I have 2 TWH and I don't have that problem with the halter... The only problem it may have is it sags a little in the bottom , but I went and got a smaller halter and it fixed the problem. Maybe your tack is to big and you need something smaller?

I don't have any bridle issues on my boys and prefer no head band, just a loop over their ear to keep their bridle on.

Halters, that's a different story. Their noses are big enough that I have to buy up one or two sizes just so the nose piece fits. That means, without punching new holes, the halter will slip down.

Just a guess but it sounds like your halter is too big. A tw mare that I had was really quite dainty and I had to buy a cob sized bridle for her.

Try the next sized down from what you currently have with adjustable nose band..also, if you don't already have a bridle path cut, you might want to. It'll help to keep everything in place.

I know what you mean by "pointy head". My mare looked like she had a knot right behind her ears..part of her conformation and nothing noticable unless you really looked. She could be a real pill and marish a good part of the time and yup, I called her either Knot Head or Mule

My racking horse has no fit problem with halters, but when I got a bridle for him I needed a cob size and then had to order a horse sized browband because the band for the cob sized bridle was pinching him.
