I recently went to take a lesson at anotoher barn to gain experience around other horses and get tips from a different trainer/instructor. Well I didn't care for it there because the lady didn't seem to know much at all.
She said one thing that sparked my interest though and it was:
"Never tie a horse with a rope halter because they could seriously hurt themselves around the poll area."
Is this true or was she just coming up with false logic? Because I have been tieing the horses I work with,with a rope halter for a long time and nothing bad has ever actually happened.
