The Blocker Tie Ring is the Safer Way to Tie Your Horse

Horse Tack - Press Release

Throughout his career, longtime horseman and natural horsemanship trainer, Ted Blocker heard countless stories of horses panicking, pulling back and getting hurt when they were tied solid. He saw the need for improvement in tying a horse and felt that the options available were limited and not as safe as they could be. Motivated by the belief that he could help prevent horses from panicking and getting hurt while being tied solid, Blocker invented the Blocker Tie Ring as a safer alternative to tying a horse.

Often, when a horse realizes hes tied solid he feels trapped, panics and pulls back potentially breaking tack and hurting himself. When tack breaks, there is a sudden release of pressure and horses have to scramble to keep their balance and can easily flip over backwards and/or seriously hurt themselves. Unique, the Blocker Tie Ring offers some resistance, but allows a horse to pull some slack in the lead rope when he pulls back which releases pressure and relieves the source of panic. This reduces the perceived threat to the horse dramatically, as well as reduces the threat to people who might try to release a distressed horse. Often times, a horse just needs to pull a foot or two of slack in the lead to regain his confidence and quiet down. A great tool for teaching horses to tie, re-schooling horses that have a pull back problem or for any horse, the Blocker Tie Ring offers varying degrees of resistance, from as little as a few pounds to a few hundred pounds, depending on the tying option and lead rope used. Versatile, the Blocker Tie Ring can be used anywhere one would tie a horse: cross ties, single ties, grooming areas, tack areas, wash racks, picket lines and inside and outside horse trailers. The Blocker Tie Ring is perfect for use in trailers, should a horse fall down while tied in a trailer, the Blocker Tie Ring allows a horse to pull enough slack in the lead rope to get up on its own, reducing the need to manually free a horse and the chances of horse or handler getting hurt.

A simple two-ring and tongue design, similar to that of a belt buckle, the Blocker Tie Ring is made in both chrome plated and stainless steel versions and is available for $19 95 and $29 95, respectively. Approximately 4 3/4 inches tall by 3 inches, the Blocker Tie Ring comes with an eyebolt, shackle and detailed instructions for easy installation and use. The Blocker Tie Ring is available in select tack stores nationwide.
