RE: [RC] another form of confinement at ridecamps? - Becky Rohwer

Picketing is a some what popular way for back country people to let their
horses graze.  Often times a single hobble is used on either a front or rear
foot.  A horse can get really savvy about where the rope is and how not to
get tangled.  To get them used to it you can put a length of hose around the
rope near the horse so they are less likely to get caught up.  I've never
seen anyone picket at ride camp, but I suppose it could be done.  I would be
more concerned about some one else tripping over the picket line than having
a horse that has learned how to picket getting tangled.
