I like hobbles, when used correctly,for the right reasons
posted 4 years ago
As long as used correctly, hobbles can be a useful training tool. Although I've never used for breeding a mare, I assume they would be helpful for that as well. I don't however like these - the nylon can very easily tear the skin if the horse puts up a fight. I make my own hobbles, out of extremely soft, thick cotton rope - they don't hurt the horse and they won't break or snap. As long as they are used correctly, they can be a great training tool... if used wrong it can be a disaster. NOT for use by inexperienced horse person.
Pros: Can be a good training tool
Cons: Can be used incorrectly, and cause injury

I agree. I have a pair of hobbles you can tell have only been used one time and I won't ever do that again.
I used it on a horse that wanted to kick while I was cleaning his sheath. He was full of beans and they had to come out, but he wouldn't stop trying to kick me.
The horse wet crazy after he realized they were on and all control was lost. Good thing we were in sand on soft ground. Even after the horse went down, it was dangerous and difficult to take the hobbles off. Never again. Buyer beware. If you don't want your horse to paw, then take the time to teach him rather than taking, what seems like, the easy way around.

Many of my birds have survived thanks to this antibiotic. Why I can't find it in a store is beyond me. This is a miracle tonic that at only 2.99 can save all types of birds. It's almost impossible to … more ›
