Wind Sucking Collar







Wind Sucking Collar with Soft Leather Pad

Invented by Horsemen for Horses!!


A Major Saddlery Chain has tried to copy this, made changes and it rubs Horses necks!!! The Miracle Collar has now been proved to not work adequately.



  • This should be adjusted up nice and flush with not a lot of room but not being unfair.

  • Remember that it loosens when they put their Head down to eat or drink,

  • There have been 2 unsatisfied Customers in 500 Sales and they were only from rubbing the Neck issues and then I altered the design and incorporated the ‘Kid Leather” which has solved that slight problem.

  • Oil Well to protect from Weather and keep nice for Horse

    Dear John Your collar arrived last week all the way across the world to Namibia!

    (And caused a lot of interest for customs! I was trying to explain what it was so they could decide how to tax it) I have finally grasped how the collar is supposed to work in terms of ‘natural horsemanship’ that increasing pressure slowly and with sensitivity and this in time will just make wind sucking an unpleasant thing to do.

    I am so happy to tell you that I am only on day 4 of having the collar on and for 1.5 days now I have not seen him sucking once. He still goes to the pole and I can see he is thinking about it but ends up turning away or just licking the pole and then he decides to leave it! I never in anyway saw this collar as a quick fix (if there was we would not have any wind suckers in the first place!) I saw it as a weaning off process that I will take slowely and over time. But never would I have expected to see such a quick reaction to it! Day one I had it on the first hole for him to get used to it, but he still wind sucked as normal, so I put it onto hole 2. This made him think a bit and he stopped for Half a day, but carried on sucking again in the morning of day 2. I then (after asking my vet if he thinks I can still go up) put it up to hole 3. And since then I have not had one actual suck. And I have really tested him, he would suck especially after feeding and getting treats such as carrots, I give him carrots etc with the collar on and even then ‘he takes the decision after going to the pole’ to rather not suck!

    I am beyond excited and grateful that I bought your collar, I have tried all other options and nothing worked and admit I was nervous about investing so much in a collar especially with our exchange rate. But this is turning out to be the best investment in my precious horse I have ever made! I will keep you posted and I hope that things will stay as they are. And I will keep using the collar long after he stops and will then start releasing pressure and see how he goes. Thank you!!! I am beyond grateful that I came across your collar!! All the best

    Hi John, Just a note about the collar, My 12 year old black and white Paint gelding started cribbing about 2 years ago, then turned to wind sucking. It was getting so bad that he was lethargic, loosing weight and muscle mass and not socializing with the rest of the herd of 6 horses. He would even stop eating his hay to walk over to the fence and suck wind then go back to eating and return to wind sucking. In the Fall of 2012 I thought I was going to loose him, as the Canadian winter was coming and he was in poor shape. He made it through the winter with the help of Vickie Keam a Equine Therapist and pouring the feed and hi protein supplements to him. But he was still wind sucking and unusable. After doing some research I came a cross your video. I took the chance and ordered your collar. After putting it on, Justice has not sucked a fence post or cribbed once. He has made it back to the horse he was, trial riding in the Rocky Mountains and my 16 year old son is now using him in 4-H rodeos and Equine program. I highly recommend this product! Well Done John.

    Thank for the fast response.

    This new collar is for reserve. In case the first one breaks. I bought the first one in january of this year and it works fantastic. My horse does not windsuck at all and doesn’t chew on the wood in the paddock. Wich he did before.
    Another positive thing is that he does not have injures/wounds around the neck from the collar.

    At the moment we’re training for dressage competions, he’s really doing well. His mood is much better, so working with him has become really easy.
    We’ve come a long way, I doubt if this would have happend without the collar.

    Thank you again for your fantastic product.

    Greeting from the Netherlands.

    Hello, I just wanted to let you know that I purchased your collar for my 19 year old appendix mare. She has been a severe winduscker all her life. It even got to the point where she would colic once a month and she dropped weight to the point we though she was going to die. I only owned the horse for two months before I bought the collar and knew she needed some help NOW. Your collar has saved her life! She does not windsuck at all! Her weight is coming back, the colic stopped, and she seems more relaxed. It also helped us determine a new problem with her that we never would have found. She has acute arthritis and she was hiding the pain by windsucking. We can now determine where and how bad her pain is an make her more comfortable. Thanks you for your wonderful collar!

    OMG the best purchase I ever have made.

    I bought my TB 3.5year old from a lady who sold them on from the trainer if they were no good as race horses. She never disclosed that he was a windsucker and it wasnt until a few weeks later after I got him home that I noticed he occasionaly did windsuck.

    I researched windsucking and tried the KER diet which did help alleviate the problem as I pretty much kept him full of long digestive food but as soon as I turned him out to pasture a few months ago he became chronic.

    You collar has stopped him in his tracks and he is now starting to put on weight and be a happier horse.

    Thanks so much for an awesome product.

    Hi Mr HP,

    Just wanted to let you know that the collar we purchased from you works a treat:)

    We are very grateful to have the problem fixed with the mare and of course there will be no bad habits picked up by the foal.

    Will be recommending your collar to anyone who has this problem as it is simple and effective.

    We dont need to worry about malfunctions (electronically)!

    Kind regards

    Hi John,

    If anyone lis ooking for a collar to help their wind sucking horse, I recommend they give your collar a go. I have had a wind sucking thoroughbred for about 3 years now; if I knew then what I know now… I have tried two or three different collars (he came with an aluminium one which broke not long after). I wasn’t happy with their performance and they also rubbed him raw a few times. So we went searching the internet again looking for new options.

    We came across your website and thought we would give one a go. That was a bit over 2 years ago now and your collars do the job with no rubbing and that has been through some really lousy and wet weather on the NSW coast. I don’t think he will ever stop wind sucking – as soon as the collar comes off, he looks for something to suck on. But, with the collar on, no wind sucking and no problems feeding or other normal activities with the other horses in the paddock. with the collar on he feeds normally with the other horses. We finally had to replace the collar this week as the straps finally wore out. When it was time to replace the collar, we came straight back to your website.

    Keep up the good work and thank you for a product that doesn’t hurt the horse but stops the destructive habit while the collar is on.

    ” Hi John,

    Just wanted to send you some feedback on the wind sucking collar I bought from you.
    Caesar is a 16.3hh 14 Y/O OTTTB that I brought home this time last year; wonderful nature but as a result of a racing career, was a chronic windsucker.
    I was using one of those typical collars that you can pick up from any old saddlery which was more like an ornament than a preventative for his problem; basically it did nothing and in no time at all my fences were a mess.
    Sucking was the first and last thing on C’s mind – if he was stressed he would suck, if he was waiting for his dinner he would suck, if he was in between munching hay, he would suck. It was a real mental problem for him that had manifested into a physiological behavior, and it drove us both nuts.
    I read about your new collar on your website, and the rest is history!
    Caesar has been wearing his collar for about a year now; it only took two (2) or three (3) attempts to suck with the collar on before he gave up and walked away; sucking is impossible with this collar, it stopped immediately.
    The transformation over the past year has been amazing; Caesar has gone from a horse whose only interest was to suck (and as a result withdrawn from the herd and us) to a horse that has a new lease on life. He now initiates play with the youngsters and seeks out people for a scratch and a carrot as opposed to latching onto something/anything and sucking.
    The collar itself has stood up to it all; wind, rain, heat etc.. It’s a beautiful piece of work that will last a lifetime.
    Anyone that owns a windsucker should have this collar.
    Pic to follow; I’ll take some happy snaps tonight!
