    Tee Hee... that's kinda funny ^^^ One hand on the horse, the other on a belt loop!!!


    After you use it for a while, I'd like to hear of the downsides, if you find any....

    Interesting contraption. Had never seen one before. How comfortable is it for the horse tho when being ridden?

    I use them on my horses when I trail ride. They are especially useful if you ride with a hackamore or bosal. They work well for horses who have good ground manners.

    Now you know why John Wayne and myself wear suspenders and a belt. They say you can't trust a man that dosnt trust his trowsers.

    What would happen if a horse were to pull back while tied?

    I think it would be less traumatic then a halter since it is thicker so less pressure. A halter is going to be pressured at the same place, the back of the neck
    I think this would break at the D ring very easily anyway.

    That's why I won't tie anymore with that -- unless I can make / get a leather one or a breakaway system. I'm not convinced a nylon version of this would break. I'm certain my old way of using a lead rope wouldn't break.

    Good idea, my husband wants one now that I have been using it the last few days. I may have some old leather belts in the closet that may work too.
    I have reverted to just tying it to my saddle and putting it on when we take a break.
