Re: [RC] Blocker Tie Ring Video - legsmontanna

I, too, use the Blocker Tie Ring.  After my gelding ripped the tie bolt right off my trailer (taking a substantial piece of siding with it) I decided to try it.  I also use one inside my trailer.  I like them better than trailer ties because they are easier to manipulate loading and unloading.

I love the blocker tie ring!  My horse started pulling back after my new dog decided it was fun to jump at his nose while tied.  I cured the dog, but my horse continued to pull back on occasion.  The blocker tie ring is great because it lets the rope give a little when the horse pulls back.  Because they don't get solid resistance, most will stop pulling.  It worked with my horse and my friend's horse as well.  In fact she has a confirmed puller who has pretty much stopped pulling without even really testing it.  Its amazing.  I have purchased two, and I just purchased two more for another friend (in trade for farrier services :-)  ).  I highly recommend it.  The only thing to remember is that the horse can get loose if he pulls back enough times.  It is a training tool or a tool to be used if you are saddling the horse, etc.  You can't leave them tied all night to it unless maybe you put a knot in the end of the rope - but that defeats the purpose and raises other issues (tied with too long a rope, etc.).

Too weird, you just beat me to emailing the list to ask if someone who has
used the blocker tie ring could email me about it, I have some questions.
