    Lead Chains?

    Wasn't quite sure where to put this...

    Hey guys! I've had this question for a really long time: Some lead ropes have that long chain with a snap at the end, I know how to use them (I work with 2 stallions so I use them a lot, actually) but if I don't need it can I just clip it to the ring on the halter without wrapping the chain over the nose or under the chin? Or is that unsafe somehow?

    I'm quite sure it won't.

    We have some leads like that and we just snap them on the bottom and use regularly. The only issue is that they make it a bit weighted, but it doesn't get in the way or anything.

    It's fine and completely safe =]

    Yep it's fine

    Just be wary that a chain is more apt to snap under pressure than just plain rope(:

    Okay, awesome! Thanks!

    Seen it used like a normal lead by professionals so should be fine. My only concern would be if the horse pulled back and it broke where the chain met the rope (possibly a weak point) as the chain would then spring back at the horse and possibly get him/her in the face, maybe even the eye.
