HAY BAR SOLVES THE PROBLEM

The problem being how to feed horses forage as
  ‘NATURE INTENDED’
from the floor and in a manner, which is
‘FAR EASIER FOR YOU AND FAR BETTER FOR YOUR HORSES’

The HAY BAR system was originally devised to help a show hunter brood mare suffering from pneumonia.  It encouraged her to eat from the floor and as a result helped drain down her airways.  The mare recovered and we soon realised the HAY BAR system had numerous advantages.

HAY BAR aids digestion as the forage is taken more slowly.  HAY BAR saves waste, as the forage is far less likely to mix with the bedding.  Mares, foals and youngstock benefit, as the HAY BAR is far safer than nets or racks.  HAY BAR is quicker and easier to fill (even by a small child) and hence saves precious time.

 Raylia Dugmore, breeder and producer of hunters and riding horses to Horse of the Year standard, has designed the HAY BAR which is manufactured from HDPE.  It has proved in field trials to be strong durable and very practical.  The reaction from a  number of knowledgeable contacts is that HAY BAR is the way forward and a much needed addition to equestrian products.

The show and dressage worlds appreciate that this method of feeding improves top line as the upper neck muscles become more developed due to the natural feeding position.

 This all helps to explain the company slogan FEED AS NATURE INTENDED – FAR EASIER FOR YOU AND FAR BETTER FOR YOUR HORSES.

Following extensive field trials Raylia has formed Park Feeders Ltd, of North Yorkshire to develop and market HAY BAR
