Using a Grazing Muzzle for Your Horse

Rich Spring and Fall grass can be risky for any horse, so having a grazing muzzle on hand can put your mind at ease while adjusting your horse or pony to pasture. Grazing muzzles are also important for horses suffering from metabolic conditions such as Insulin Resistance, Equine Metabolic Syndrome, Cushings, Laminitis, or Founder. Reducing the amount of grass they can consume while outside can be controlled with a grazing muzzle, allowing them to still be social with herd mates and enjoy time out to pasture.

Grazing muzzles come in many styles and fits to find the right one for your horse. Basket grazing muzzles are a popular choice as they allow plenty of airflow for your horse while limiting the amount of grass they can access. Newer-style muzzles often use a lightweight, soft plastic material that can be attached to any halter.

If your horse cribs, chews on their bandages or wraps, or has other vices, using a horse muzzle can often help reduce those unwanted behaviors while still allowing your horse to eat grass or hay and drink water.

Frequently Asked Questions About Grazing Muzzles

What does a grazing muzzle do for horses?

Grazing muzzles reduce the amount of grass a horse can consume using a grid or basket pattern, often with small holes, or a single center hole, that only allows small amounts of grass to poke through at a time. Grazing muzzles allow horses that need to restrict their calorie or sugar content to still spend time outside.

How should a grazing muzzle fit?

Horse grazing muzzles are all designed a bit differently. Still, you typically want a grazing muzzle to fit comfortably on your horse so that the halter or halter straps sit on your horse’s face how a traditional halter would fit, with the muzzle or basket muzzle portion to cover their mouth and nose with enough space that it won’t rub. Usually, you would want 1-2” of space from the bottom of your horse’s lips to the bottom of the muzzle.

How long should a horse wear a grazing muzzle?

It is recommended that horse grazing muzzles be worn for up to 8-10 hours a day as long as a horse always has access to fresh water. However, if you have a horse that is turned out 24/7 try to remove the muzzle for at least an hour a day to give them a break, allow them to access salt blocks or licks, and check for rubs or sores.
