May I ask why you are asking for an unbreakable halter? Instead, perhaps some training suggestions if (I'm guessing) you have a horse that doesn't tie well?

Good question, JDI.

Not sure I see why we need huge font either.


To answer you question, yes there are reasonably unbreakable halters out there. There is a reason most people suggest not leaving horses turned out and such in a rope halter.

I am also curious why you would be asking for a "break-proof" halter. As Always said, a rope halter is an excellent suggestion and I agree, never turn a horse out in one.

Rope halters. Good quality ones are best but I have never seen a nylon halter that was unbreakable.

Halters break for a reason. If a horse is pulling hard enough to break the halter then they are likely pulling hard enough to hurt themselves. This is then about training not tack.
