Based in Durham, North Carolina, GG Equine is the exclusive North American distributor (U.S. and Canada) for GreenGuard Grazing Muzzles. We have worked hard to bring these grazing muzzles across the pond from Europe, where they have been available for 15 years, and to educate folks about their unique design. Why are we so passionate about these muzzles?
After finding my "houdini" horse with his basket muzzle anywhere but on him, I gave up on traditional grazing muzzles. On a good day the muzzle would still be on him, even if it was in his mouth rather than covering it. But most of the time, I had to go looking for it in a 15-acre pasture. I know a lot of you can relate!
A friend introduced me to the GreenGuard Grazing Muzzle, which she was using on her foundered mustang. I was skeptical about its shape, size, and all the holes. But after seeing how well it worked for her notorious muzzle escape artist, I decided to give it a try and it was truly a night and day difference!

From then on, my horse NEVER again tried to get his grazing muzzle off. He also didn't mind anyone in the barn putting the grazing muzzle on him, whereas he used to turn away, give you the stink eye, or sulk. And when he was grazing he acted like he wasn't even wearing anything!
Not only was he much more comfortable, he actually lost weight too! It was bananas. In my 30 years of being an equestrian, I had never seen results like that from a single product. I became a GreenGuard evangelist; any chance I got, I would tell people about these grazing muzzles.
Eventually, I quit my day job and decided my new job was going to be bringing these muzzles to North America. That was several years ago now. Since then, I've been so happy to see many horse owners experience the GreenGuard difference for themselves.
Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of horses that must wear a grazing muzzle, with the belief that horses out on pasture are happier than those confined to a stall.
