What is Cribbing?: Crib biting, also known as cribbing, is when a horse grabs a solid object with its incisors, arches its neck and contracts their lower neck muscles to retract their larynx. This produces a sudden rush of air into the esophagus, causing a grunting noise familiar to cribbing horses. This destructive habit may be caused by boredom or stress, and frequently happens with horses that spend a lot of time in their stalls. It might also be due to discomfort caused by stomach acidity.

How You Can Curb Cribbing � with a Grazing Muzzle or Cribbing Collar for Horses: We stock various styles of grazing muzzles and cribbing collars that can prevent cribbing, chewing and excessive grass intake. There are models from Dura-Tech®, such as their smartly designed breakaway muzzle, which limits grazing but allows unlimited water. These devices are made to be comfortable for the horse as well as highly effective. We also have sheepskin noseband liners for added comfort when used with a muzzle, and sheepskin collar covers for use with the Weaver Leather® Miracle Cribbing Collar. You'll also find grazing muzzles and accessories from Best Friend™.

Solutions for Chewing Horses: In addition to the grazing collars and muzzles, we carry safe-to-use formulas that discourage horses from chewing. These solutions from Ultra® and EQyss can be sprayed on anything your horse is prone to chewing, and it's highly effective in curbing bad behavior, through gentle means.

Kicking and Pawing Cuffs and Chains: Kicking and pawing cuffs and chains can be effectively used in stalls and in trailers to prevent horses from kicking, pawing and pacing. They're made from high-grade harness leather or nylon and stainless-steel hardware. Certain styles include plush fleece for greater comfort.
