"kinda cheap but do the job, these are pony/cob size"
Bought these since was told they are horse size. I think they are more cob size. I have 2 cob size ones called neck stretchers from Dover with inice metal snaps already and these are only 4" longer. Maybe could use on a 15.2h horse but much bigger these would be too tight. These have very very cheap plastic clip snaps on the ends to attach to girth. Bungee is good quality, but snaps are crap and uncomfortable to unsnap. I'd buy a neck strecher with metal snaps somewhere else next time. They work great to set a head and reward horse right away, are good to teach over small fences too to get a nice front end and landing for the hunter ring. And a controlled soft canter too. Great product- just cheap snaps and too short for normal to large horses
Happy with them not only them but Jeffers is the best. 1st par was lost by postal service and they sent 2nd one free of chg. This is why this company is the only one I order me horse products from. They stand behind their name, not too many company s do that this days. Than k you Jeffers.xoxo
"great training aid"
I got my first pair from Germany. I like the way the topline of the horse develops so fast and easy. Horse's nose should be in front of the vertical and the poll just above the withers. Horse learns to work from behind if the lunger/rider asks the horse to go forward and let the neck stretcher do its thing. I ride with it also. Not good for horses that avoid contact.
"Decent, but snap broke on first use"
I bought these to help get my horses working long and low off of pressure (poll & bit). They're decent (not too severe tension) but the snaps are cheap plastic. The adjustment tap (at the poll) also can easily be pulled against by the horse and the reins loosened, so they're not very effective in terms of securing certain degrees of tension. On first use, the plastic snap on one side broke with very little effort when the reins were at their loosest. This means I have to tie off both sides to get equal pressure or switch sides when I lunge. Not ideal. For $11, these are glorified bungee cords.
