My husband used this device on his mustang today who is in the terrible habit of eating while being ridden. That habit has become impossible to deal with. BUT this device solved the problem very well. He was happy with the results of using it and his horse figured out that he couldn't get his head to the ground anymore. It is a much better of dealing with this problem that trying to pull his head up all of the time.
My horse has an awful habit of trying to eat grass on trail, especially going downhill. I feel I'm strong but not strong enough for his determination to eat. The anti-grazing device solves the problem. He has finally learned he is not to eat when he is 'working.' He may not be happy but I am!
My seven year old son is starting to ride my 14.3 half arab mare, who has the very bad habit of diving for grass every chance she gets. Being so young and inexperience he lacks the strength and the seat to not get yanked out of the saddle when she does this. I was worried about other anti-grazing devices since they were all advertised for ponies and I saw several that were made with what looked like a single strap that attached to the top of the bridle. This one has Velcro tabs to attach a cross piece to the bridle, and two individual reins that attach to the bit and the saddle dees. The reins are very adjustable. We have them all the way out and they fit somewhat loosely, allowing her to stretch, but not reach the ground. I love that it can be unsnapped so easily. The hardwear and reins have very sturdy construction and so far, it's working like a charm! -just a note on this- I got advice from another horse person who had used a similar device who told me to buy Dee savers since she had seen horses pull the dees out of the saddle. Very good advice!
