Val, if your horse is pulling through the Tie Ring, she is liable to pull the innertube to the point of it snapping like a rubber band. Think of what a rubber band does when it snaps.
If your horse is pulling through the Tie Ring, your lead may be too short or you need to start from "0" again in her education.
The other option, and I'm going to take flack for this, is to tie her up with a nylon halter, stout lead, and a bull snap, (or a rope halter/lead combo) to solid post, tree, or trailer. It's a last resort but it's been used for centuries. Just don't leave her alone.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
