Hobbles and kicking chains are horse-controlled training devices that provide immediate results for unwanted behaviors. Often, they are used when a horse is in a stall to deter vices such as stall kicking, weaving, stall walking, and pawing. We carry durable nylon and leather kicking chains, ankle hobbles, and hock hobbles from trusted equestrian tack brands including Weaver Leather and Professionals Choice.
Kicking chains for horses attach directly to your horse’s hind pasterns. When your horse kicks or bucks in his stall, the chains hit your horse’s legs to discourage the behavior. Our inventory includes fleece-lined kicking chains and sheepskin-lined kicking chains to increase comfort and limit the amount of chafing of your horse’s skin.
Depending on the style, hobbles attach to either your horse’s pasterns or hocks and are then secured to one another. Hobbles limit your horse’s motility and make certain stable vices, including weaving and pawing, difficult. They can also be used as a training aid when teaching your horse to ground tie or as a preventative measure during live cover breedings.
We recommend that you utilize kicking chains, hobbles, and hock hobbles under the tutelage of an experienced equestrian.
Put a stop to your horse’s stable vices with our selection of hobbles and kicking chains. If you have any questions regarding the use of the training devices or would like assistance making your purchase, we encourage you to speak with a member of our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff who have years of hands-on experience with the horse training products which we carry.
