What is cribbing?
The term cribbing is used to describe the behavior of a horse who rests his top teeth on a relatively stationary object and sucks air into his throat. Cribbing is often associated with stress and frustration in horses. It can develop when horses are working in high-stress situations, such as focused training. It can also occur in horses who are subjected to tight management practices that involve confining them to stalls for long periods of time without breaks for foraging. Studies have shown that horses can develop cribbing behavior even when they live in a pasture with other horses
