Oh yeah, one other thing.  There is a very definite length that the rope 
needs to be in order to be safe.  It is with the snap about 1/2" from the 
ground when the rope is pulled tight from its tie position.  Also, I've found 
that a bull snap works best -- can't come unsnapped on its own.   Obviously, 
you tie with a quick release knot or snap at the trailer end..  Heidi's point 
about training a horse to deal with ropes is a really good one.  Hobbles are 
an excellent way to do that -- which reminds me, I have two horses who could 
use hobble training.  Maybe I should get out of this room and go do that!!!
