Grazing muzzles are an ideal way of limiting your horse's grazing. You may find a grazing muzzle useful if your horse or pony is prone to laminitis or is overweight. The muzzle will restrict his intake of grass and he will still be able to be turned out. A good fit is essential or your horse may be able to remove it! Introduce the muzzle gradually to ensure that your horse is able to eat and drink with it on. You can get him used to it by putting it on in the stable first, just for a very short time, offering your horse a treat through the hole when you put it on and when you take it off. Next you can lead your horse out in the muzzle and offer him grass through the hole by hand. He will soon get used to it. Do not leave the muzzle on all the time, it should be removed and the horse stabled to ensure he is getting adequate fibre to keep his gut working properly. If you remove the muzzle while he is still out grazing you may find that he will gorge once it is removed. There has been an investigation completed by Dengie regarding the effects of using a grazing muzzle here is the link to this study http://www.dengie.com/pages/feed-advice/article-library/efficacy-of-grazing-muzzles.php
