Knots

Join ropes together, attach ropes to a post or rail, or attach ropes to an animal.

Hitches

are used to attach a rope to a post or rail - only think securing the rope to the post is the pressure of one rope coil wrapping upon the others.

Splices

Are used to permanently to another - individual strands from each rope are interwoven with strands from the other.

Reefer's Knot (Quick-Release Square Knot)

A good non-slip knot for tying ends of rope together and can easily be released. An advantage is that it can be tied under tension.

Bowline Knot

A non-slip knot used to form a loop that will not tighten or draw down when placed around an animal's body or post.

Quick-Release Knot

The standard way to tie an animal to a post. A variation of a slipknot that can be released very quickly, even when under tension. This knot should never be tied around the neck or body of an animal.

Honda Knot

A knot used to form a small loop in the end of a rope in order to pass the rest of the rope through, forming a much larger loop, or lariat.

Square Knot

Excellent for tying two nearly equal size ropes together or for tying the ends of a single rope together to form a loop. Used mainly to secure gates or cage openings. Also used to tie a cloth or gauze around the limb of an injured animal.

Double Half Hitch

A quick and easy knot which acts like a slipknot and is a convenient way to tie up the end of a rope.
