[RC] over head ties - June Scheunemann & Mike Bernsdorf

I know there are alot of you that don't like  electric fencing but, I'm
still for that way of containment at a ride.  Like I stated before we use
the 1 1/2 inch white tape and use 4 ft. step in posts (from Premiere
fencing)and then put up 2 strands and we make sure the electric is working.
This past weekend a friend had the over head swing arm ties and her one
horse got the leg over the rope and ended up siting down on the rope
...bending the over-head arm and the panic snap was unable to be
released....thank goodnes for hoof knives as Mike ran over and was able to
cut the rope.....mare came out of it OK as she didn't panic too much once
she realized she was down.
