Benefits

As grazing animals, horses have digestive systems that are designed to process forage in small quantities over several hours. The Forager Slow Feeder facilitates this in modern horse management by extending mealtimes without frustrating your horse. More time eating equals less time for boredom behaviours and food scarcity stress, especially for horses on restricted diets.


Prolonged chewing produces saliva that protects the horse’s stomach lining from naturally occurring acids. This helps reduce ulcer risk.

The Forager facilitates eating in a lowered-head position. This allows drainage of respirable particles and natural feeding posture in the jaw, neck and back.


Containing hay off the floor keeps it clean and reduces the waste of forage trampled into bedding, manure and urine.

Product Description

Two interchangeable regulator grids – easy and standard – allow individualization for each horse’s needs or to enable a gradual introduction to slow feeding. The regulator clicks on easily and securely for easy filling. Secured to a metal ring on the outside of the cylinder, the grid stays level as it lowers with forage consumption.


The base of the sturdy, durable Forager can be filled with sand for extra stability and fixing points to secure it to the stable wall if desired.

Designed to allow light and air into the cylinder, the Forager encourages horses to eat as nature intended.


Easy to assemble and break down for cleaning and travel.

About Haygain
Haygain began when a group of riding enthusiasts in southern England became concerned about the coughing, nasal discharge, and other respiratory problems they observed in their horses.

They suspected that the airborne respirable particles naturally found in forage were the problem. Soaking hay, the centuries-old method of removing these particles, obviously wasn’t effective. High temperature steaming, on the other hand, appeared to be an excellent option to be looked into.

As the company has grown, we have added other complementary equine health products to our portfolio in keeping with our goal of helping owners to deal with the issues that come with the domestication of horses.

February 2017: Launch of the Haygain Forager, a slow feeder for horses that provides a natural way to slow down the pace at which they eat in order to reduce the risk of colic, gastric ulcers, obesity and laminitis; common side effects from stabling and infrequent eating.

They suspected that the airborne respirable particles naturally found in forage were the problem. Soaking hay, the centuries-old method of removing these particles, obviously wasn’t effective. High temperature steaming, on the other hand, appeared to be an excellent option to be looked into.

Following two years of research and development in cooperation with the Royal Agricultural University, the first manufactured Haygain hay steamer was launched on the equestrian market at the British Equestrian Trade Association Trade Fair in 2009. A UK patent was granted the same year.
