QUESTION
Hi - I am in NZ and have a 2 year old who got stuck in a fence to help keep him still when we treat him one of the people at the stables has a type of twitch he got given from somebody in the US it goes around behind the ears and then into his mouth and under his top lip. We are not able to get these in NZ. I was wondering if anybody knew the name of this twitch and who sells them?


ANSWER

I believe you are talking about the Stableizer which uses pressure points under the horse's upper lip and in the poll area to release endorphins and create a calming affect on the horse. The Stableizer is becoming more popular and has even been used by top US Thoroughbred race horse trainers to deal with unruly horses in the paddock area. For more information on the Stableizer visit the official web site at The Stableizer and to order it visit Valley Vet Supply at Valleyvet.com
