Remote Controlled Eledtronic Training Collar For Horses
ViceBreaker Inc.'s electronic "shock" collar is the brainchild of an equine veterinarian and a trainer/breeder. They say it'll cure bad habits such as stall and barn chewing, cribbing/windsucking, aggressiveness, pawing, etc. It only takes a time or two.
The device consists of a leather collar with double-sided rivets that come apart if the horse ever gets hung up. Weighing only 3 oz., it's equipped with a waterproof radio receiver that's activated by a hand-held remote control unit about the size of a pager.
To use, you simply press the button on the transmitter when you witness your horse practicing undesirable behavior. It receives immediate, but harmless, shock that keeps it from attempting the behavior again. Intensity of the shock can be varied between seven levels. The collar can be activated from up to 1/4 mile away.
Sells for $349.95 plus $10 S&H.
