PART ONE: Cross Ties
We don't really have a great place to tie our horses anywhere.
Our run-in shelter isn't built to hold up to that sort of thing, and the big fence posts that are, are blocked by the electric wire.
What's the safest/best design for free-standing cross ties?
Would a couple posts sunk deep into the ground be good enough?
How should they be spaced?
I don't think any of ours know how to stand tied, so it needs to be strong enough to withstand unhappy, full grown horses until they learn that being tied isn't a bad thing.
Right now, if we need to tie for anything, we either have to have multiple people (one to hold and one to do whatever needs doing), or we have to load then into the trailer and work in the confined space - Obviously not the best options.
PART TWO: Round Pens
What's a sufficient height for a round pen for working with horses that are broke, but out of practice?
The biggest one is only 14.2hh, no stallions, no colt breaking.
Just a simple pen for lunging and groundwork.
