To add about high-lining horses: If you've never done it before you'll want to hang around for a bit after you've tied him up so that he shows you whether or not he can get himself into trouble (tangled, hang himself, get a foot over the rope). That's probably a no-brainer; I just threw it in because not everyone has seen all of the things that can go wrong when you start tying horses to things!

I'm all for tying a horse For extended periods of time, but do NOT leave them unsupervised. What were to happen if they got the rope wrapped around their neck and panicked while you weren't there? It's happened before so please be within eye sight of your horse any time they are tied so you can rush in and recue them if need be. Heck, I've had to do it with my colt before and he was standing right next to me.

Yeah.. us old horses still have a few new tricks for you young 'uns.. LOL Tho watching your videos I expect I could learn a lot more from you than you from me.

I believe the spring was a commercial overhead garage door spring. Lots of stretch.. but it was high up enough to stay away from the horse if there was a blue I am gonna-throw-myself-on-the-ground-so-there fit.

A sharp knife and a knowledge of knots is essential to training horses!!!
