Equi-Ping allows handlers to safely tether their horse whilst at home or to a trailer/horsebox when away from the yard.
Under normal circumstances the Equi-Ping keeps the horse tethered safely and only comes into play if the horse panics for some reason and pulls back sharply.
Equi-Ping is designed to ‘ping’ open at this point helping to minimise potentially serious injuries if the horse continues to struggle. The unique design has been robustly tested in a professional racing yard to ensure its reliability and effectiveness.
This stable equipment product comes in a range of colours and is a must have piece of safety kit.
It’s safer than string, time after time.
We recommend the Equi-Ping is attached to a metal tethering ring which is securely fastened to something sturdy and strong.
The Equi-Ping now comes with a security sleeve that slides over the mechanism (there are two small bump stops that hold the sleeve in place).
When using the Equi-Ping for the first time we suggest you push only 2 of the arrowheads into the mechanism and slide the sleeve over. You can always adjust it to have 3 or 4 of the arrowheads pushed into place if you need more tension before it pings.
The leadrope can be easily pulled through the Equi-Ping and tied with a quick release knot.
If the horse should spook or panic for any reason approximately 80 kilos worth of pressure will open the unique mechanism helping to alleviate the horse’s fear of being restricted, which if allowed to continue can cause injury to the horse or equipment.
The Equi-Ping once opened can simply be re-attached to the tethering ring and the mechanism pushed back together for re-use with the security sleeve.
It is not recommended that a horse should be tied up directly by a bridle, bit or reins.
It is not recommended to leave a horse unattended for a significant length of time whilst tied up.
Where possible always tie your horse in a safe environment away from potential hazards that could harm it.
