The Best Friend™ Cribbing Muzzle
A Best Friend Cribbing Horse / Pony Muzzle – A Safe, Gentle and Humane Way to Help Control your Horses Cribbing / Curbing. A Cribbing Muzzle to fit your own safety breakaway halter.
The Best Friend Cribbing Muzzle attaches to your own leather or breakaway halter with four adjustable hook-and-loop straps. To attach, loop the four straps over the noseband and chinstrap. (The two side straps may be looped through the halter rings for added stability). Leave the metal rings in the down position to allow the muzzle to breakaway. To disable the breakaway feature, slide the metal rings up over the hook-and-loop straps.
