Knots

Use only a quick-release knot when tying a horse. If the horse cannot break free from an object when panicked, he might take it with him, doing irreparable damage to himself in the process.

Caution: Never tie a horse to anything by the reins attached to a bridle and bit; if he panicked it is likely the damage to his mouth would be severe or irreparable. Most people already know a slipknot, which is used by many horsemen.
