As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Looking for a muzzle that is lightweight and humane, yet allows your horse to eat freely?

The Cribbing/Free to Eat Muzzle Limits unwanted behavior, such as cribbing and biting, not eating and drinking.

Ultra-lightweight aluminum grill and nylon webbing is resistant to rust, rot and mildew. The Cribbing/Free to Eat Muzzle has a comfortable padded noseband with four-point attachments to prevent pivoting and rotating. Muzzles fit most halters.

    Cribbing/Free to Eat Muzzle is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wasn't enough for my persistent cribber... This product fits well and is light weight. Even so, my very persisitent cribber got around the aluminum bars and just cribbed through the nylon after wearing it for 5 minutes. Shortening the fit didn't help either. If your horse is persistent like mine, try the Dare cribbing collar or the steel cage muzzle. Steel cage muzzle is heavier, but much less restrictivefor eating and breathing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best grazing muzzle The traditional muzzle is hot and the small hole in the bottom of the muzzle only frustrated my horse. This is the most humane way to manage my horses weight. I am so glad my veterinarian recommended this type of muzzle

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, strong velcro, solid design, no rubs Bought this about 3wks ago for my incessant cribber (we also have a miracle collar, cribox, a Dare collar, plenty of history of workups, supplements, special diets, full turnout, all the hay she wants, and work 4 days a week--none of which have stopped her). She's like a new (happier) horse after a couple weeks w/o cribbing. She doesn't mind wearing this, it hasn't rubbed her (She is a 15'3"Oldenburg, built like a tank, with a head to match; I ordered her the XL size), and fits well to a regular halter (I have a Perri's) and so far has stayed in place. She cannot crib in it (on her water bucket, on the fence, on the waterer, on the stall wall). We did learn to put the muzzle on with the bars parallel to the length of her face, b/c if they are transverse, she can still figure out how to get to the fence boards through it to try to crib. I did note one of the bars bent slightly, but I'm hoping she won't break anything for a long time. Will update if she does. She can drink water by pushing her face against the muzzle, turning it a slight bit to an angle, and getting down into our square shaped auto waterers enough to drink (IOW's, the whole muzzle doesn't fit inside the tank opening, but she can easily drink using her technique). I do worry about cold weather (we at at 15 deg right now) and eating and drinking through cold metal, but so far she doesn't look like that's an issue. If it seems to stop her or slow her down, I'll switch back to the less effective Dare collar for cold days. But for now, we are happy with this answer!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horse figured out how to crib I am deeply disheartened and extremely disappointed that this device didn't work. Within one week my horse figured out how to press the metal grill against a fencepost and crib on the inside edge of the metal surrounding the grill. My horse is 18 years old and has been cribbing since he was 3, so I have tried every device on the market. I hate seeing him so miserable, because the neck devices have to be so tight that he gets rub sores and he has to keep his head lowered all the time just to breathe easily. I was so hoping this would be a more humane device for my horse, but it didn't work, and I wish I could get my money back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cribbing Free muzzle works My OTTB is a cribber. With this muzzle he could not crib and, after some equine learning, became quite proficient at eating and drinking. I would not leave my horse with aggressive horses or horses who might be attempting to move up on the pecking order. The cribbing was eliminated when out to pasture and in the stall. Recommend having two halters, one for the cribbing muzzle and one for supervised grazing. That said, it is easy to attach and remove. Had it 3 weeks...no issues with sturdiness.
