The idea of the Harmany Muzzle is simple—make it as durable as possible, as light as possible, and as breathable as possible! Other designs have relied on heavy-duty straps, making them uncomfortable, hot, and very heavy. How would you feel about making your horse wear those heavy, hot rubber buckets that rub their noses every day?
Before the Harmany Muzzle, the only alternatives to those heavy grazing muzzles were to either let your horse overeat and develop serious consequences, like laminitis, or lock your horse up in a dry paddock. Thankfully, the Harmany Muzzle is now an option!
Harmany Muzzle Founder Dr. Joyce Harman
Harmany Muzzles are made of a thermal, medical grade plastic, which means they’re moldable to your horse’s head shape. They’re also more breathable than other muzzles on the market, offering 50 percent more breathing room than traditional muzzles, and the Harmany Muzzles are manufactured with DuPont™ Kevlar® fibers, making them extremely durable.
There are also extra holes available on the sides so you can be creative and add zip ties, baling twine, small straps of latigo leather or anything else you need to create a muzzle for the “Houdini” type horses that try to escape.
Customize your Muzzle
Make spot adjustments to completely customize the muzzle to your horse’s head shape. For example, if a rub spot appears, just heat the area and bend it away from the skin. If a cup needs to be made for the chin, heat that area and bend it out away from the chin. If it rubs on the cheekbones, bend the sides away from the face.
