I’ve got to admit I was skeptical when I first saw the Savvy Horse Highline kit. No knots? Yea right.

Well it works.

Merriam-Webster gives the definition of Ingenious as “marked by originality, resourcefulness, and cleverness in conception or execution.

The Savvy Horse Highline is ingenious in every sense of that definition.

Think of the scores of maritime vessels that are secured every day using this simple rope cleat design and you’ll soon realize just how practical it is.  If a rope cleat can keep a moving. bobbing, and weaving boat at bay for weeks on end it can certainly hold your horse overnight!

The remainder of the Savvy Horse Highline Kit consists of tree saver straps to protect the trees that you’re tying to. The straps are thoughtfully designed with one ring slightly smaller than the other so that it can easily slip through.

Of course all the benefits of the Rope Cleat and the Horse Positioners would be for not without a sturdy rope to complete the highline. The Savvy Horse Kit doesn’t disappoint. A heavy 5/8 inch rope finished with a thimble end will hold up to whatever abuse you can through at it.

For trailhead camping the Savvy Horse Kit will make setting up camp quick easy and must importantly secure.
