Home / Haygain Forager

Introducing the revolutionary new Haygain Forager that encourages slow feeding to improve your horse’s health and save you money.

Developed with the Royal Agricultural University, the scientifically designed Haygain Forager gives your horse the following benefits:

Regulates and slows down intake
Allows your horse to feed in a natural grazing position
Encourages your horse to trickle feed which aids in the prevention of EGUS and obesity
Reduces stable boredom and the risk of developing stable vices
Stops cross contamination of forage and bedding, saving you time and money
Easy to clean, fill and flat pack for travel

Your horse needs to feed slowly across the course of the day. Limited access to hay can multiply heart rates by up to 4 at the time of feeding¹, and can lead to laminitis, gastric ulcers, colic, obesity and stable vices².
