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 - NEW! is rated 4.4192 out of 5 by 365.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for soaking hay I needed a net to use for soaking hay and this net works perfectly. It is nylon so doesn't absorb water and dries quickly. The only thing it could be improved on is an opening that would be easier to fill with hay. The opening is plenty big enough, but it scrunches closed. I just bought my second one so one can be filled and ready to soak while the other is in the stall being used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best haynet I have EVER used !!! Super easy to load , very well made , holds at least half a bale . Holes are the perfect size to slow them down but not too small that they get frustrated and can't get all the hay. I will never order any other hay net . Not to mention the fantastic price . Way to go Smartpak , yet again !!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large capacity hay net. These hay nets are not the smallest hole available. I tried 1" small hole hay nets but the horses wound up destroying them. They wore them out chewing on them to get to the hay. I have to admit that they lasted about 8 months even with the chewing but I had repaired them quite a bit with baling twine. The holes are 1/3" larger and also much larger capacity than the 1" hole ones I got from another source. I could fit 24 hours worth of hay in these nets for my 2 mustangs. I love that feeding time is very calm with net feeding. No waste and no frantic pacing when dinner time comes around. It is the closest to pasture feeding you can get in a dry lot situation. None of my precious hay becomes bedding, either. I have them clipped to a panel inside their metal shelters and sitting in a 40 gal tub that is chained to the shelter. The tub catches the "crumbs" and very little hay winds up on the ground. I wrap the extra cord around the top of the bag a couple of times before clipping it on to avoid excess cord that could be a hazard. These are large, I am 5'4" and when I fill the bag with it resting just on the ground and hold the cords up they are at eye level on me. The top of the bag probably hits just below my waist. I just grab the top of the bag with a handful of cord to carry them to my horses. They are easy to open and I hook them to a doorway to keep the top open for filling.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall good hay net, tie cord too thick These hay nets are easy to load and pretty durable. The holes are a nice small size. Only drawback is that the cord is a little too thick for my taste. This makes it harder to tie than other haynets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from product is working well I purchased four of these for a trip. They hold half of a 60 pound bale of hay each. They are all holding up well after two trips in the trailer and full time use on site. The economic value of the lack of wasted hay has about paid for them already. Horses are happy and satisfied and I am happy too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product. I'mm happy with this purchase. The net appears very durable and should last quite some time. I really like how it slows my horse's feeding time down and keeps the hay off of the ground.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made, stands up to hungry friesians. Bought to use for brood mares. They need to be busy and not eat too much. Well made, good size holes...makes them work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Inexpensive hay net! I bought two of these hay nets two months ago to use at trailer nets. Based on other reviews I was worried that they might not hold up but I ended up using them for 24/7 use and these have withstood everything! My horses were also acclimated to eating from a small hole hay net from Cinch Chix nets prior to eating out of these so maybe they aren't as rough on them as horses who are just learning. I love the size of the bag (I can split a 50lb bale between the two nets) and the size of the holes (although they may be too big for horses who need the 1" size holes). If you are looking for a cheap alternative to the Cinch Chix nets, these are great nets, although they may not hold up to horses learning how to eat out of slow feed nets.
