Horse Anti-Chew Products

If you are new to horse ownership then it may come as a big surprise when your horse tries to chew wooden rails. This is actually a common behaviour and is known as cribbing.

Cribbing in Horses

Cribbing is often the result of boredom and anxiety. It can result in damage to the stable and fences and can lead to horses wearing down their teeth. It can also result in an enlargement of horses’ throat muscles.

How to Prevent Cribbing

You can tackle the issue of cribbing by improving your horse’s environment. If they have interesting distractions then they will be less likely to chew. Toys are a good option as they will keep your animal entertained. You could also consider introducing a small hole haynet. These clever accessories regulate the volume of food which horses can consume whilst giving them access to feed for hours. They can content themselves feeding without the risk of gaining too much weight. If anxiety appears to be behind your hore’s chewing then introduce calming supplements to your horse’s diet.

Anti-Chew Products

Naturally it also helps if you can spend more time with your horse but if that isn’t possible then anti-chew products can really help. These ointments and sprays make the wood less palatable so your horse will steer clear of it. They work in the same way as the products you can purchase to stop yourself from biting your nails. The Equi Supermarket range features excellent anti chew products from Natural Animal Feeds (NAF) and Hydrophane which will certainly do the trick.

If you enrich your horse’s life by providing more company and distractions you should be able to reduce its tendency to chew wood. Anti-chew products will also help greatly and are inexpensive solutions that it is well worth keeping at the stable.
