<< bj: RC: Tether systems(ie. Skyhooks) >>
My concern with this type of system is, what happens if horse rears up? some
of us have tall horses and I know mine would hit the Skyhook if he should
rear up. It's a neat idea but still unsafe as far as I can tell. To me it
falls into the catergory of hot wire fencing at rides, very unsafe.
Yes I know, I'm going to get "flamed" for that remark but it is true. About
hot wire fencing.

I don't see how it could be any more dangerous than a picket line.
