Okay, I was at a show a few weeks ago with my mare, and when I put her bridle on, I also leave her halter on, so when I need to use the bathroom, get something to eat or drink, ect. I can easily just hook her back up to the trailer. Well, someone came up to me and said 'why do you leave the halter on your horse?' and I said 'so I can hook her up to the trailer quick if I need to' and they said ' why? Just hook her up by her bridle' and I said ' no, I definitely don't think that would be very safe!'
My reason being, if she spooked at something, and pulled back, it could seriously hurt her mouth!! Would anyone else have done this???
I am curious to know if anyone actually does do it?
