Hey guys! I'm thinking about getting a rope halter and I want to know your opinions! I'm planning on doing some ground work with Jack this summer and I think a rope halter would help!
So give me your experiences, opinions, etc!
I love them!! I make my own, so I have a few, and they are so easy to throw on and go. And my horse responds to the noes knots very well. So sometimes I will hook my gaming reins to them and go for a bareback ride!!
i hope that's how Jack is. I tried using a regular D-ring snaffle on him and he didn't respond at all, so I had to go back to the twisted bit. Maybe this will change him somewhat! Haha :)
I strongly caution you to please consider using the D-ring again, and work with a trainer to help train Jack to respond to the bit. I bet he's just hard-mouthed, and needs a tune-up to listen to the bit better.
I would really worry about you using just a halter and expecting to get amazing results. I worry that Jack won't respond and you won't know how to respond.
The man who trained jack when he went away to boot camp recommended a twisted. Jack just had his teeth done, so he might respond to the d-ring now. I'll try it.
I'm not expecting amazing results! Just need to do some groundwork with him
