Purchase: I ordered it on-line from Tri-Tronics and paid about $375. I bought it because my gelding was double barrel kicking any horse who came up behind him at feeding time. The herd of 25 gathers at the gate about an hour before being put in their stalls, and he became the gate keeper, kicking even his buddy.
Likes: It worked! My son and I first tested the strengths on our bare arms and he could go up to a 3, but said it smarted. So I set the level at 2 considering the geldings thick winter coat. I followed the directions, allowing him to wear the collar for 3 days before I turned it on. On the day I planned to "stimulate" him, I had to do it 4 times. Its been a week now, and he hasn't kicked. You can tell he wold like to, but he just moves away instead.
Dislikes: I had to turn it on and off at the collar. The remote on/off does not work. They are sending me a new one at no charge, but I haven't received it yet. Also, you have to be facing the side of the horse where the unit is, so it takes a little thought as to where to place the unit or where to stand.
Quality: Very sturdy. Comes in a sturdy case. 30 day money back guarantee - can't beat it!
Summary: This worked for me. If it hadn't, I would have had to move my horse to another barn, or separate him from the herd completely. What he was doing was dangerous. Everyone at the barn was surprised it worked, and it did so that fast.
Usefulness Rating: 2.75 out of 5.
