Make Your Own Blocker Tie Ring For $2!

I have a horse that likes to lean back when she is tied and "Pop" the breakaway halter. It is impopssible to tie her up without her breaking a rope or a halter. So I did some research and came up with the Blocker or Aussie tie ring. Some of the cheapest ones ran about $25, and I was not willing to pay that much for a ring. So I came up with this:

#1. Is a trailer lock ring, it has the same divider as the blocker tie ring, and I bought a spring clip ring to ue to attach the tie ring to the barn wall.IMG_0745.jpg
#2. It opens and closes just like a blocker tie ring.IMG_0746.jpg

#3. And this is how I attached them together, all I have to do now is attach it to the barn, and put my lead rope through it!IMG_0747.jpg

Ok, I know that this is NOT a blocker tie ring, but it still works the same way as one should work, I used it on my horse and she has shown improvement.
It does look kind of weird, but it works, an you could alo modify it however you like.
I $2 on this, $0.79 for the ring, and $1.19 for the snap. Its a good deal!

Great idea. I actually own some of the others. But am going to try this. I love them

In the last picture it looks really weird, but it does not actually look like that, it is from the camera angle.

Thanks for sharing this! I've been needing to get one for Cheyenne but I haven't because they cost so much. This is probably a dumb question.. but where can I purchase the trailer lock ring? From my local feed store?

Many horse pull back when halter tied. Often its a result of a lack of ground work in its initial training....

All I do to save more halters and ropes being broken, is tie a longer rope thru the halter ring and up around the horses neck in a bowline knot that wont slip no matter how hard a horse pulls back.. please initially tie the other end up high to stop the horse flipping rite over backwards...

Also a good idea to tie a baling twine string onto the post and your horse onto this so the string breaks first..

I find......... (others will disagree no doubt) but in time a horse that does pull back learns that if he is panicing and he knows the string will break its seems to eventually settle and not do it as much then will eventually stop doing it..

I have had several especially ex race horses that pull back lots... this works for me....

Oh yes, sorry I forgot to write that, I bought mine from tool town, and you could find it at canadian tire, and possibly trator supply.

I am sorry, it is actually called a heavy duty lynch. But we use it to lock our trailers. I just read the receipt:)

Oh I see. Good to know. I don't have a trailer yet but my friends 3 horse slant uses one to close up too.

I have a bag of them hanging in the garage, they are used to pin on equipment on tractors, plows, bushhogs, scraper blades , etc. Look for a tractor dealer. How do you put the lead line in ? Does it tie or just loop through the snap ring.

If you look at the tie blocker website, they show you how to loop the lead for 3 levels of resistance.
