Horse sneezing

Whenever I put halter on my qh she starts to sneeze for couple mins like crazy. I used different halters and she still does it (doesn't do it when I put bridle on though). What could be a reason for that?

that is weird. And it doesn't matter what type of halter you put on her? Weeeeird
The only thing I could think of is that it's possibly bothering her nose, like a feather to our nose, causing her to sneeze....but other than that I don't know

Sonny, it's just when I put it on and couple mins after that. After that she doesn't. I also have to admit she sneeze at strangers coming close and trying to pet her.

that's really weird.
How about getting a video of you putting on the halter so we can see exactly what you are doing and what your horse is doing?

Is she sneezing or snorting. Lol I know it sounds dumb, but I know alot of horses that snort when they are nervous with new people and new things. Maybe that is her way of snorting. Lol IDK. Just a thought.

My Qh, Abe does a snort/sneeze, sorta like he's blowing dust out of his nose but not a full blown SNORT! He tends to do it when he's not happy about something. Being tied when the lunch wagon comes by for instance.

I can't take a video - don't have equipment. I wish I could!

She's definitely not nervous. My paint who is always nervous about something never does it though. I know it sounds stupid but could it be just her being not very happy about possible work or other people?

Appyt, it's a real full snort. I'm getting all dirty from top to the bottom if I'm not fast enough to jump from the way. And it always seems to me she's --intentionally-- targeting towards me (or strangers). At least she's very good at doing it right into your face.

I had a gelding who would do that full snort.. I referred to it as a "stallion" snort. He would do it at things that bothered him, made him unsure etc.. Did it once while investigating a snake.

Abe can get me pretty dirty if I'm in front of him too.

Boo sneezes like crazy if he has anything on his face that sits too low - - i'd check her halter to make sure it's within an inch of her cheek bones
