Making a Homemade Blocker Tie

I took an old jointed snaffle bit that I had laying around and used a grinder with a cutting wheel to cut the join as shown. This gave me two usable parts to make 2 tie up rings. Each ring is 60mm diameter.

I screwed a 50mm eyelet bolt into the post and attached an 8mm D shackle (sometimes called a U bolt) as shown in the photos below.
