Using a shock collar or any other "training tool" to make a horse quit cribbing is just unhumane. Cribbing can not be "healed" and shocking or beating a horse will not break the habit. It can be surpressed (cribbing collar, surgery, an environment without any place to crib on), but not stopped by training. Pawing and such things - different story. I am not all against the shock collar, I don't believe in the "broke and shocked the horse for hours"-story, however, it is a very strong tool in the wrong hands.
