#whatknot  #horsetie #highwaymanshitch
in this video I show how to tie two quick hitches, the highwayman's hitch and the horse tie.  both are quick and easy to tie although they have slightly different uses they are both great knots to have in your mental tool kit.  I use them for camp and canoe work but i am sure you will find many more uses for both of them.  Quick to tie and even quicker to release.
