    Hobble training a horse isn't terribly difficult, I like the Craig Cameron cotton rope hobbles. I start them in the round pen, by attaching the hobble to one side only for a while, to get them used to the feel. Then I switch sides. After they are comfortable with both sides, I attach both. Then I just sit there, give them love and support and let them figure it out. It usually happens pretty quick. I have never had an accident or an injury. Just be there and rub on them and calm them. But beware hobbling a horse doesn't mean they can't run away from you, once they figure it out they can cover some territory....hobbled or not.

    I tie my horses head to their front leg. A lot of people don't agree with this, but I have been doing it for 15 years and me nor anyone I know who does this has ever had a problem.

    Ive never done this but you could hobble or tie them down low, or tie them to a low tree or shrub. Most of the time when im riding I don't let them eat while im on.

    OutOfTheLoop - will you elaborate a little bit. How much slack do you leave, what kind of knot do you use, and where do you tie to the leg? And did you need to train for this? Something like more slack in the beginning to allow the horse to lift it's head higher and then take out slack as the horse understands what's going on?

    I use a rope halter under the bridal.
    Keeping a lead line clipped at all times, I tie this back to the saddle.
    Leave enough slack so my horse could graze and drink but not get a front leg in it.
    I can tie to a tree for lunches, or dismount quickly and already have a hold on my horse.
