Whether you have one horse or a dozen, having a no-fuss way to tie them out simplifies your time on the ground and reinforces lessons of patience and tolerance.
It is well known in the horse industry that it is safer to tie a horse above the head versus low at a post. Likewise, it is ideal if the horse can move around a bit to ease anxiety, and if this horse is moving, he must not become tangled in his tie rope. We have used what we call the Move Around System at our ranch with our personal horses for years. It works. It is simple and sturdy. There are no bearings, no grease, no mechanical parts to break. The only maintenance required is to periodically check the set screws to ensure they remain tight.
Other above head tie out systems are based on a rotating arm that extends out above the horse's head, posing an injury risk if the horse was to rear up. The Move Around is different, with a short, rounded tie point, which we have found to be safer for our horses. We simply tie our horse to the Move Around using his own lead rope and walk away.
Additionally, unlike other systems on the market, the Move Around is ADJUSTABLE. You can easily tie at the appropriate height, your big Belgian mare or you tiny miniature horse stallion using the exact same system in a matter of seconds. We have also used the Move Around as a set of height-adjustable cross ties.
What it is:
The Move Around is a revolutionary horse tie system. Made of high quality aircraft aluminum, this tie system allows for 360 degree movement of your horse.
*1 strong lightweight aluminum construction rotating unit
*8 stainless steel set screws and one allen wrench
*A 2 7/8 schedule 40 galvanized pipe, sold separately (from home improvement store or fencing company), on which to mount the Move Around System. We suggest a 12 foot pole, as the pole should be placed in cement at a four foot ground depth, leaving 8 feet of pole height above the ground. It is recommended that a cap be placed on top of the pole to prevent it from rusting.
Why is the Move Around the best system on the market?
*Strong, simple design with no mechanical parts that can break down or require maintenance
*Strong, lightweight aluminum will not rust
*Easy installation--each component simply slips over the mounted pipe and tightens in place with the set screws
*Unlike any other item on the market, this system is adjustable and can also be converted to a tie point that does not move and rotate if desired.
