[RC] bungee ties....not my horses - Jonni

And to add to Karen's post, I found by making a rope that has a snap at BOTH
ends, one to snap to the horse (bull snap for me too) and one to snap to the
ring of the adjustment strap on my hi-tie (safety release snap on this end),
I know that if someone else "ties my horse up" for me, it will not be too
long, or too short. It will be the length *I* feel is best for my horse. If
I need to adjust the length, I can do so with the strap that attaches to the
hi-tie itself. Years ago, before I had hi-ties, I made ropes with snaps at
each end, and just snapped the one end to the trailer ring. Again, always
the right length for my horse, on my trailer. No adjustment available, but I
really have not had to adjust length anyway. Again, the photos of mine are
here: (I need to do some updates too)


I've been leaving my horses tied to the trailer at rides and camping for
some 20+ years. I have been lucky I guess, as I have never had one that was
unsafe to do so. I have had great success with it, and none of the horror
stories others have had. But one must TRAIN the horse to do so before you go
off to a ride, and one must have their set up as safe as possible.
