    Wasn't a gate. It's a round pen panel. I know better than to tie to a gate, but thanks

    This mare is built very downhill, to start. She has a bit of a ewe neck that ties too high into her steep shoulder. She's post legged in the hind end and stands over at the knee in the front end. She has a steep croup and her tail is set too high. I'm not going to go so far as to call her wasp-waisted, but she isn't deep enough in her flanks. Her back looks weak, and her neck is a bit short, but she's short coupled all around.

    She could use some weight. And lacks muscle all around; especially over her topline.

    Yea...I learned my lesson on that. Several years ago I tied one of my Arabs to one of those seemingly sturdy roundpen panels....well...she spooked and took off through the barn with it...I was standing a little further down the barn getting some grooming stuff...didn't see it coming and she dragged the whole panel and herself right over the top of me...I hit my head on some concrete and chipped a tooth. Didn't break anything surprisingly...just very bruised. I will never ever...ever tie to one of those things again. The mare was 100% fine...no injuries thank goodness.

    I understand what you guys are saying...but I've worked with horses that were seriously injured while being worked in round pens. Does that mean we don't use them? Nope, we keep doing it. BUT we do everything we can to to make sure they stay as safe as possible.

    What you can't see in the picture is me sitting on the panel before I tied her, that thing was in solid. And just as a precaution she was tied with a slip knot just in case. In the case of that particular picture, I trust that panel more than I would trust a hitching post. Which can be just as dangerous as a panel. But if you don't feel safe using panels to tie a horse than please don't, it makes sense based on your experiences.
