These have been developed with advice from a top course builder to ensure that safety and ease of use are the top priorities.The Roping Post is made in UPVC and simply requires soap and water occasionally to maintain a smart appearance. No more painting! A metal pin is moulded into the base of the roping post for ease of ground penetration. Using the foot plate simply press the post into the ground. No more sledge hammers or split ends! Safety. It is vital that if a horse gets into trouble and runs into the rope that it detaches from the post, the smooth plastic allows this to happen. This wouldnt happen if wooden posts were used as the top of the wooden post gets knurled over as the post is hammered into the ground, similarly with metal posts or electric fencing posts. Roping Posts are about half the weight of timber posts. Available in two lengths, 0.9m and 1.2m. Both have a smooth cap and a rope stop which stops the rope sliding down the post. The base of the Roping Post has a foot plate to aid ground penetration.
