The Pacefeeder ® is designed to allow the horse to search, tear, chew and eat hay in a naturally continuous and slow manner in their correct body posture ensuring the horse is getting the right amount of hay over a longer period of time. The idea and design for Pacefeeder came from equine research on equine’s natural behaviours and nutrition.
