Horses can and will get hurt tied to anything.

Try tying an inner tube between your horse and anything Solid. But Better
Watch Out if he can break it. Or try using a 'gut-rope', but is a real
hassle to put on and off. If horse is tied to or with anything that will
break, will be very dangerous to people and equipment. If horse is unable
to break rope, halter or post, he may break his neck (not kidding)
