NEWC Grazing Muzzle Guidance 


Grazing muzzles are used to restrict grass intake, not to prevent a horse from eating. Restricting grass intake is important for horses with a tendency to gain weight or that are susceptible to laminitis. Grazing muzzles come in different shapes and sizes but they are all designed to do the same job. Choice of grazing muzzle will depend upon individual fit according to the horse’s head conformation.


The National Equine Welfare Council have provided some excellent guidance and studies into grazing muzzles and weight loss.
