I've not run into that problem with the halters I've got (cheapie Mustang brand).
    Yes, "melted" is a perfect description! :) Could you, please, share where you get those "Mustang" halters from (I've never heard of them)?

    Smrobs, you GO GIRL!!
    Very well done. I am picky, picky about tack adjustment. MY problem is that I don't have a halter that really is big enough for my 16'3hh gelding. I just need to save up pennies and buy him a draft horse halter--no joke--I thought one made for up-to-1,600 pounds would fit, but it doesn't!! Those TWH owners know what I mean--TWH's have the thickest faces!! My horse "Tyke", (1970-1998, RIP) was a 15'1hh TWH/QH cross and I had to buy him the halter I later on used for my almost 16'hh QH, bc of his wide face.
    Thanks for the really GREAT photos--they do better than the text. EVERY time I see somebody with a cinch off-center, or the breastplate connection with the girth over by the inside of the leg, instead of centered, or a halter on the nose's cartilege, or a curb chain/leather too tight/loose, or the cinch/girth close than 4 fingers from the elbow,etc. I want to go over and fix it. VERY ocd...=b
