I'm curious about how you tie your horses overnight. I cannot imagine this being allowed
at any ride in the UK, let alone commonly used. Some places, such as police barracks, do
stall their horses, which I guess is similar, but it is not normal. I think we would
probably have more trouble with animal rights groups if it was commonly used - some
people see endurance as cruel as it (people who don't know anything about it of course).

What length rope do you use, and how much freedom does the horse have? I assume they can't
lie down tied up, is this a problem? Our horses would normally lie down for several hours
a night.

Just curious,
