These work! I had a older gelding that I was told could not be tied/bathed/bug sprayed/etc........I got a aussie tie ring (same as a blocker but through clinton anderson). I used a 20ft. Long line clipped on the rope halter. I stayed close by and every time he pulled back and was able to move he stopped......I would go pull the rope through so like he was tied and just kept doing that.
Also what works is by letting them graze (I would let them out in my yard one at a time) with their rope halter and lead on, I did that with my now 4yr. Gelding who was born here and he learnt very young no need to panic, step off the rope LOL
I did that with all my horses, none of them panic if they are tied up and something scares them, they may pull back and then step forward to release the pressure.......
