one ear headstall

Does anyone use them? Does anyone have any problems with them?I think they look neat but I want to make sure they are practical before I buy one. Thanks!!

I like them. I have used them. I didnt really see a difference in the horse.

I have heard that the ones without a throatlatch can slip off-especially if you are trail riding.....but I like them for showing.

I agree with franknbeans. For trail riding, I won't use anything without a throatlatch. All it takes is one head shake or the horse rubbing his head on something to get the headstall off. I think they are fine for arena riding or showing though.

I have one without a throat latch and I have had my horse ditch it with a head shake at least three times. Of course, I do have him in a snaffle which doesn't help in the least. I'd definitely stick to one with a throat latch, especially for trail riding.

I have heard many horror stories about one-ears. I would stick with a simple throat latch headstall.

This past summer I worked at a barn that used one eared head stalls with throatlatches. They never had problems with them. Just make sure your horse is ok with messing with that ear.

I ride in a one ear and I have never had any problem with it. I usually am trail riding. But I recently attached a tie-down on it and it still is fine.. the tie down is for my horse that likes to have his head set way too high
