CRIBBING (WIND SUCKING) COLLAR
Sizes - FULL, COB, PONY
This should be adjusted up nice and flush with not a lot of room but not being unfair.
Remember that it loosens when they put their Head down to eat or drink,

THE O'LEARY BUCK STOPPER
There are all sorts of Buck Stopping systems on the Planet, MOST CRUEL and especially the thin rope above the top Teeth!!
We have been experimenting with this for Years and looking for a comfortable and kind option. We have successfully trialed this and believe anyone with a ‘Suspect, Girthy, Problem or Green Horse should own one. Think about your life, your health, your mortgage, and the possibility of being in a wheelchair.
After 12 months of testing here are just 2 examples.....Horse 1: was a Clients Horse that Bucked hard when the Buck Stopper was taken off but fine with it on. (during starting)
