One emergency people don't think enough about is how they would free a horse that got a tied lead, cross tie or other type of rope wrapped about the horse's neck, head or halter. There are other situations like this that can happen to other parts of a horse's body - with horses anything can happen and it is good to be prepared --- kinda like knowing where your fire extinguisher is, if it is functional and how to use it.

With a rope emergency, using a knife with a point in an emergency near the neck or head of a panicking horse is not the best idea, and we've found that neither smooth nor serrated blades work fast enough. We just ordered the product attached to this post. Have a look at the video. Let us know if you have used one. We plan to test it on different thicknesses, plies, and types of webbing, rope and leather as in the video and will report on this again soon.
