Product Summary:

Ships to Canada
Best Friend® Deluxe Grazing Muzzles are recommended by equine health professionals to prevent, as well as treat, laminitis, founder, obesity, colic and other diet-related diseases. The small opening in the bottom allows horses a limited amount of grass, yet unlimited water. Rather than being restricted to a non-grass environment to control intake, horses are free to exercise and socialize as part of the herd.  A combination grazing muzzle and breakaway halter all in one, the design utilizes a plastic side-release buckles as it's breakaway feature.  Each Deluxe muzzle comes with a spare buckle that can be easily attached in the field.   
 
To use, adjust The Best Friend®  Deluxe Grazing Muzzle to the horse using the same principles as the fit of a comfortable halter. Leave approximately one inch between the horse's mouth and the inside of the muzzle. The Deluxe muzzle has a roomy fit to allow for chewing. You should be able to fit two to three fingers sideways between your horse's face and the muzzle. This is our most popular design because it is so easy to use and costs less than purchasing a separate breakaway halter.
 
The rubber bottom in the grazing muzzle is approx. 1/4" thick. 
 
  • Your horse is happier as a result of not being kept away from both his grass and his outdoor buddies.
  • Your horse can get the required exercise. (The average horse covers one mile per hour while grazing.)
  • Disease prevention is easier and less expensive than a visit by the vet.
  • All synthetic materials make it lightweight, rot resistant and well-ventilated.
  • Padded noseband helps resist rubbing and chafing.
  • Most durable, comfortable and safest grazing muzzle available. 
  • Recommended by John Lyon’s Perfect Horse and The Horse Journal.
  • Reduces bedding bill and stall-cleaning time.
  • You have peace of mind knowing your horse is happier and healthier.

These works great

Have used this brand of grazing halter for four years. Broke a snap on current one which cannot be replaced without taking to a saddle repair shop...unfortunate because rest of halter is fine. Buy new one every year because feeding hole gets stretched.

Have had my Best Friends grazing muzzle on my 20 year old Peruvian paso for 4 days, about 4 hours at a time...seems to fit well (very adjustable)..but he just stands in pasture and looks miserable...Any suggestions? Am I expecting too much too soon?
mary m on Apr 27, 2014
Best Answer: probably ! After all, you're using it so he will graze less, yes? It's better than being cooped up in a stall. He'll still move around and if you have other horses, he has company. He'll gradually realize he can get a few blades from the little hole in the bottom, and he'll be fine. My mare looks exactly like she always has. . . .head down grazing away but it's physically impossible for her to get much grass so she's dropped the weight and is moving much better. Remember, it's YOU who might be miserable not him. He's just resting.

can a horse drink from a water trough with this on?
A shopper on Jul 3, 2015
Best Answer: Absolutely, just fine. They even think they're grazing even though the most they can get are maybe a few blades. My mare wears it willingly and it prevents her from eating too much green grass. It has been a life-saver literally for her. I've put sheepskin attachments on the side pieces to make it more comfortable. Highly recommended for the over-eater or the insulin-sensitive horses.

Will the cob size be too big for a 32 inch mini?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2015
Best Answer: I suggest measuring the circumference of the muzzle and that of the mini's nose and compare. I needed a larger size for my 13.2 Welsh pony. It rubbed him a bit because of the way he would push it to the side to reach some grass.

How do I know what size to choose? I have 16-2 Appy with EMS. Horse or Large Horse?
Linda H on Feb 18, 2014
Best Answer: First I ordered a large horse and thought it was too big so I ordered a horse--and this rubbed on him. So I switched back to the large horse. It seems too loose but too loose is better than a bit tight. He is 16.3.

does it have a break away?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2015
Best Answer: Yes it does and you should purchase the replacement buckles since local stores don't have the same style.

can it be used for eating hay?
Linda R on Dec 30, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Linda

Grazing muzzels are not intended for use with hay. My standardbred mare used it only when out to pasture - mainly when the pasture was rich during spring and early summer and again when fall came around (starch level in the grass would be higher in preparation for winter). Starch levels in hay are lower than grass.

Can you leave it on all night at pasture?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2015
Best Answer: I leave it on my fat pony for 10 hours at a time every 2nd day. I see very slight rubbing at her muzzle area where the cup edge touches her. The rubbing marks disappeared after a few hours of having the cup off. I don't see any other bad effects, she readily accepts the muzzle. I estimate that she eats about 40% less when she wears it.
