There’s nothing like a stock tie to make an accomplished equestrian feel like they are all thumbs.
After years of cheating by using pre-tied stock ties, I took the plunge and bought one that required the ability to tie a square knot in a mirror and have it come out looking elegant.
The process gets easier when you think of it as tying two square knots. It’s also helpful if you use a tie that has some stiffness (think starch). Don’t forget to have a good quality stock pin on hand with a hardened steel shaft. The cheap ones will bend as you try to push them through the layers of fabric which is most annoying!
