Chrome Plated Blocker Tie Ring II
The Blocker Tie Ring has changed the way people tie their horses. It provides a safe, humane way to tie your horse. Designed to be a support system rather than a restraint system.
Blocker Tie Rings allow a horse to pull slack in the lead rope when he panics or falls. This releases pressure and the source of pain or panic which dramatically reduces the threat of pain or injury to you and your horse. The Mag-Loc feature holds the tongue in place, making the tie ring more stable so it can be mounted at any height needed.
In addition to cross ties, single ties, grooming and tack areas, trailers, high lines and picket lines, you can also mount the Blocker Tie Ring II on hitch rails. The stays on either side of the tongue prevent it from sliding around the ring so your horse can safely pull slack from any angle. The quick snap makes the Tie Ring II even easier to move from location to location.
Includes quick snap, shackle, eyebolt and instruction booklet.

Why did you choose this?
How does this work?
Best Answer: I attach it to the tie ring on my trailer with the clip (I don't use the eye-bolt). You can't quite see it from this picture but imagine the large ring and the vertical piece on it (the part that the rope wraps around) like a belt buckle. Instead of the vertical piece going through the belt, though, the rope goes around it. If a horse pulls on it, the vertical piece gets pulled a little tighter.
Can a horse pull away from it altogether? Yup, though if you toss the loose end of the rope over the rope itself, it stays pretty well. It's not as snug as a cross tie or something similar, but I use it all the time when I'm tacking up at the trailer. We also have one at the barn and use it for washing or grooming. Keeps my horse where I put her (even though there are days she hates the hose). It's great for what it's for.
horse pulled back when approaching trailer ramp - pulled lead out of my hand ran across field. Never did before but once he found he could pull away repeated 3 X !! Could I use clip with long lead to secure at trailer while loading?
Best Answer: There are several levels of ties you can do with the ring that determine the amount of give to the horse. I have only used the loosest level. When tied like that the horse can continue to pull until the lead complete comes through the tie ring. So I would not tie like that for this purpose. If you try the next level up, you'll get less give which may be enough to stop your horse from backing up. Having had issues with trailering before, my suggestion would be to use a lunge line behind his butt so he can't back up then slowly push him on. I've also done clicker training for loading.
