Derby Originals is the original inventor of the 4-sided hay bag, U.S. Patent No. D742,078. Super Tough Bottom® is a registered trademark # 6259398.

Our four-sided hay bags are the only bags on the market that allow your horse to freely eat from any part of the hay bag. These patented hay bags are the result of years of careful study and testing to create a design that is attractive, functional, durable, high-quality, and preferred by horses. Our bags are constructed of reinforced nylon webbing that is stronger and more durable than any mesh or fabric hay bag. These bags are designed with cross stitches at every intersection and bartack stitching at all stress points along the top, sides, and bottom of the bag. This hay bag also features our exclusive Super Tough Bottom®: a grid of reinforced nylon webbing that will never rip like solid or mesh bottoms. Our bags are built tough from premium materials and are designed to last for years to come. This hay bag is designed to be a great everyday feeder for most horses and other animals: it measures 19x18x26" and can hold about 7-8 flakes of hay. This hay bag has 1.75” square openings which will prevent hay wastage and slow down their rate of consumption, but still allow for frustration-free feeding. This premium hay bag also includes a 1-year limited manufacturer's warranty offered by Derby Originals.

  • HOLDS 7-8 FLAKES OF HAY - this 19x18x26" hay bag with 1.75" square openings holds approx. 7-8 flakes of Timothy, Orchard, Alfalfa, or any other type of hay. Our hay bags were designed to minimize frustration and can be stuffed in seconds.
  • EXCLUSIVE PATENTED 4-SIDED CONSTRUCTION - this hay bag features Derby Originals patented nylon web design that allows your horse to eat from any part of the hay bag. This design eliminates the risk of material rips and tears found in other hay bags.
  • SUPER TOUGH BOTTOM® DESIGN - our exclusive Super Tough Bottom® is made of reinforced overlapping nylon webbing. This design allows for superior strength and durability while keeping your hay fresh and allowing dust and debris to exit the bag.
  • IMPROVES DIGESTION - horses are designed to spend up to 18 hours a day grazing. Slow feeding allows you to replicate this natural behavior and is recommended by veterinarians to prevent gastric ulcers, colic, and boredom-related behavioral vices.
  • ONE YEAR WARRANTY - this hay bag has a 1-year limited manufacturer's warranty offered by Derby Originals. This warranty covers manufacturing defects. Accidental damage or wear and tear is not covered. Contact the manufacturer for more information.

Slow hay feeder

Very well made. Will hold enough hay for a day feeding one horse. I'm not sure that the velcro on the opening is necessary and I wonder how it will perform over time because velcro tends to pick up lint, etc. But I am happy that my insulin resistant mare can slowly eat all day and not waste hay.

Exactly what I was looking for!

Perfect size, easy enough for the horses to use, and so convenient! So far no issues with durability and they’ve been used consistently since we got them.

Perfect for hay steamer

Bags are perfect to load and unload hay into the steamer. Bought three to keep steamed hay ready for the horses.

Love these slow feeder nets. Much improved since the first ones I bought several years ago. My horses don’t destroy these bags like they did all the other nets I tried.

Excellent hay feeder...took a while to figure out a good way to close it though...

I was looking for an alternative way to feed my horses hay after a visit to the dentist. He was concerned my gelding had tooth absorption issues but the more I thought about it, I was wondering if my feeder had something to do with it. I have the hard plastic rectangular feeders with the plastic grates on top. They've been used for many years for many horses & the grate edges are getting worn with some sharp edges. I still use the base, putting the Derby hay bag inside but leave the plastic grates off. After just a few days, I could see my geldings gums were getting better. No longer swollen & irritated. The soft webbing is perfect for my horses & they hardly have any hay waste. It did take a bit to figure out a good way to tie off the closure though. I feel like there should be a better way to close it but I'm not sure what that is. My first attempts the horses untied the rope closure. Now I daisy-chain it & it seems to be working better for the most part. If anyone has any tried & true solutions I'd love to hear them! Other than that, I'm very happy with my purchase!!

         Return Policy on Horse Blankets / Sheets

         No returns/exchanges on any used Horse Clothing. 

  • Due to hygiene & sanitation reasons, we do not accept returns on any used horse clothing that has been worn by the horse. It is important that horse blankets & body sheets are tried on for a good fit with a sheet underneath it so as to maintain cleanliness. In the event the wrong size has been ordered & the horse clothing does not fit as desired, kindly remove it immediately & request a return via email within 3 days of package delivery at the latest. Returns will not be authorized beyond this time in any case. Refunds will be issued within 2-4  business days of returns after the blanket has been delivered to us & inspected by our returns department.

  • If you need to exchange a blanket for another size, you do not have to wait for the refund. You may simply reorder your blanket in the size desired.

  • Horse blankets & sheets are not guaranteed against ripping & tearing due to the fact that some horses are known to be extremely rough on their blankets, while other horses could get years of use out of their blanket Most tears & rips may be repaired easily at your local repair shop. To help prevent injury to the horse, blanket straps and hardware will break at a certain stress point and are therefore not guaranteed against breakage.

  • Horse clothing that has made contact with a horse is a health hazard and sanitation risk to other customers as well as our employees. All items must be completely new and unused. Any horse clothing that has been used, even if for a brief moment cannot be returned.

Royal International LLC Limited Warranty Terms & Conditions


Royal International, LLC. proudly offers One Year Limited Manufacturers Warranties and Two Year Limited Manufacturers Warranties on select products from the following brands: Derby Originals, Tahoe Tack, Paris Tack, and CuteNFuzzy.


Warranty Eligibility and Registration

Our warranty information is given on individual product cards. We recommend that buyers register their products online so that important information like the product purchase date and the lot number of that product is entered and recorded into our system. The buyer should, if possible, also save the warranty card that came with their product. Doing so will expedite the warranty claims progress.


Product warranties are voided if the product is purchased secondhand or transferred from the original registered owner. A dated proof of purchase must be present at the time a warranty claim is submitted. The warranty only covers the main body of the product and does not cover any replaceable straps, snaps, velcro closures, or other accessories which may be purchased separately. Warranties are only valid for the specified duration, with a start date set as the date of purchase.


In order to register your product online, all you have to do is go to derbyoriginals.com and click the banner on the top of the page that says “Warranty Registration”. There you will be directed to fill out a form with your product and purchase information. Completing this process will greatly speed up the warranty return/replacement process later on, should you need to, so we encourage all buyers to take this extra step.


What our Warranties Cover

Our limited warranties on our products are offered only towards manufacturing defects of the product. Any and all damage to products that are caused by abuse, normal wear and tear, or accidents are not covered. Replaceable parts such as hardware, straps, snaps, and velcro closures are not eligible for warranty coverage and instead, replacement parts can be purchased through us.


We are unable to offer full warranty coverage on most of our products due to the nature of their use: products designed for use with horses and other livestock animals are often at a very high risk of damage by the animal. Minor damage* is to be expected in most cases due to the nature of horses rubbing blankets on fences, chewing on and pawing at hay bags, etc. We will look at each warranty case individually and decide what the best course of action is on a case by case basis.


How to Initiate the Warranty Coverage Process


To claim a replacement on a defective product that is under warranty, you must follow the steps below:


You must call us at (330)494-4066 or email us at sales@derbyoriginals.com and inform us of the warranty defect, and if possible include information such as the vendor you purchased the item from, proof of purchase, your warranty registration information (if you registered the product), and include a description of the damage/defect the item has, or send us photos.


If you are a local customer, you may call us and arrange to bring the defective item into our headquarters to be examined by one of our Tack Experts. Our Tack Experts will examine the item thoroughly and determine whether the item does have manufacturing defects/quality issues, or if the damage is due to an accident, abuse, or normal wear and tear. If the product has minor damage* and is usable with repair, then up to a $20.00 gift certificate will be awarded to the customer to cover the costs of repairing the item, and the warranty will then be voided for the duration of the warranty period on said item.


If our Tack Experts determine that the item in question is not covered by warranty damage, they have the right to refuse repair or replacement coverage. If it is determined that the item is covered by our warranty, then a replacement, or suitable repair will be approved.


Minor damage is defined as repairable damage such as loose stitching, minor rips, tears, or holes, broken replaceable hardware, etc.


If the customer is unable to bring the item in question to our business, then photos of the item in question can be emailed to sales@derbyoriginals.com. Within two business days, one of our tack experts will check these photos, and at their discretion offer up to a $20.00 gift certificate for minor repair, allow for a replacement (either fully covered by us, or partially covered by us), or deny the warranty claim.

By registering your item for a warranty, you agree that all legal disputes are to be filed in the Massillon Court, Ohio only.


Proportional Warranty Values

In the case of hay-holding products such as hay bags, hay nets, or hay bale bags, they are often seen as toys by horses once they are empty, and are chewed on, pawed at, or otherwise damaged. Because of this, they can be worn down very fast or damaged and so although they are warrantied items, they are warrantied at a proportional value. To see these values throughout the entire duration of the warranty period, view our chart below.


Time Since Purchase Proportionate Value Credit For Manufacturing or Material Defects Only

1 month 100% of retail price

2 months 80% of retail price

3 month 70% of retail price

4 months 60% of retail price

5 month 50% of retail price

6 months 50% of retail price

7- 11 months 30% of retail price

11 to 12 months 10% of retail price



*In order to combat warranty fraud, all warranty claims submitted within three days of the end of the warranty period, will be scrutinized very closely. All warranties submitted during that period will only have a 5% proportional value.





Return Policies

If the item in question is found to be damaged by abuse, an accident, or any other non-covered reason, the customer may pick the item up, pay to have it shipped back to them, or have us destroy the item. All replacement items will be shipped out at the customer’s expense, and the shipping costs must be paid before the item will be sent out. If a customer gives us a product to be repaired, the item will be repaired, and then shipped back to the customer at their expense. All warranty items may be picked up for free by the customer at our warehouse location of they prefer. Our pick-up/drop-off details are listed below.
