Hay I have yet to see a horse that doesn’t love a slow feeder hay net. These hay bags/nets with small openings offer stalled horses hours of entertainment and relaxing chewing time. They mimic a show horse’s non-existent grazing time and are a must have stress buster for horses of all ages. There are a variety of sizes and styles to choose from, most now offered in a mini version. Tip: Horses love the challenging and ripping action of pulling their hay through the smaller slow feeder holes. You can throw these into the horse’s stall for hours of activity. Harness and Bridle Storage Your harness and bridle can become a tangled mess when it isn’t stored properly. A hanging harness bag is a necessity for both at home and on the road. Quilted, and custom sized harness bags can be purchased at most mini tack shops, but in a pinch, you can also make your own with a garment bag and a small folding tack rack. Keeping your harness covered when not in use will help protect it from blowing dust and dirt. 66 Miniature Horse World JUNE/JULY 2013 Tip: You can neatly wrap your bridle in a figure-8 style to keep straps from being twisted and to help the bridle keep its shape. Hang the bridle by the crownpiece on a hook. Take the throat latch and wrap it counterclockwise around the bridle and one and a half times and slip the end through the keepers. (Don’t buckle it.) Then take the noseband and wrap it once around the bridle and fasten it in the front by slipping the end through the keepers.
