PRE-VENT Feeders patent pending design was specifically created to increase feed time by slowing down the rate at which a horse ingests its feed. The “compartments” or “cups” at the bottom of the feeder eliminate the possibility of bolting, thus reducing the risk of choke. The design encourages the horse to keep its head down in a natural feeding position, as the horse must work to get the feed out of each of the compartments with its tongue and lips, one cup at a time. This simulated “grazing” effect along with proper chewing can increase the amount of saliva produced by the horse, helping to start the digestion process. This reduces the chance of your horse dropping food on the ground and in turn reduces the ingestion of sand, dirt, or parasites.
PRE-VENT Feeder also prevents food aggression, as the horse is no longer focused on anything else. Made in the USA out of heavy-duty UV protected polypropylene so PRE-VENT feeders® are virtually indestructible. For optimal results and to prevent tipping; PRE-VENT feeders® were designed to be fastened in the corner of a stall or on a fence post in the pasture or paddock.
Important Note: If your horse chokes while eating, the large feeder is recommended.

"Love this feeder for my horse prone to choke"
We have a horse who has choked several times while eating grain. She is an aggressive eater who gulps her food. We tried river rocks in her feeder on the vet's suggestion, but she just threw them out. This works! She hated it at first. But she has even figured out how to eat fairly quickly with this but she has not choked since we installed it. Very thankful to not be having to deal with choke frequently anymore.
"Works great unless your horse is too smart!"
This worked great for about a week until my gelding figured out if he knees the bottom of the feed them it will pop the food from the small holders into the bigger ones. It still slows him down but now he's banging on the feeder at every meal.
"Truly slows down grain consumption"
Your horse will HATE it at first. But that's because it is doing it's job of slowing them down. Be patient and let your horse try to figure it out. They will need to learn to be patient, too, and use lips and tongue to eat. It does require cleaning out more often as some grain mush can accumulate in the bottom of the cups. If a flat feeder on the ground just doesn't slow your horse enough, this feeder is worth a try!
"Slows them down..."
Works great to slow down our horses from eating their food way too fast! Searched a long time.to find them...
Bought this for my 29 year old Quarter Horse because he was eating his food too quickly. It doubled his eating time! My friend is going to buy one now that she saw how well it works!
Just had my horse feed from this tonight. Definitely slowed him down and he even went back to lick it clean! Do you make a stand/cradle for this? The hardware is for stall feeding but he doesn't eat in a stall...
"Changed my mind - great customer service!"
I initially left a negative review after receiving poor customer service. I was immediately contacted by Jeffers and they apologized for the previous incident and made the situation right -- that's all you can ask for. Very much appreciated, thank you! You have renewed my faith in your company and won me back as a customer.
"Poor customer service"
I was disappointed in Jeffers customer service. I ordered 4 of the large Pre-Vent feeders online and at the time of purchase the website said the hardware was being included for free. It was not included in my delivery and they did not honor the offer, saying it wasn't posted on their site. I purchase for the mammal department at a large zoo and will probably not purchase from here again.
I was told by previous owner of my mare, that she could not eat pelleted horse feed. They had tried and she choked. I only feed pellets with quality hay. Purchased the Pre Vent feeder and no problems!!!!
I bought this feeder for my boy who, since I have had him, has been so tense while eating, especially in his neck and back. He was always "stressing" over eating so I gave this bucket a shot. Once he figured out the wells in the bucket he relaxed and started taking his time to chew. I really think this bucket is a must have for not only horses who choke, but any horse that either rushes or is tense during feed time. Can't wait to get one for the new mini we rescued too!
"Pre-vent original (Black) Horse Feeder"
This is by far the best horse feeder product on the market. I purchased four of them. My gelding that destroys buckets and bolts his feed to get everyone else's now eats relaxed with his head down. My other gelding that was notorious for dumping feed all over the ground no longer is able to toss the food from the bucket and also eats quietly with his head down. One of my mares would bolt her feed and choke but not anymore! My other mare no longer bolts her feed also. Thank you Pre-vent feeder! You are inexpensive compared to the potential vet bills that can be incurred....
This feeder is a life saver. My older gelding had a severe choking problem when eating grain. He has been using this everyday for the past two weeks with no issues.
"Wish it was available!"
I absolutely LOVE my pre-vent feeder. I purchased one from Jeffers about a year ago, and it has worked fantastically for my mare who would bolt her feed and waste a ton by dropping half of it. I had checked her teeth, and tried everything, but buying this feeder is what finally slowed her down. I love that I don't have to worry about her choking, and she wastes so much less! I now have a horse here that I board who needs one, have tried muffin tins, rocks, dog bowls, everything I can think of
"Pre-vent Feeders work!"
Muffin tins and rocks are no comparison for the Pre-vent Feeder. This horse feeder is a premium product that works well and does exactly what it was designed to do. Who would put rocks in with their horses feed? What a foolish idea?! Muffin tins? Yea because a horse can't grab that and dump the food out! Please, folks its all been tried. Pre-vent Feeders work for every horse.
