I have horse that is terrible with tying. Used to be great but freaked out in cross ties one day and now he just freaks and pulls back every time he is tied. I am trying to work with him and he is getting better. He will tie nicely now but still hasn't gotten over the cross ties. I do have the velcro breakaway cross ties. However the other day he was tied to the trailer and pulled back and broke his halter. Usually I just use a bit of hay string to tie him and that breaks easily rather than his halter. A few weeks ago I saw these things on tack of the day. It looked alot like a carabiner (those things used for climbing or more popular for putting key rings on). You hooked it to the ring on a trailer and when the horse pulls back, the clip is made to come apart (not break). I really want to get some of these as it would be easier than hay string, but I can't find anything like it!! Anyone ever seen this or know of something similar? Or any other reccomendations are appreciated as well.
