How To... Tie A Horse Safely

The article below has general information on how to tie a horse. If you are specifically looking for a knot to tie a horse, please see this page: Tie A Quick Release Knot.

To tie a horse safely means to tie it so that it is unlikely to hurt itself, or anyone or anything nearby. Here are a few tips to help you tie your horse safely.

The horse in the photo below is tied securely and safely. He is tied with a good quality halter and lead rope and the halter fits the horse well. The rope is tied at about the same height as the horse's back. It is tied to a secure post using a quick release knot that can be jerked free if the tail of the rope is pulled on. Also, the horse is tied long enough it can adjust its head position and/or bite at flies, but short enough it cannot get a leg over the rope.
