Not the best option out there
I got this for my horse because it was the collar everyone else who had a cribber used. And it did work for my horse in that it stopped him from cribbing. However, it stretched out quite a bit, which led to some confusion from the barn staff when I had to keep changing which hole to use. I got the medium for my 15hh horse (who has a big head for his size) and I was starting to wonder if I'd have to punch new holes in it. It also had to be adjusted so tight that it caused rubs on my horse's temples and started rubbing off his forelock (even with the fleece covers!) I switched to the Dare collar (which unfortunately SmartPak doesn't carry) thinking I would rotate between the two to let the rubs heal, but the other collar is SO MUCH BETTER (and doesn't rub). I don't think I'll ever go back to the Miracle Collar. I'd try the French or Nutcracker before going with this one again.

Fits & Works
I bought the Miracle Collar when my other one finally gave out and snapped clean off after 10+years. I can only think of a handful of days that my mare did not wear it, so for it to last that long I was really impressed. The new one seems to have the same quality and I am sure it will last just as long! My mare sure tries to crib, but I don't hear any sucking-wind noise, so the collar is doing its job!

Caught my horse cribbing for the first time not too long ago and bought the Miracle Collar. Haven't put it on him yet, but it seems to be put together very well. Heavy, sturdy leather. Unfortunately, the fleece covers I bought for it seem to be flimsy and relatively cheap when it comes to quality. Best suggestion would be to buy your own high quality fleece and make them yourself. That'll be my next project.

good to a point
got this product for my 16h TB mare. i would consider her an average sized horse and so i got the medium collar. fit her great in the beginning, but i suppose i underestimated the stretching of the leather. she now can get it over her ears and crib, yay... but collar was great first couple of weeks. just feel it may not have been completely worth my money.

A good solution to cribbing
Our pony cribbed and this is the one product that worked to stop him from cribbing. Although we initially didn't like the look of the collar on him, we have gotten used to it. We found that the collar worked, protecting him and preventing damage to fences and his stall. He wears it daily and it has stood up to this level of use. We have been very happy with the quality of this product.
