RE: [RC] [RC] Hi Tie / Corral - terry banister

Picket LIne is a line strung between two nonmoveable objects, such as trees, poles and trailers. If the line is mounted at the horse's shoulder, it is referred to as a picket line, and if it is mounted above the horse's head (7 ft. from ground) it is referred to as a "high line." Stringing a high line is preferrable because the horse can turn 360 degrees and lay down and roll without the tie rope interfering. The picket line at chest level keeps horse on one side of the line, but they can charge into it when spooked.

The HiTie is a name-brand for a flexible rod that is mounted to the side of your trailer (7 ft. from ground) and works on the same principle as a high line. It is a strong, flexible fiberglass rod that has been used in the boating industry for many years.
Another brand name is the Spring Tie, which uses a heavey metal rod attached to a large spring in order to accomplish the same thing - provide "give" when the horse pulls on it (which negates their panic instinct). The bungee used to tie the horse adds even more "give" to the equation.
Original high trailer ties were unflexible metal rods, and the tie ropes were not bungee-type, so the horses were able to pull on them and sometimes get loose.

Good Question. I am refering to the bunge thing that attaches to the trailer but I really don't know much about a Picket Line either.

I looked in the archives and didn't see much on the Hi Tie. I was thinking of getting one. Does anyone out there have any opinions or other recomendations on them or other tie systems before I invest? or even portable Corral systems (not electric)?
Thank You in advance,
Newbie Jen
