Maybe someone can answer this for me. In recent months and years, I have begun to see more and more people using rope halters. That, in itself, isn't the question because I use them as well. However, I see more and more people handling horses with the halters tied on like this.
And I am not picking on Parelli in particular, it's just that he and his students are where I most often see it.

My question is this: Why? Why do they have the halter hanging halfway off the horse's face? Is there some special purpose that none of the rest of us are privy to? That, to me, is an improperly tied and fitted halter.
IMHO, a properly tied rope halter should look like this
