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.

"Glorified Muffin Pan"
I wish I could say that the Prevent feeder solved all my troubles but I must say that I found I had better results with a cupcake tray and a large rock than this subpar as seen on TV product. I'm sorry, but there I said what we've all been thinking.
Purchased this for my daughter's horse because he bolted his food ALL the time. Well he did it one too many times and it wasn't pleasant. Since he's had this bucket there has been no more incidences of choking whatsoever. AWESOME PRODUCT, worth every penny.
I love these! Slows down the feed hogs. The horses that eat very slowly I simply put the feed in a large bucket inside the feeder. Anything that gets dropped stays in the feeded. perfect for hay or alfalfa with very little dropped out of the feeder.
I bought this feeder for a gelding that chokea and I had to wet his feed to prevent the choking. This feeder slowed him down and he eats with no choking problem for 1 year now! Excellent product!!
"Not for picky eaters"
I tried this in a barn full of off the track thoroughbreds- some didn't care and ate everything. However, the ones that are not motivated by food don't do the extra work to get whats left on the bottom. My mare, who is not a picky eater, never finishes her grain as she doesn't really want to put forth the extra effort to get whats left in the holes.
Great product! My horse is actually chewing his food, and seems much more relaxed and happy!
This tub is wonderful. Horse is unable to bolt it's food. Saves on vet bills !!
