Purchase: I bought this cribbing collar from Valley Vet Supply for $60.00 plus shipping. The genera price runs around $60-$80. I have a paint mare who's been a cribber for the last 11 years. I've tried several different kinds of collars on her, with varied success. The miracle collar did not work, nut cracker collars did not work, and the french cribbing strap did not work. I have a custom cribbing collar that is synthetic that works very well, but it is only available in MO (I live in OH), and also it has to be very tight, which causes her to be rubbed raw on the top of her head and neck. Having a bald horse just looks bad, so I like the idea that this collar could still be effective even if it was worn loosely. Plus it was leather, so ideally it would break if she got it caught on something. Although it is the most expensive collar out there, I figure if it works and therefore saves her from destroying her teeth, it's worth the money.

Likes: The collar does actually do it's job. Once in a while she'll test it to see if it's still effective, and it always dissuedes her. It's not quite as bulky-looking as collars like the miracle collar, and more effective than the french collar, even though it looks similar.

Dislikes: My main complaint is that despite their claims that this collar can be worn much looser than other cribbing collars, this simply wasn't the case with my mare. She has to wear this one just as tightly as any other cribbing collar, so it still rubs her hair off around the bridle path area.

Quality: The leather that this collar is made from is sturdy, high-quality leather that is thick and withstands daily romping. It doesn't seem to loose function or change size or shape being on a horse who spends time rolling in the mud, frolicking in the snow, or standing in the rain. The thickness of the leather makes it rather stiff, which makes it hard to get on and off until it's had some use. That said, the leather isn't cheap. The general design of the collar, though functional, is rather ugly, as there is a wedge that sits just under your horse's jaw that makes her jaw appear more bulky and less refined. Sadly, there is no "attractive" cribbing collar---it's kind of like someone who chews her nails: it's just going to look bad, and it is a vice, but if you can get around that it doesn't make that person any less attractive.

Summary: This collar works well and the product quality impressed me enough for what I paid for the item. However, I was a bit disappointing that my mare could not wear this collar more loosely than its predecessors, mostly because I don't like a bald horse.
