Cribbing Collar

I am free-leasing a 12 year old gelding that has to wear a cribbing collar. Can I take this collar off to ride him or should it stay on at all times?

Thank you for your help. I have looked all over to find an answer to this question and can't find an answer.

Hi Kathy,

Yes, be sure to remove a cribbing collar when you ride your horse. Unless you stop your horse at a post or rail along the arena fence, he would be unlikely to be able to crib while he was being ridden. The collar is designed to keep him from cribbing in his stall or pen, but when you are riding, under normal circumstances, he wouldn't be able to find anything to latch onto with his teeth.

Best of luck and keep us posted on your leasing.
