RE: [RC] [RC] ? To Tie or Not to Tie - Agilbxr

I had a friend at a dog show lose an eye while bungee tying a dog crate into 
her truck.  She was stretching it and dropped it, it came up and caught her 
eye.  I now use those red tie thingies that you have to clamp.  They are a pain 
in the rear, but no one I know has lost an eye to them.  As far as tying 
horses, an old innertube from a semi truck and a couple of really good ropes 
with big bull clips works for me.   We taught a 16.2 hand TB mare who'd never 
even been halter trained at age 4 to stand tied.  

After she'd stand at the tree, then we used a stretchie lead rope to train her 
to stand at the horse trailer.  It had some give, but was strong enough to hold 
if she sat back.  She's now doing Prix St. George dressage in Atlanta, so I 
guess we did something right starting that one...

Juli and Alpine (I had nothing to do with the mare...I got the heck out of 
dodge when she acted stupid)
