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.

"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!
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!!!!
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.
