Manger Knot

Use: This knot should be use when tying a horse to a stationary object. Its main advantage is that it can be quickly untied, so if the horse starts to panic it can be quickly freed from the rope before it dangerously tangles itself.

How to tie:


  1. Make a loop around whatever the horse is being tied to.
  2. Make a second loop in the running end and lay it on the standing part (that is, the end the horse is tied to).
  3. Make a bight on the free end, pass it beneath the standing part and through the second loop (made in step two).
  4. Tighten the second loop.
  5. Untie by pulling on the running end.
