The Dare® Cribbing Control Collar
Designed by professional horseman Rusty Dare, the DARE Cribbing Control Collar controls even the worst cribbers. The durable leather allows for less tightening than other cribbing collars. The unique patent-pending design keeps the collar in place with a single strap.
The collar will loosen when the horse drops its head to eat, so it is recommended to check the fit at the horse's normal cribbing position. The fit of the collar should be checked and adjusted over time to endure the best results.
- Brand: Schutz Brothers
- Type: Cribbing
Works the best of any on the market
I don't usually write reviews, but I like this collar so much that I made it a point to write a review on it. We have a 14 year old cribber. When we bought him, the previous owners had a french style cribbing collar on him. It helped to control his cribbing but he still cribbed. We bought this Dare Cribbing Collar and he does not crib at all while wearing it. He knows when he doesnt have it on though, because he will go straight to crib...so we leave it on him at all times. Hopefully, with time, he will break the habit completely! I highly recommend this collar!
"Works Well, But..."
His paddock mates think that it's a chew toy, and soon the neck strap is stretched beyond a usable length. I'm now buying my third one. It would be helpful if they would modify it so that the strap ends could be inaccessible to other horses and/or provide replacement straps for purchase.
"Best cribbing collar on the market"
Love it. I buy one for every horse that comes in that cribs.
"Works Great for my Horse!"
I have a large warmblood mix paint. He sucks wind and it's very irritating, not to mention bad for him. I have used the other major brand of cribbing collar in the past, which worked, but was a real pain to put on and take off. He has sensitive ears so it was a battle getting it on. He also tried to rub it off on things. The Dare collar works great for my horse. It is easy to put on and take off, once the leather softens a bit. I don't have to cinch it up really tight but it doesn't come loose or move around, even when he rolls. He doesn't even seem to know I'm putting the Dare collar on. It works great for me and my horse.
This collar will not work on my horse. Had to go back to my old one
"Dare cribbing collar "
This collar will not work on my horse Guess I will go back to the old one Very unhappy
didn't have to put it as tight as a normal collar but still tighter then I like. only works if your horse cribs down, not if they crib on the top boards. is getting pretty torn up by the other horses in his field, only had for 2 months.
"It works "
We've used other collars for cribbing and our mare would still crib. She doesn't with the Dare collar.
"This is for all horses. "
I was so excited to get this collar in the mail! I have a 14 yo mustang gelding that I have been trying to end this horrible habit with ... he has been through a few collar & cribbed through them. This collar was recommended to me by a few people , I tried it and it didn't work . You do have to have it tight for it to even semi work , he still cribs with it on but not as long as he normally would. He is out 24/7 & still try's , have one more collar to try & if it doesn't work.... gonna get a shock training collar & bark collar for him.... yes that works too. I have had people tell me it does work & they have broke the horses habit.
Horse was like a rescue just given away. Not know how long he had been cribbing, probably a long time. Cribbing collar is helping, has not totally quit, but not pulling as hard. To me is a big plus. Aftering having to replace fence several times or just working fence post a loose. So it really works if catching the horse at an early stage the better. I would suggest this to anyone.
"Did not work at all"
I was so excited to receive this in the mail. I was really hoping this would work since I've tried everything out there and nothing has worked yet alas, this didn't work either. My horse has figured out how to avoid getting at the angle of which this is supposed to stop so the whole point of this collar does nothing for my horse. Very disappointed since there have been so many good reviews.
"So far so good"
I have been using the miracle collar for years, but after constant rubs and lesions on my horse I had to take it off for the wounds to heal. Kind of defeats the whole purpose. Bought the dare collar. I have had it a week. It works, looks a lot better and no more wounds on my horse. I recommend this, but it still needs to be snug to be effective.
I reluctantly ordered this Dare crib collar, thinking it would be yet one more cribbing investment that would not work for my long term cribbing fanatic...but it worked! Beautifully! The mare has stopped cribbing...even when it is off during her turnout (not sure how--but she has)! It does not have to be tight, and has not irritated her skin...a great benefit. I am ordering another for another cribber in the barn.
"Best Cribbing collar EVER!!!!"
Tried three other cribbing collars before I found the Rusty Dare collar. SO Thankful I found this collar, it is the only one that actually works for my horse! My horse has worn his for three years, super happy with this product! THANK YOU FOR MAKING IT!
