    My horse and most of the horses I know in fact, only have a halter on them when they need to be used (ie, leading, grooming, lunging). Its hard to find break-away halters where I live, but I do have one in case I ever had to leave Ricky's halter on. I don't know why but like no saddleries around where I live sell break-away halters. Is this the same around all of Australia?

    Just a note though, I've never heard of a horse in Australia being killed due to having a halter left on. Maybe it is more prevalent in the US?
    Or you just haven't heard of it. I know there are a lot of people here that leave thier halters on and I have seen a couple that have been killed or seriously injured when they were caught up on something. Maybe most Aussies have enough sense to take the halters off. I can see why you would leave one on your gelding though.

    I keep my halters on 24/7, unless I'm washing them. I have breakaway halters, and of course "Junior" has been through about 5 breakaway straps.
