A picket line is a horizontal rope, along which horses are tied at intervals. The rope can be on the ground, at chest height (above the knees, below the neck), or overhead. The overhead form usually is called a high line.
A variant of a high line, used to tie a single horse, is a horizontal pole attached high on the side of a horse trailer. The attachment is designed so that the pole can be removed or folded against the trailer when not in use.

Famous quotes containing the word line:
“We are apt to say that a foreign policy is successful only when the country, or at any rate the governing class, is united behind it. In reality, every line of policy is repudiated by a section, often by an influential section, of the country concerned. A foreign minister who waited until everyone agreed with him would have no foreign policy at all.”
—A.J.P. (Alan John Percivale)
