My Appy/Draft gelding is turned out 24/7 in a grass paddock. He is an easy-keeper with a larger head. He has worn a muzzle 20+ hrs./day during grass season, for 3 yrs.I remove & clean it every day, along w/ his fly mask This is the best one that I have found. It fits well I put it on top of the fly mask w/ no chafing. The breathing holes line up well with his nostrils and I no longer worry so much about him over heating on sweltering days. The basket is nicely padded & the rectangular mouth opening is the right size and a better configuration so he can even eat hay with it on. This makes horsekeeping much easier, esp. when we start supplementing all the horses with hay when the grass gets sparse. It does the job of regulating his intake so his weight stays at a safe level. So far, it has proven to be rugged and I should be able to use it hext year. You cant beat the price, other halter/muzzles that are not as good often cost twice as much.

This muzzle fits my QH perectly. It has held up well and is very comaparable to the more expensive grazing muzzles out there.
Grazing Muzzle - great breating space for the horse!
These are great muzzles compared to others we have used. The openings at the nostrils allow for greater airflow for the horses. We have high summer temperatures. The horses keep these on as they are not as hot or confining for them.
Tough 1 Easy Breathe Grazing Muzzle
I purchased a more expensive and heavier grazing muzzle that left rub marks on my horses nose and chin before buying the Tough 1 Easy Breathe grazing muzzle.
I am very pleased with the results of the Tough 1 grazing muzzle. The only rubs my horse got were very small and behind her ears. I added halter tube fleece to the grazing muzzle and that took care of that.
I am also pleased with the amount of grass my horse is getting. She is at an excellent weight and stays out on grass a lot.
The best grazing mask
This is the third type of grazing mask that I have used it is by far the best. They breath easier, fight it less, and it can be left on full-time with no problems and no rubs like other masks. This is a great design and I couldnt recommend it more!! Its a must-have for anyone with an easy keeper.

Grazing Muzzle Easy To Breathe Horse
This muzzle saved my horses life, Mentally and physically. I can not say one bad thing about this muzzle. Even though my mare wears this muzzle every night she has not had any rubbing sores and has NOT been able to rub it off her muzzle like a different muzzle I have tried. Like I wrote already, this muzzle is a LIFE SAVER for my mare.
- K. Gibson, OH
I really love this grazing muzzle. Great product
Great grazing muzzle
This was the 2nd grazing muzzle I used on my mare...the first one didnt last more than a couple months...but this muzzle lasted for 3 grazing seasons. I liked that I didnt have to fit it to her halter to free that up for what it should be used for but with the D ring attachment I was able to lead her in and out from the pasture with it. It was also very comfortable for my mare without the rubbing.
- Nancy, OH
Need smaller sizes
The reviews all sound great but they need to make them in a miniature horse size. I have several that need muzzles and cannot be out on grass without them but this particular product does not have a miniature horse size!!!! Please make one!
- Sue, PA
The muzzle works great
- Sandy Gilliam, IL
Great for the horses with suitable head shapes
Each of the various muzzles available fit some horses great, some not as well or not at all - if possible, borrow and try on a couple before buying. This one has a larger inner diameter than the Weaver and fits my mare well. The nose holes are great for horses that fit the muzzle, tho awkwardly placed on some other head shapes just as the Weaver and Best Friend fit some horses better than others. Fair price, good quality; Im happy with it and my horse is very happy to get it put on for her limited time out on grass each day.
- J, MI
I think a grazing muzzle is the must cruel thing to put on an horse.
easy to breath grazing muzzle
It works well espcially in the hot weather, horse can attain air much better than in the attach to halter kind
Easy Breath Grazing Muzzle
This muzzle has the nostrils cut out which make breathing more comfortable for the horse.The eating hole is rather large,but I use this muzzle for daytime hours and a more traditional muzzle for overnight ,that way I dont worry about getting too much grass.
My favorite grazing muzzle
After trying several grazing muzzles, I am happiest with the Easy to Breathe models. One horse has been wearing hers for 4 months now and it is holding up well. She has not gotten out of it once. It has rubbed her face but that is no fault of the muzzle and I have added fleece halter tubes to correct the rubbing. The fit and durability are as good or better than muzzles with much higher prices. The larger nostril openings are well placed.

Grazing Muzzles Are Awesome....
I had never tried these before this year and I really thought they worked great !!!
- Denise Withrow, OH
I love the Easy To Breathe muzzle - stays on and is durable. I ended up with one for every horse!
Grazing Muzzle easy breathe
Stays on!! Very adjustable. Durably built.
Easy Breath Grazzing Muzzles are Great
These are great grazing muzzles. The are perfect for horses that need to have a restricted diet. They are a lot cooler in hot weather and hold up great.
Excellent Grazing Muzzle
This has worked wonderfully on all of my horses except one! I will call him Houdini... The very overweight easy keepers are getting back to a better weight. Some horses that rub a lot can get it off when they figure out how to pull it off with the help of a friend or using a fence post. I am getting ready to put them on 3 other horses! Great product from Big Dees!!
- TRACEY BURCHELL, KY
I have used this muzzle for 2 seasons now and it works great. I have a mare who is an easy keeper. To solve any issue of her being able to rub it off I simply put a fly mask on over top. She has never gotten it off and there are no rub marks.
- Nancy Ciraldo, OH
This is the first year that I have had to use grazing muzzles on my 2 mares who are very easy keepers. Had 2 of the older regular muzzles but I did not like them at all. I am really pleased with these Easy Breathe Muzzles!! Only problem was, I did have to put them on pretty sung, they are easier to rub off. But i have watch mares closely and they have no rubbed spots on their muzzles and they keep them on about 10 hours a day, due to me being at work all day. The hole on bottom is rectangle and it seems to limit the grass intake just right. It is more opened around the nostril area which should help the mares as the weather gets hotter. My mares have no problem grazing or drinking with them on. I am very pleased. As I stated this is the first time that I have used muzzles so I hope that they will last at least 2 spring seasons, will just have to see.
- Ann, NC
This is a great product. I use the muzzle to keep horses from scraping their teeth on my new trailer. The rubber muzzle guard is great, it wont scrape like the metal muzzles can. Great Product.

Easy to breathe grazing muzzle
Have used a grazing muzzle for several seasons on my prone-to-founder appaloosa. This muzzle is smaller and lighter than the other muzzles I have used, but it is just as durable. It seems to stay on him better maybe because it is more comfortable so he doesnt try as hard to take it off. Great product!
- Tammy, TX
this muzzle is easy on the horse keeps from chewing wood love it
Easy Breathe Grazing Muzzle
Love these grazing muzzles! I have them for all of my minis and my draft pony as well. Love that they allow lots of room for breathing and ventilation, they stay on beautifully and hold up well.
breathe easy grazer
This works great for my sensitive little fat arab who acted like he was dying in the standard muzzle- he does breathe easier in this and much more relaxed. For a more aggresive horse it may not work as they could probably manipulate the openings too much.
- katie, CA
Easy Breathe Muzzle is comfortable
My horse has been wearing this muzzle for three years now. He likes this one the best. The hole is bigger and they can breath better with it.
Pony size not as advertised
I bought 4 horse size and one pony. The pony is not the same muzzle, as the straps across the top of the nose, to keep them from pulling it off, are not on this muzzle and that was my reason for buying it. I am happy with the horse size, but was extremely disappointed that the pony was not as advertised.
- L Shock, IN
The Best Muzzle!
I have 3 different grazing masks and these are by far the best. The horses breath much better and they are tough! I have 4 horses that have destroyed others, but these have been on all summer with no problems. This is the only mask I would ever buy in the future.
- Paula, WV
We had to get a grazing muzzle for our easy keeper mare to limit her grass intake, so she could be out all day with the others. It took her all of 5 minutes to get used to it and be on her happy way! It stayed on and did the job well! I would highly recommend this product, which was suggested to me by my vet!
- Maureen, PA
Best Grazing Muzzle
I have now bought 2 of these easy to breathe grazing muzzles and find they fit better and last longer than the typical round holed ones. Will definitely keep buying them for my easy keepers.
- Lynne, NY
Nice Grazing Muzzle
This is a nice, lightweight grazing muzzle with more breathing space than other muzzles. As durable as the more expensive brands, Best Friend, etc. Like other muzzles, some horses/ponies will find a way to remove them.
Easy Breathe Grasing Muzzle
Love it works great for my mare Gracie. Will buy more in future for my other horse.
- Sandy, WV
Great grazing muzzle
It needs to be strapped on tighter than the Best Friend muzzle or it can be rubbed off. That said, my mare seemed more comfortable in this grazing muzzle. Since she really needs to wear a grazing muzzle I want to be sure she is as comfortable as possible and this muzzle seems to fit the bill!
- Sheryl, IL
I was seriously just going to write the company, J T International about this product because it is so much BETTER than all the rest.... EXCEPT FOR ONE THING...
even though this is a really good grazing muzzle, it could only be improved upon in one area....the top of the muzzle needs a support strap! Maybe I am the only person out there with a very clever horse that can figure out that by dragging his nose on the ground as he walks forward will sooner or later get this thing under his chin! I have owned horses most of my fifty-five years and know how to adjust halters and equipment safely. These grazing muzzles are especially hard to fit because of not wanting to put excess pressure on the pole or too tight against the lips. I have tried a few other types and they all do the same. This Easy Breathe is the best by far and way more comfortable for my horse. He is a black Morgan that is a poster child for the term Easy Keeper of the old bloodlines and I love him dearly. I keep a close watch on his grass intake and this muzzle is the only alternative to a dry lot, especially in the Spring and Fall months.
So, here is my solution. Make a stand alone Easy Breathe Muzzle with four 4 adjustable hook & loop straps that can be attached to a regular leather or break-away halter. This way we can adjust it to fit a already comfortable halter that has a over the nose strap to adjust a fourth strap to keep it from being pushed under the nose. I know this works because thats exactly what I did! I took off all the halter parts that came with it and made one more for the op part and low and behold.... IT WORKS! MY LOVELY PUDGY GELDING FINALLY GAVE UP AND WORE THIS THING DAY IN AND DAY OUT WITH NO MORE HASSLES! I now feel confident turning him out and not having to check on him every 15 minutes to see if he has rubbed it off.
