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'!).

Slow down! Some horses eat too fast, or sometimes you need to extend the duration of their meal. Our SmartPak Slow Eater Hay Bag is a durable nylon hay bag with nylon mesh hole designed to slow down hay consumption. Perfect for trailering or use in the stall. 28"(H) X 22"(L) X 8-1/2"(W).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I starting using my new hay bag about 3 weeks ago and so far it is holding up great. I use it every night for my mare who gets a little impatient about being inside. This has helped to keep her occupied a little longer without feeding her more ( she's a very easy keeper). My only complaint is that there is no way to close the top. I have watched her eat from the top holes before she goes for the front so I have it hung fairly hi. Over all it's a great bag at a great price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't last 24 hours I got these to keep my horses eating longer and both put holes in the netting the first night. I'm still using them but the are falling apart.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from SmartPak has great service Almost as soon as I got this my mare pulled part of the netting out.  SmartPak immediately sent me a new one which has lasted several months but now not only has she pulled the netting out, she has figured out how to just eat out of the top of it.  When I called SmartPak they were great and are sending me a different bag as a replacement.  The customer service is exceptional and although I would not recommend this bag I do recommend SmarkPak.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hay bag for the price Great hay bag for horses that aren't rough on bags. Haven't used mine yet because I bought it for horse shows. My horse treats bags with respect so I hope this bag will last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hay bag ever! Such great quality at a very affordable price. Love the net over the hole so they can't pull the whole flake of hay out at once and make a huge mess. Will be ordering more of these for shows this season!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad design While this bag seems to be made very well, the design must not have been thought out very well. If you only put maybe a small amount of hay in it then it may work better for you. But I put a good bit of hay out for my horses to munch on all day. When you fill up these bags close to full the entire top of the bag is wide open. I hung the bag high in hope my horses wouldn't notice that the top was gaping open, but my mare went right for it and gobbled down as much hay as she could before I took it down. I also have the small hole hay net and that is what I use now. I'm going to try to add velcro or something to close up the top which might help. Smart Pak should consider a redesign on this product to have the top cinch all the way closed. It would be perfect if they could just fix that issue!
