Blocker tie rings are worth 100% of the investment! After my mare pulled twice I knew that I had to find a solution or it would continue to get worse, and the tie ring solved the problem.

I like the high line for the youngster's myself, however, for some of the older horses I've gotten with bad habits I do it a bit old school.
I take a big old innertube and a big old tree. Put a no pull halter with fleece on top to help protect and tie with a secure slip knot. I use two lead ropes, one connected to the no pull and one to the regular ring so all the pressure isn't just on the no pull.
Leave them there with frequent checking (I can see it out my window). Not only do they tie after that but actually lead better also. No injuries to me or the horse.
I remember one place I worked at... they had a three year old who liked to flip himself. So one day they placed climbing rope up a light pole. Use a couple snaps and a no pull halter. He was a nice riding horse after that day (I know because I was the one they threw on him).

Blocker tie rings are TRAINING TOOLS. They should be used to get a horse more comfortable with tying and then you should start tying like any other horse.

We have an old 'Be Nice Halter' we have to hunt up and dust off every once in a while. It is a type of 'war bridle'. It hurts when the horse pulls back and releases instantly when the horse comes forward, so it trains the horse to not pull back.

I have not had a serious pull-back horse since I quit training for the public and that was before Tie Blocker Rings came along. I would probably buy one if I had a serious puller now.

But, one of the reasons I do not have halter pullers and breakers is because I use strong rope halters, good nylon lead-ropes with 5 inch 'bull-snaps' and have several un-breakable places to tie that are ALL HIGHER THAN A HORSE'S WITHERS. All of these tie places have a permanent nylon rope with a bull snap, so I can just snap a horse up to any of them and know that it will not break.

Have you ever heard the old saying "Good fences make good neighbors!"?

Well, "Good halters and good lead-ropes make horses with good stable manners!"

My horse will pull until either the halter or himself breaks. A halter I can replace. My horse I can't. But I'm going to try the blocker ring and see if that works with him
