Developed for all horses, young and old, here are just a few things the Halter Busy Buddy and the Bridle Busy Buddy can do.  Both provide instant drug-free relaxation!

The Busy Buddy horse calmer is the perfect way to encourage your horse to relax in a variety of situations without having to use supplements, medications, or techniques such as twitching.

How the Busy Buddy for horses works

Historically we work our horses until they relax.  Now we can relax our horses and then begin work.

When horses are relaxed we can see gentle chewing, licking, or saliva which looks like foam.  Properly activating the jaw generates relaxation throughout the horse’s entire body and brain.

The Busy Buddy stimulates the relaxation process in all horses. We believe this is the most profound product for the health and well-being of horses introduced to the equestrian world.

Halter Busy Buddy:

  • Stops fretting, biting, and kicking in the cross ties.
  • Provides horses with a relaxing toy during clipping and grooming.
  • Gently introduces the sensation of a bit in the mouth while encouraging relaxation and chewing.
  • Pacifies horses’ for the vet, without using sedatives.
  • Entertains horses during farrier work.
  • Used while lunging; encourages relaxation of the jaw and muscles over the back.

 Busy Buddy Halter Size Adjuster:

Add this headstall size adjuster to create the perfect easy fit with your Halter Busy Buddy.  Clips fit onto the convenient rings, one-handed cord keeper allows you to adjust the size.  *No halter is needed when using the additional size adjuster.

Bridle Busy Buddy:

Is specially designed to be used with a bridle and a bit.

  • Young horses learn to relax and “chew” when introducing the bit.
  • Older horses relax their top-lines faster when warming up.
  • Entertains your horse while standing around at horse shows.
  • Relaxes them on trial rides for a better experience.
  • Lunging in a bridle? Add the Bridle Busy Buddy for more relaxation.

Bridle Busy Buddy arrives with 2 different attachment styles. We have found the position of the Busy Buddy can have a large effect.  Some horses respond really well to the higher position (with the S hooks) and some like it lower.  Play around with it and discover where your horses’ sweet spot is!

    Busy Buddy

    Love this product. Purchased the one for halter. I have a very mouthy, nippy Arabian. Entertained him while I groomed him. I would recommend it for mouthy horses.
