    I personally think this helped me a lot. My horse is over weight and I was wondering how she could lose some of that weight. Without this I probably wouldn’t know how to keep my horse at a healthy weight. Thank you!!

    Hi there I was just wondering if its ok for me to give my horse a a break for a day from the muzzle or for her to have it on every day?

      Hi Audrey–for most horses, yes. It really depends on your specific situation though. For some horses, having the muzzle on full time can be stressful, and that’s not ideal. If your horse is overweight and laminitis is a concern, the best time to take the muzzle off is in the early morning hours when the sugar content is lowest in grasses. When I used the muzzles, I left them on during the day and took them off at night. You just have to find what works best for your horse and your situation. Good luck!
