When this isfitted properly, a yank downward on the free end of the rope w lipull down on the poll and up on the cornersof the mouth at the same time, causing quite a bit of pain. In many cases, this allows the handler togain control over very difficult horses. BASICPHYSICAL RESTRAINTS So far the text has descriied using pain to restrain thehorse, but quality workers do not enjoy inflicting pain. Though being prepared to usepain isnecessary, one should never enjoyit. Fortunately there are other ways to restrainhorses that often eliminate the need for pain.

It is usually best to place the noseband over the nose first for control before fitting the restof the halter (see Figure3-5). When the halter isin place, connect the lead to it,placing the chain, if there is one, in the appropriate position for the particularhorse caught. By convention, this isusually done fromthe horse's left side (the near side), although it works from either side if done properly. The rope itselfwillliterallybreak before the knotwill slip. Using this knotw l l ieliminate the danger of choking the horse.

Thin rope concentrates the pressure in a small surface area, whichcan cause burning andpressure injuries. It is best touse a leather pastern strap or hobble attached to the pastern of the foot the handlerwishes to raise. If no strap isavailable, tie a bowline knot snugly around the pastern (see Figure 2-11). Pass the free end of the rope over the withersso that the handler can hold it on the opposite sideof the horse. If the worker can induce the horse to lift foot, the the handlerpulls the rope at the same time and holds the foot up by pulling the rope down over the withers [see Figure 2-12).
