We have approximately 50 horses where I am at and only 2 have halters on 24/7. They are both from rescue situations and are extremely hard to catch to halter. They both have their halters tied on with a thin leather piece so that if it does get caught on something it will break off, and have less of a chance of injuring or killing the horse.
If you must leave a halter on a horse either tie it on with a piece of leather or buy a breakaway halter. Some horses get rubs on their faces from the hlaters easier than others as well. Just my 2 cents. Hope that helps
No. I do not. If you have to for whatever reason, please make sure it has a breakaway crown so if they get hung up, they have a good chance of snapping the breakaway leather and getting free with minimal damage. Absolutely do NOT turn your horse loose with a rope halter - that is a good way to start a wreck.
The possibilites with a horse that has a halter on:
-the horse could get hurt or its halter caught in something
-another horse may get its feet in another horses halter
(if its a foal or just playing around)
-the halter will get worn being outside in the weather
(unless your horse is in a stable environment..no pun intended)
---I would say leave the halter off its not really worth the risk...
Unless your moving your horse around alot or tend to lose your halter!
