! Used this hay net when my overweight mare was on stall rest for an injury. Worked great by making her three flakes last longer and keep her busy. It was recommended by one of the customer service representatives!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I tried out several brands and this is by far the best. I still have mine from 2011/2012, even though it has a little hole or two now i use an extra clip to make it smaller and still use them. It was time to order more so i went back to these. I did try the expensive freedom feeder hay net and my horse got a hole in that one it can happen with every brand. Buy and extra hay bag esspecially if u just starting your horse on smaller hole hay bags. For beginner slow feeder this has helped me trasnsistion with my horse: Feed them half hay in the bag ...half outside...this way they wont attack your bag while starving. After a few days lessen the hay amount outside the bag. I think it took me like 10days. I like when my horse has something to eat all the time so i stead of a roundbale 24/7 i hang up these several haynets. I use a big clip to tie the bag together and hang it up i stead of the string, works for me better. I fit anywhere between 4 to 6...depending on how big... 2 string squarebales 'slices' in it...havent tried 3 string. When i fill up the bag real heavy what i always do i never had a problem with the material not being able to take it, oposite i am more impressed... My horse isnt very gentle with haybags. I would reccomend these to anyone. Way to go smart pak on this product!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed We bought these hay nets to help save hay instead of having it trampled all over the stalls from feeding on the floor of the stalls, and they work perfectly! The horses have very small piles now under the hay nets, with no waste mixed through the shavings and thrown out. They're also entertained for much longer since they have to work to get the hay out, so the nets help with boredom issues, too. Great quality and super easy to use!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job well Using these new nets for the last month. They have a larger capacity than those purchased several years ago, easily holds 20# orchard grass with room to spare. Sturdy cord construction withstands 'mortal combat' style of young colts eating from a net and prevents hay being scattered and used as bedding. More importantly, having hay available at all times, they eat a smaller amount more slowly, learn patience and become less food focused. The tie cord is in tight circular wrap around the net in the shipping package. Unfortunately, the coil memory remains in the tie and the last foot of the tie end coils around one's hand like a slinky when attempting to tie it thru a ring or to a post, not impossible, but very annoying. Also won't hold a knot in the tie ends, taped them together so they don't slip out of the net.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Haynet! I bought this haynet a few weeks ago, and so far I really like it. The only thing I would have to say that I didn't like was the tie string. It was so stiff I could not tie it. What I ended up doing for temporary, was taking a clip and running it through each rope ring and hanging it on a ring. It is troublesome, having to keep taking it out and putting it back on, but it works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great net! This is our second (and back up) hay net. Love it! Great price.
    Date published: 2016-12-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! We purchased 6 of these nets & use them mainly on our fence posts to set up feeding stations in our paddocks so horses won't push each other off. This works great. We can fit 2 large square bale flakes (3x3) in them. Having the nets has eliminated wasting hay & makes the horses eat more leisurely which really helps out our senior horses. These bags can also be used in stalls & in your trailer. I highly recommend them.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasted three days Sorry to say these nets lasted only three days. Both horses ripped large holes in the bags. Material is not strong enough for my horses. All the other SmartPak products I have used have been wonderful.
    Date published: 2016-12-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hay Net This is the best hay net! It keeps the hay neat, not wasting or dropping all over. More importantly the smaller holes as compared to conventional hay net keep my horse munching at a desirable rate, not pigging out! It is very durable, the netting is strong. It does hold at least 4 flakes as the video stated, which makes me very happy!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decline in quality These were my go-to nets for two years and they held up great. In the past 6-12 months though, there's been a decline in quality. The netting hasn't held up as well, developing lots of holes. Lately, the ones I've bought have come with big loose knots in the tie string that are impossible to keep secure. After wasting time every day trying to re-tighten them so the whole thing doesn't fall to the ground and present an entanglement hazard, I gave up and decided to try the Niblet premium poly net from Riding Warehouse. It's $6 cheaper, seems to be made of similar material, and has a secure knot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Stars from Cody I have had these hay nets for over three years. At first I just used them in my horse trailer because they were easy to fill, and big. Last year I started using it to feed second cutting hay to my horse in his stall. I have a hard keeper who is also picky so I was reluctant to use a small hole hay net because I want him to eat more! The hay net actually helped him eat more because I stopped losing so much hay to him trampling it and pooping on it. I can put 6+ flakes in at night and he will consume them all without it being mixed into his stall. I use this every single day, and my horse throws it around and it has held up great.
    Date published: 2016-11-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality for the price I bought this about a month and a half ago to leave in my horse's stall. He inhales hay so needed something to slow him down. Bought this net because it was cheap, not expecting it to last long but it seems to be holding up great!
