This thread was prompted by several comments I have recieved in the past few months. "Why?"; "Aren't you worried she's going to run off with you?"; "How do you control that horse with just a halter?"; "You compete like that?"; and the best of all -- "Are you one of those natural horsemanship nutjobs?" XDD
It's practically a conversation piece!
Anyway, I like my rope halter. For no other reason than that my horse likes it. And whatever works works.
