Does your horse crib?  Check out this new study.

Randi Thompson's comment, June 11, 2013 10:18 AM
is there anything that really works for this? A client just purchased a new horse. We were told it was a light cribber... Well, it cribs all the time even with the newer Dare cribbing collar. This is a very nice horse and is now getting lots of turn out in a field where he is also cribbing on the fences!

Phew...good question....from a bodywork point of view I have used acupressure and massage to release tension in the affected areas....others have suggested checking with an equine nutritionist and check for stressors in the environment....as yo uknow it is tough to break the pattern....

Chazot a OTTB horse shares his view with trainer Jean Luc Cornille. Equine Humor and science
Helyn Cornille's insight:

On the racetrack, I enjoyed the respites, but rests were in fact healing periods before the next set of micro fractures and lactic acid imbalance. The racing industry believes in the afternoon nap. In large racing stables, there is no activity at all after lunch. We are supposed to rest and enjoy our nap. In fact we are all standing or lying in our stalls, letting our body heal from the damages of the morning work. Many of us get bored and annoyed by this lack of activity and physical discomfort and find something to do in the stall. I believe that this is why so many thoroughbred horses fall for addictive habits such as cribbing.

Imitation verses Intelligence

The other aspect of the horse’s mental processing works against proper coordination. The horse lives in the moment. He instinctively protects muscle imbalance, or morphological flew, or protective reflex contraction or other issue.
Helyn Cornille's insight:

Since centuries great masters have warned against what they refer to as the false practice. “Unfortunately, it is definitively much easier to turn to false practice than to achieve what is correct.” (François Robichon de la Gueriniere, Ecole de Cavalerie, 1731)  The question is, WHAT IS CORRECT? Classical trainers think that they are correct. Competitive riders believe that they are correct. The German school thinks that it is the only correct way, so does the British, French or Spanish school. They all miss the point. What is correct is the ability of educating and coordinating efficiently the horse’s physique for the athletic demand of the performance and since knowledge of the equine physiology evolves, “what is correct” does evolve. In terms of collection for instance, “what was correct” fifty years ago is archaic in the light of new knowledge.

Helyn Cornille's insight:

German scientists have succeeded in transplanting a key gene that codes for the zebra's stripes into a dog - to produce the world's first litter of striped pugs. The researchers say they have been inundated with requests to buy the transgenic animals, which will inevitably be a surefire hit with breeders and owners looking for something completely different.
