I have a couple of different grooming halters and I love them. Now, I don't use them every single time I groom, but do use them a good bit of the time. If I am giving a horse a bath I will always use a grooming halter as the regular turnout halter will be dirty no matter how much I clean it and when wash the face the dirt just washing right back in. If I am doing a super big groom I will also use the grooming halter, or if I am clipping or even trimming I use the grooming halter also. Another thing the grooming halter is excellent for is if my horse has lost his halter I will grab the grooming halter and lead rope to bring him in that way I have more control then just a rope over the neck.
