Re: [RC] tethering a puller? - Jeannie Gillen

Been there, done that.....mine did better on an overhead tie line and a
bunge type lead rope.....much better....the "give" of the bunge gave him
time to realize he didn't need to panic...

Hi, I was wondering if anyone had a horse that pulled when tied and what you
did when they were tethered at an over night ride? I just got this horse in
Jan. and he will stand ok with a benice halter and a good rope and a solid
post but I am afraid of what he will do on a tether. We camp often and will
be going to overnight rides. By tether I mean a rope between two poles or
trees tied over head with a knot elimanator. We use a strong rope but I am
not sure if it will hold him if he throws back and don't want to find out in
the middle of the night. Any suggestions are appreciated. {He is an Arab and
very smart}Thanks pattie h.

Just because someone tells you that your horse isn't "fit" for
endurance...doesn't mean it isn't, it just means your horse isn't fit to be
"their" endurance horse! Go for it, you never know what you'll accomplish
with that "saddle horse" or "trail horse" of YOURS!
