Sounds like this one literally is a hitching post, so
amenity=hitching_post would be fine. But ideally IMO we'd want something
described by function more than form, so people wouldn't feel like the
need to invent a new tag for each style. (A ring, a doghouse, a
designated indoor room, a fenced pen...)

Actually, this reminds me of bicycle parking more than anything else...
so amenity=animal_parking? Adding animal=dog (horse, camel, whatever)
would mesh well with the existing use of the animal=* tag.
