Re: [RC] Trailer Tie Systems - Truman Prevatt
The trick of any system is to block the access from other horses. It's
normally not your horse that's the prolem, it's other horses that come
through. If you horse is tied to the side of the trailer ( trailer tie
or just to the trailer). next to a wide open space, a herd or loose
horses can come through and cause problems. If you have a corral, pipe
(PVC, aluminum or steel) or electric in the open it can be run over by a
stampeding herd, same for tie lines.
You need to block the pathways to your horse when you park. You already
have blocks for two directions. By using natural obsticles, ditches,
trees, etc., other trilers/trucks you can make cozy enclosure for your
horse. You could even get together with a couple of friends and "circle
the wagons and put all the critters inside. It will not guarentee
nothing will ever happen but no system is going to be completely fool
proof. However, there is no system that is going to keep you horse in if
it is set up in the open.

Alright you guys... All this talk about electric corrals and all has got me
thinking about alternatives.
I've used electric pens since I started this sport and always have set it up
so my horses respect the fence with plenty of tape attached. My stakes are
in very poor condition now and will have to either buy new stakes for next
season or change my system.
I am interested in the trailer tie systems and would like opinions about
them. I want my horse to be comfortable and able to relax as he wishes but
Thanks in advance!
