We always used to cross-tie them between 2 posts or trees. Answer: This depends on how much your horse likes to be bathed. If the horse stands well for being groomed and doesn't mind water, soap, etc. leave the halter on and use a lead rope to tie the horse off to a solid object ( sturdy Fencing, tree etc.)or have someone else hold the lead rope while you bathe, this also gives you the ability to move the horse if the ground gets too wet or muddy ( hint: if you wash on the grass you probably won't need to move that much or if grass isn't available put down some hay.) If the horse does NOT like water or a bath use the same method but cross tie ( one lead rope from each of the cheek rings at a 90 degree angle to the horse and keep very little slack in the lead ropes)it will also help to have another person with you to work with the horse, distraction, treats and reassurance all can help to make this a more pleasant experience for the horse and you both. Also, if the horse does not like the hose, try keeping the stream of water right up against the skin, use warm water if possible and wash the head with a small towel, if that still isn't enough try blinders. Keeping the session short and starting from the rear of the horse may also give you better may take a week top give the horse a bath but it will pay off in the long run.

When you tie a horse to a post do you tie a loose not that will give if he spooks or runs or you should never tie a horse or tie a very tight not to stop it from getting away or none of these?

When training a horse, you wanna tie a knot that is tighter but will give. but if you are talking about a trained horse, you should be able to just tie it loose. so if the horse does spook it can get away. because if the horse does spook and cannot get away, the horse will go into flight mood and will more than likely break the halter of lead and run for a long time; where as if the horse can get away he/she might run away from the post, but will more than likely stop before he/she gets to far. u should tie your horse up with a quick release knot

Is it safe to muck-out with a horse in your stables?

Yes if the horse is well behaved and is not aggressive. If you are not sure of the horse then put a head collar on and tie it up in the stable. I have two horses one is a angel in the box and stays out of the way and lets you muck out , the other I have to tie up as she threatens to bite if you have anything that she sees as a threat in your hand. It all comes down to common sense , if the horse doesn't like people in the stable then muck out when it is turned out or tie up somewhere safe.

When would you use a halter?

Halters are the most used horse tack! Before you do anything with horses, you should know about it. Halters are how you lead the horse. You use a halter whenever you lead a horse or tie it up. The lead rope attaches to the halter and is what you hold and tie it with.
