Jen riding her Absolute Dream at the USEF Festival of Champions

The Savvy Story

Used By USDF Gold Medalist and USDF Diamond Achievement Award Winner, Jen Truett

Dressage trainer and FEI rider Jen Truett, of Lebanon, Ohio, searched for years to find a slow hay feeder that encouraged natural foraging behavior in horses and cut down on wasted hay. Her FEI horse, Absolute Dream (aka “Dreamy”), spreads hay around his stall and dunks it into his water bucket, making a mess every day. Jen never liked how frustrated he got eating from hanging hay nets or how they torqued his neck and made him muscle sore. After he got cast in his paddock and injured his neck, she scoured the internet to find a ground-level hay feeder that wouldn't further strain his neck and was safe for shod horses.
