Equi-Ping is a safety tether release for horses and ponies. When tethering you can simply attach Equi-Ping to the metal ring on your stable wall, stall or trailer, and then tie the leadrope to it. If your mount panics and pulls back, the Equi-Ping is designed to open when a certain stress point is reached to help avoid injury. The safety mechanism is easy to open and close. Leadropes smoothly slip through the Equi-Ping making for ease of use.
