Wow! That's a smart cookie.

I ment to add this into my last post by my phone is acting funny... I'd much rather take someone with me! I think its important for safety, an extra set of eyes and it gives me someone to chat with.

Actually I would call ahead and get curb side service.

if you do go down to the store i think its best to take a groom with you to keep a watchfull eye on your horse.
a halter would be the better option.
also a bungie backed up with a lead rope just in casefrom the bit over the head and back through the bit with a bit more slack than the bungie.
here is a bungie i have got for my new trailer.

but i would recomend a groom to acompaney the horse espeasherley on todays roads i think thats the safest way.
or get your horse a nose bag so his mind is on eating his food whilst you shop that could be another idear whilst he/she is tied to a hitching post.
Jimmy, from seeing some people experiences with bungies I would NEVER use one. If a horse pulls and it breaks it can take out there eye and I just say a lady in the hospital as it hit her in the head and cut her. Just some info I wanted to share.

I dislike bungees, especially the cross tie ones... Seems like a good way to break your horses face or seriously injure someone.

I'd go for curbside if it was an option.

I'd be more worried about him trying to swing around while standing and flipping the cart. Really, if I were to drive into town and want to tie out for a bit, I would spend the extra couple of minutes unhitching so that you can take the cart out of the equation. Donkey tied like he's used to, cart out of leg range, I, personally, would rest much easier.

And yes, I'd tie solidly with a halter and tied nylon lead, no breaking points for the "just in case" moments.
