Busy Buddy Horse Calmer

ThinLine Global announces a new product, the Busy Buddy, a relaxation tool for horses.

BB 001 OpenWe researched a myriad of issues submitted by horse owners, ranging from making daily horse handling such as grooming, farrier work, and leading, easier, and wound up with a product that offers even more amazing help including introducing young horses to the bit.

The Busy Buddy, a drug-free product that produces relaxation in horses immediately and effectively.

Sometimes life for horses can be stressful, and that can also make our lives with them frustrating. It is our mission to make life better for both horse and owner.  What if we could create something that would not only entertain but also relax horses?  Beginning with the mechanics of a pacifier, we developed a tool for horses to experience immediate psychological comfort.


Busy Buddy Halter WEB 1

We began with the Halter Busy Buddy, which simply clips to the upper cheek rings of the halter and runs through the mouth. We saw such phenomenal results we added the Bridle version, which clips to a single ring behind the chin, allowing owners to have a relaxation tool at the ready for any equine moment.


Our 2-year-olds now stand quietly in the cross ties for grooming and bathing,” one racehorse trainer told us.

Another farrier said, “I put on the Busy Buddy for several of my client’s horses who historically wrestle me while shoeing. They immediately relax and chew, and I can safely and efficiently shoe the horses.”


Developed for all horses, young and old, here are just a few things the Halter Busy Buddy and the Bridle Busy Buddy can do.

Halter Busy Buddy Horse Calmer:

  • Stops fretting, biting, and kicking in the cross ties.
  • Provides them 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’ nerves for the vet, without using sedatives.
  • Entertains horses during farrier work.
  • Used while lunging; encourages relaxation of the jaw and muscles over the back.

  • Keeps horses from chewing on those expensive reins!
