This Chrome Plated Blocker Tie Ring is a knotless tie ring, a quicker, simpler and safer way to tie. After seeing horses panic and get hurt when tied solid, horse trainer Ted Blocker developed this safer and more humane way to tie a horse. Use anywhere you tie your horse. While allowing some pull-through of the horse’s lead, the degree of hold can be regulated by one of several tying options from as little as a few pounds or as much as a few hundred pounds, depending on the horse and the situation. When the horse pulls hard enough, he can pull some slack in the lead rope which releases pressure and the source of pain and panic. This reduces the threat to the horse dramatically as well as allowing the horse to pull himself enough slack to get up should he fall down, such as in a trailer. Includes tie ring, shackle, eye bolt and instructions. Easy to install and remove for use around the barn/trailers.
