Cross ties should be solidly attached to a solid post that is anchored properly in the ground and made of a sturdy rope....and have quick release snaps to fasten to the halter.
I think there is more danger in having someone who doesnt know how to properly tie a quick release knot, then in having cross ties.
Either way, if a horse panics, the halter or rope will break in almost all cases before the horse breaks their neck.
