What do you think of this mare in Halter?

We used to do halter a while ago and were sucessful , untilwe moved her to a new barn and she got really miscared for (feeding wise) and now we are going to start doing halter and I wanted to see your opinions on that!:)We do everything but halter.

I'm not a halter person, so take my opinion as you want. I really like her body, but her neck and head seem like they belong to a different horse.

Do you want a confo critique? If so this would fit better under the critique section.

Any horse can have the training to do halter, but ultimatley the decision is up to you.

If you want a confo critique maybe get some pictures during the day because since she is a dark color it is hard to judge her fairly in these conditions

I like the looks of her. I would suggest looking for a halter that will enhace her head. Her head looks a tad bit plain but a congress cut halter might spice it up a bit.

One like this may help.

Im assuming you show AQHA. She looks like a typical 'performance halter' mare. I think she's cute. I think it may be just the angle of the pic that makes her head look plain as LauraB said. Would have to see some other pics of her head to say anything about that

I think you should work on having her lead properly, I noticed you have the chain lead attached around her head, work with her on leading on a loose lead line, you shouldn't need to attach it that way.

This is a halter mare with a show halter and lead on. You need to show with the chain in halter. This is not a leading issue, just proper halter turn-out. Obviously this mare doesn't have leading issues if she's standing there dead-head with no one holding her.

I agree with LauraB on teh halter choice, and I would recommend trying a congress also. Let us know how it goes! Maybe some more pictures too?

Like I said earler only comment if you know a thing or two about halter
That's how you show and btw this mare has been trained very well and she is not a very high strung horse 7 years of training pays off. That's how you showe halter with the chain like that
