Unfortuneatly, even cribbing rings won't help the most determined horse. Another boarder at our old barn got a free horse with a cribbing problem. She was very underweight and would crib anything and even choose cribbing to eating. The owner had the vet come out to discuss rings. The vet told her she already put rings on that horse TWICE!

What about a muzzle ? I've seen a muzzle made for cribbers at Jeffer's equine . They can still eat and drink,but not crib .

I think it depends on the horse and the situation...


Collars don't work on some horses. I had a horse in my barn pass out in front of me. (went to put its halter on and it put its head up in the air) passed out.. than started seizing after it fell over. All the muscles tighten when a horse seizes... it would have suffocated to death had I not been there to cut that strap off.


I've had good luck with this in my stalls for cribbers

Yes, all depends on the horse.....this particular horse even cribbed with the muzzle. Plus she would graze less which they didn't want because she was already so thin.

I did ask the vet who does my horse's teeth about these today, but she hadn't heard of them, so didn't have anything to add on whether or not they cause pain when the horse isn't cribbing, are effective, have any other side effects, etc.

I did learn that my horse is missing a bottom incisor, though!
