(skip to 1:53 for the relevant part… couldn’t find a shorter clip)
Wow. The geniuses at Dura-Tech must think people are really, really dumb. I mean, come on! It’s a surcingle with a cleat thingy (technical term) instead of a ring (not that I’m sure that’s a superior feature, but we’ll discuss that later). Wanna bet there’s someone reading this and they’re all, “Bitch! I bought that and it’s the best thing I ever got Fluffy because now he never steps on his lead rope. Before I bought this he stepped on it all the freaking time and would get so scared! You don’t know me!” (complete with the snaking of the head and three accompanying snaps).
Because paying attention to your horse and what you’re doing isn’t an option…
Hey, it’s later. So, cleat-thingy vs. ring. Um, I vote ring. The cleat holds the lead rope and you can quickly get it to release by pulling back (away from the horse’s head) and then out. Of course, if you’re at the wrong angle, this isn’t going to work all that well. What if the horse chooses to look in the opposite direction but doesn’t have enough line? Presumably that’ll tighten the cleat’s hold on the line, making it that much harder to pull back and release. Hrmmm, flaw?
