Blocker Tie Ring
Blocker Tie Ring allows you to regulate the amount of hold by using one or more of the three different tying options. In addition, you can increase the hold by as little as a few pounds or as much as several hundred pounds, simply by changing the type of lead rope that you use.
There are three things you need to consider when tying your horse:
• First, horses are claustrophobic by nature
• Second, they have a fight-or-flight instinct
• Third, they have a very strong survival instinct
When a horse realizes he is tied solid and feels trapped, he panics. His fight-or-flight instinct kicks in and he tries to get away by pulling back so hard, that often, the snap on the lead rope will break. The sudden release of pressure that results after the tack breaks can cause the horse to jerk back or flip over on its back, often causing trauma to the poll, neck, withers, and hamstrings. Often, a horse may never recover from these injuries and/or suffers physical or psychological problems for the rest of its life or worse.
The Blocker Tie Ring gives you an alternative to other tying methods. Designed to be a support system rather than a restraint system, the Blocker Tie Ring allows a horse to pull slack in the lead rope when he panics or falls. This releases pressure and the source of pain or panic, reducing the threat of injury to you and your horse dramatically.
