Just a random thread on your opinions of crossties. Personally, I don't like them and refuse to use them. Horses were meant to move, and I don't like how they restrict their movement. Gosh, some of them that I've seen are so tight that the horse's halter is snug against his face and he can't move at all. Some are not as tight and not as bad, but as for me, I'd just as soon have my horses learn to stand tied than force them to.
Plus, one of my guys was beaten in crossties, so even if I did use them, it wouldn't be an option for him. He flips himself over. Poor guy.
Anyway. What are your opinions, and do you use them?
