If pasture isn’t an option:
Freedom Feeder nets are regularly recommended by Veterinarians, Equine Hospitals, Equine Dentists and Equine Nutritionists including Juliet M. Getty, PhD (author of Feed Your Horse Like a Horse) and Chaire Thunes PhD Nutrition, University of California Davis, Summit Equine Nutrition.
Keep your horse moving:
In the wild, horses will travel up to 20 miles per day. This movement is vital to physical and mental health. Creating feeding stations encourages your horses to move from net to net self-exercising and simulating natural behavior. Even in a 12×24 stall, put one at either end of the stall.
A healthy gut is important:
Feeding two, three or even four feedings a day is unnatural for horses. Their sensitive stomachs are empty 2-3 hours after they finish a meal and they become stressed, prone to colic, ulcers, and vices. Scientific studies have shown that horses should have access to appropriate low calorie, high fiber forage at all times.
