I also do a lot of trail riding, and sometimes the areas aren't cleared very well, so they also can prevent sticks, and other objects from cutting or jabbing their legs. Like I said...just me.
And every horse I start, or retrain is usually trained with the halter, as to me, it's not the bit that controls a horse. Doesn't seem 'game' or brave to me, but I've always done it that way, so I guess to others it might seem that way!
