You will NEVER get this horse to quit cribbing, but you can try to help her slow it down. I've seen horses crib on the side of doors, metal fences, trees, etc
LOTS of turn out in a large area. Using a 2 or 3 foot pieces of wood make the electric fence stick out so she can't get by the wood. Put the wire across the gate too. McNasty or hot sauce on the spots that she finds to crib on. Take out all the feed buckets and replace them with pans. Drop the water buckets low by her knees.
Now when you make it extremely difficult to crib by taking away, blocking off, or making it gross you HAVE TO give her something to do!!!!!!! Turn out, turn out, turn out! You'd crib too if you were locked in a stall. Lots of hay, give her some friends (especially playful ones if she will tolerate them), and horse toys. The toys I love are The Amazing Graze and Uncle Jimmy's hanging balls, lik-it's are pretty good too. You can throw small apple pieces, carrots, cherrios, etc in the amazing graze. Cheaper things may be apple's on a rope hung on a tree branch, just make sure they can't pin it against something (same with the Jimmy ball). Getting her tired could also help, she will hopefully want to rest more then crib.
