|Q. How can I be sure my horse won’t get loose if the lead rope slips all the way through the Blocker Tie Ring?
A. This is a great question and a lot has to be considered to completely answer it. The fact is, you can’t be sure that your horse won’t get loose using a tie ring or any other tying method.
The first thing that needs to be considered is your horse’s training. Is he broke to tie? Will he stand quietly without pulling back?
If you aren’t sure or the answer is “no”, then you will have to re-school or train your horse. For tips on training your horse to tie, go to our tips page.
If the answer is yes, then you really shouldn’t have to worry about your horse getting loose. The Blocker Tie Ring offers enough resistance through the different tying methods and use of different types of lead ropes to hold almost any horse that has been properly broke to tie.
Most likely, it would only be in a true emergency or dire circumstance that a broke horse would pull a lead rope all the way through the Blocker Tie Ring and get loose. For example, in the case of a fire or a trailer accident you’d want your horse to be able to get away without hurting himself or you. Of course, these are very serious matters and not so pleasant to think about, but the fact that the Blocker Tie Ring releases a lead rope may help avoid additional tragedy in dangerous situations.
