I actually read (not sure it's true or not) that the diet mainly of oats somewhat reduces the cribbing.
Unfortunately it is true that those collars don't work very well or for very long for the most part.
I've heard the same thing about diet so that should be something you may want to look into. I've also heard that sweetfeed increases the desire.
Cribbing is like a drug to a horse and not only is it addictive (it releases endorphins) it is also contagious. Sooner or latter other horses are liable to pick up the habit.
Last summer I bought a very well trained mare that I brought back to the owners when I discovered that she cribbed. Most horse people will avoid a cribber at all costs and at auctions it is necessary to announce it to prospective bidders.
