[RC] A puller - heidi sowards

I have a puller!!! I use a tie-blocker and it does work. 
I'm guilty of buying a "gadget". However, the cool thing
about this thing is you can take it anywhere and it's great
for tying in the trailer, if the horse ever falls it gives
them enough slack to be able to get themselves back on
their feet. At least I know I won't show up somewhere with
a horse that has hanged himself. It has greatly improved my
horse's confidence and has made him relax on the lead line
(while tied.) You can use it on a highline as well. I use
it for all my horses, pullers or not! Go to Clinton
Anderson's website (he endorses them) or go to

Good luck, pullers are not fun!! I've had 2 now, never had
a tie-blocker with the other one!

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.

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!
