Centaur Anti Grazing Device

3 reviews

We love the Centaur® Anti-Grazing Device because they are great for children on ponies.  No more grazing while riding. These strong nylon reins are a great aid for youngsters and are adjustable to fit most animals. 

No more children's tug-o-war with hungry ponies! The anti-grazing device applies upward pressure on the bit when the pony puts its head down to prevent grazing while being ridden.

  • The anti-grazing device is made from 3/4'' brown nylon.
  • The crown piece of the device attaches to the pony's bridle with velcro tabs.
  • The reins are snapped to the bit and the dee rings on the front of the saddle.
  • Buckle adjustment on each rein allows device to be used on different size animals.
  • The anti-grazing reins adjust from 35 1/2 to 45 inches
  • Add more holes to make smaller (28 inches)

    Centaur Anti Grazing Device

    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.


    Stops my hungry horse from eating on trail.

    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!

    Great quality, just what I was looking for.

    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!
