Cribbing lesson horse!

So my " lesson horse" Calvin is a bad cribber! Is there any thing I can do to help his owner get him through this? Thanks!

Cripping is very tough to stop. Have you ruled out any health issues? Like ulcers, or is he stalled a lot?

You can also buy cribbing straps that can sometimes prevent it but not always. Where does her primarly crib at?

Calvin is a ex show horse, if that helps he like to eat the shed of the chicken coop. I have heard you can use soap too.

Lots of time, it can be a nutrient definecy. Is he wind sucking? WHen he pulls back is he sucking in wind? If not, he maybe wood chewing. That is a little easier to stop. Farnman's Quitt is supposed to work and if not, money back guarentee.

Just jump it!!

Is he chewing or cribbing/wind sucking? Big difference between the two.

if this horse is anything like my friends then soap will not stop it. It can stop them from doing it on certain objects, but if they really want to do it they will find something to crib on. My friends horse just moved on to stumps, the water container and she will even crib off her pasture mate! All she needs to do it is something to put her mouth on. The only thing that may work is a cribbing collar.

If it is cribbing, which is wind sucking, then the weaver miracle collar works wonders!

If it is wood chewing, then quitt helps to slow it down. When I used quitt it helped them to stop chewing in the stalls, but if I tied them somewhere they were right back at chewing at the post they were tied to. If it is just pure bordem causing the chewing, I would find him something to do to take up the excess time. Maybe extra hay, a toy, more workouts...etc

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!

The difficult thing about cribbing is most of the time you can't make them stop especially if they have been doing it for a while. My mare I used to lease cribbed and the only way we could prevent her from cribbing is from a cribbing collar. You could also try things like putting hot sauce on everything he can crib on, but cribbing collars work the best in my opinion.
