A while ago I asked for recommendations for a gate latch that is easy to open from horseback so I could replace the fiddly chain on my arena gate.

In case anybody else looks for the same thing I thought I would update.

I eventually installed what Sioux Steel call a Cowboy Latch. It's exactly what I was looking for. A latch with a tall handle so it is at a comfortable hand height on a 16hh-17hh horse.
