GreenGuard Muzzle Insert
Made from a soft, pliable material with a curved shape that matches the bottom muzzle surface curvature, these non-toxic inserts simply snap into your GreenGuard muzzle! Reasons you may want to consider using an insert:
- Protect your muzzle from excessive wear and prolong its life
- Have a softer material for your horse's grazing surface (you will still need to check for signs of teeth wear just with in any type of grazing muzzle, but the softer material may help with wear issues)
- Further reduce your horse's intake with the diet insert. Please note this insert is severely restrictive. Make sure your horse is used to grazing without an insert before using.
Insert type: The "standard" insert has the same pattern and size openings as the muzzle. The "diet" insert has 50% smaller holes, and is extremely restrictive. Please make sure your horse is comfortable eating in the muzzle without an insert prior to using. Especially with the diet insert, they could become very frustrated due to severe intake restriction.
Sizes: Available in horse and pony muzzle sizes. No mini size available at this time.
CAUTION: Please ensure your horse is comfortable grazing in the GreenGuard muzzle prior to using inserts, especially the diet insert as it is extremely restrictive.
Here's a thorough introduction to the GreenGuard muzzle insert
Adapt an insert for an old-style muzzle
Here's a tutorial on how to adapt the insert for an old-style GreenGuard muzzle, one without the slots. Even though we created this tutorial, it does involve drilling and otherwise defacing the muzzle body, which will void the 30-day money-back guarantee and the 1-year replacement warranty. Proceed at your own risk.
