Why We Love This

The Blocker Knotless Tie Ring prevents injury to you or your horse. When a solid-tied horse spooks or falls, it can panic - then something breaks or the horse injures itself (or both). Quick-release knots and panic snaps put you in danger as you try to reach them. The Blocker Tie Ring works WITH the horse. When the horse pulls hard on the lead, some of the rope slips through the tie ring - releasing pressure AND the source of panic. If the horse falls in a trailer, it can pull enough slack to get itself back up. 

Imported

Favorite Features

  • Blocker Tie Ring is truly a quicker, simpler, safer way to tie any horse
  • Adjustable: you can regulate the degree or amount of hold by the size and type of lead rope used
  • No more injuries to the horse's neck or vertebrae from pulling back against the lead
  • No more injuries, or even death, when the halter snap, lead rope, or bungee cord breaks, sending the horse against a post or flipping over onto a concrete floor. 
  • Blocker Tie Ring is invaluable in trailers, answering the age-old question "to tie or not to tie." If a solid-tied horse falls down in a trailer, it can't get up. With a Blocker Tie Ring, the horse can solve its own problem without you risking your life trying to free it

At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Blocker Tie Ring is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 114.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect solution My horse stopped pulling back & flipping over. It’s only been a couple weeks. His injuries from flipping over 8/26/18 are healing. He flipped over between a rock wall & the trailer w/one leg under the trailer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my special needs clients My clients sometimes struggle with knot-tying, so it is wonderful for them to be able to lead their therapy horse up to the grooming area and safely tie the horse using the blocker tie ring completely on their own :) A great step towards feeling more independent, and they beam with pride when they are able to tie their horse without help. Thanks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stopped the pulling back Bought this because my new horse was pulling back when tied. I used this tie ring and he learned to stand without pulling back and freaking out since the ring allowed a little give. He eventually stopped pulling at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great About a month ago my mare was tied to the trailer and was spooked by a horse at another trailer have a fit. When she spooked she sat back and luckily her the snap on her lead broke but unlucky because when it snapped she tripped and flipped over backwards, saddle and all. Luckily she was ok and just going to be sore for a couple of days. I had been meaning to get her a Blocker Tie Ring knowing when she spokes, she sits back. After that incident I bought one that evening! I have several friends that own them and I've seen them work wonders. I just kick myself for not getting one sooner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well and is sturdy but the price is kind of high for what you're getting in my opinion.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a rip-off- no SmartPak customer service. I have asked in three different emails for customer service regarding this item. I ordered 2 but only received one. Not one single response from SmartPak except for a request that I write a review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this thing My old barn got these a couple years ago and it worked wonders for my spooky mare, as soon as she spooked and started pulling back this thing gave her the rope, gave her her head and she calmed down enough for me to grab her. I just recently purchased a horse who likes to pull back on the ties and was worried about him pulling back too far and panicking so I bought one for myself. Haven't used it with him yet but very excited to try it with him!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad to have this in the toolbox! I absolutely love this blocker tie ring. No more worrying about my sensitive mare pulling back and having a panic attack. She is showing new levels of relaxation as her world becomes more supportive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Big improvement over the original design, much easier to use and have put this one in my horse trailer. Comes with all the hardware.
