We've used these hay nets for several years for both horses and llamas. They figured out right away how to eat out of the nets -and they nibble and pick at the hay instead of chowing down big mouthfuls. The nets are very durable - the horses stomp on them and pull the nets with their teeth, and I've only had to do a couple minor repairs (extra string is included with each net)
If your horses are wearing shoes, you need to hang the nets up high enough that they can't paw at them (they could hook a shoe) or put the bales inside a feeder. My horses are barefoot so I don't worry about it.
Llamas get the hang of it right away, and it's more of a natural browsing way of eating for them.
These are more expensive than some nets, but they will last way longer that the cheap ones. I still use the first ones I bought five years ago every day, and they have only minimal signs of wear.
