The Best Friend Cribbing Muzzle allows ponies to eat and drink freely while gently and humanely limiting the damage from a number of undesirable equine behaviors, including:
- Cribbing and/or wood-chewing
- Chewing blankets, bandages or wounds
- Chewing other objects
- Biting other ponies
- Biting themselves
- Biting people
The nylon and aluminum construction is lightweight, rustproof, rot-proof and easy-to-clean. The Best Friend Cribbing Muzzle is padded for comfort and attaches to your breakaway halter with a four-point breakaway system that enhances safety.
The muzzle should be positioned so that the bars run vertically (north and south). To attach the muzzle, loop the four straps over the noseband and chinstrap. (The two side straps may be looped through the halter rings for added stability.) Leave the metal rings in the down position to allow the muzzle to breakaway. The breakaway system will hold in place under normal circumstances, yet will pull apart if a pony panics and struggles to free itself. This feature greatly reduces the risk of injury to the pony. To disable the breakaway feature, slide the metal rings up over the hook-and-loop straps.
Measure up the muzzle depth on your pony and check the circumference at that point. The muzzle should not fit tight but should have a few fingers space between the muzzle and pony. The clip-on grazing muzzle is available in two pony sizes. Use the measurements provided to determine which size would best fit your pony.
Pony Size:(4 1/2'' deep and 20'' in circumference), fits most medium ponies
Large Pony/Cob Size:(5 1/2'' deep, 22'' in circumference), fits larger mediums or large ponies
