Why did you choose this?
Would I have better luck with a pawing chain or ankle band? Thank you!
Best Answer: depends on your horse, if he's pretty committed to pawing the bands might not be uncomfortable enough to get him to stop. Some of my horses continue to paw, depending on their anxiety level, but it generally eliminates the majority of my pawing issues with MOST of my horses.
So has anyone has success with this ?
Best Answer: yes, I have used them on several horses that would paw in the trailer from mildly to severely. It worked on all of them MOST of the time. It is uncomfortable for them when they paw, so most stop. Occasionally they will start again, and if they are especially emotional, might continue and ignore the discomfort.. They are easy to put on and take off, and I now use them on all horses when I haul. For the most part I have very little to no pawing to put up with

How long should you leave on the paw be gone?
Best Answer: I mainly use mine on trailer trips, so as long as the trip lasts. If you want to use them when a horse is tied to the trailer or cross tied in an aisle, you can leave them on as long as the tying lesson is going on. They don't hurt the horse, they just move when he paws, and it's a strange feeling, so generally they stop. Some horses with a high emotion level, will keep pawing for a while, but most stop rather quickly. when they are just standing, Make sure you don't walk the horse anywhere with them on, remove them, then walk him where you need to go, tie him, then put the paws-be-gone back on. If you walk them with them on, the horse gets used to the unusual feeling, and would be more likely to continue to paw with them on. Short training sessions would be best, if your horse is a dedicated pawer, maybe 20 min at a time tied, and when you notice they've been standing quietly, remove the paws be gone, untie them and if possible give them a reward, such as turnout,
