That's how everyone where I'm taking lessons cross ties! I will be honest, I had never seen anyone cross tie a horse before - my aunt's horses just sat there and soaked up whatever attention you had to give them.. And if she got a new horse & they wouldn't stand she'd just work with them until they did..
