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....

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

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 cant 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.
