The product, which won a British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) innovation award, was created by Newmarket trainer Martin Smith after witnessing an incident in which a racehorse pulled a wall down onto itself.
Equi Ping's Karen Roberts told Horse&Hound: “Martin noticed twine was becoming thicker and stronger and thought there must be a better way of tying a horse. These break more easily and are safer.”
Clayton Fredericks, who uses Equi-Pings, added: “They are reliable and safe, saving gear from breaking and preventing injuries to horses’ necks.
“Baling twine has become a thing of the past at our yard,” Mr French and Ms Roberts added.
