Cross ties

The cross ties where I board are attached to the tie rings with baling twine. The baling twine will break long before the horse breaks it's neck.

My horse can untie quick release knots, so it's pointless to use those with her.

Never heard that. All the cross-ties I've seen have quick-release snaps.

Yeah I know but she thinks its dangerous evadentally all the barns in her area have banned them.

Cross Ties WITH quick release snaps

In most cases, the crossties will break long before the neck does. I use crossties, with quick release snaps on both ends and baling twine.

Both! If im in the isle way of the barn, cross ties (with quick release buckles)... at the trailer, in the stall, ect... quick release knot

Both, as I think all horses should know how to tie and crosstie, but most of the time I ground tie. No worried there!

See the cross ties are made like that arent they most are made to be pull release knots?
Like the ones I see in Dover Saddlery?

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.
