All grazing muzzles pose some risk of teeth wear due to the fact the horse's teeth may rub against the interior surface of the muzzle. Reduce the risk by regularly washing the muzzle to remove dirt and sand. Check your horse's front teeth on a weekly basis - if there are any signs of abnormal wear, discontinue use.Learn More
Laminitis is a very debilitating condition which is common is ponies and horses during the spring and autumn when grass contains a high level of soluble carbohydrate. Laminitis results in restricted blood flow to the fibres which hold the pedal bone in position within the hoof cavity and this causes the fibres to become damage and detached from the pedal bone. If the pedal bone rotates, it can be very damaging and in severe cases can lead to euthanasia of the affected horse or pony. Laminitis can be prevented by restricting the intake of grass during the high risk seasons along with good weight management. By using a grazing muzzle, you can effectively restrict the horse's intake of grass without causing disturbance to the horse's digestive system. Grazing muzzles allow for the horse to drink and eat but muzzles restrict the amount of grass that a horse can take in one bite.
