    Question Rope Halters?

    What do people think of rope halters lots of poeple I know say that they are better then your normal ones!! What do you all think.

    I only use rope halters, even on my old broke horses. They last longer, they fit a wider range of horses, plus, they have no hardware to rust or corrode. They are tougher and a horse is very unlikely to break one, no matter if they pull a little or a whole lot. Also, I just like the look of them more than a regular nylon halter.

    I think people like them for their functionability. Like smrobs said, they are very adjustable, so they fit a wide range of horses. I think they are more handy for that reason too. It saves the time that would be spent looking for your ponys halter, your arabians halter, and the one for your draft. With a rope halter, you can just grab 3 of them and throw them on each horse.

    I like them, especially when I am working on ground manners. They have a nice punch to them that a nylon doesn't with out a chain. I think they are a little bit of a hassle to get on and off, but that is really me just being overly lazy. I don't specifically have a preference over either type of halter. I just put on what I think my horse needs.

    I like them for the little bit of extra lightness you get in the horse. It's really uncomfortable for them to lean on the halter, and the release of pressure is really quick and clear.

    I started using one on my filly and will not go back to the regular style halter. She has more of a response and is way lighter. She respects the slightest touch of me tugging it. Love it!

    I don't like rope halters because it's easier for me buckle a nylon halter quickly and also I can't cross tie my horse with a rope halter because there is nothing to hook onto. And it is harder to take the leadrope off the halter, if you can at all.

    There is a trainer here in Indiana that makes and sells them online Pintura Springs ~ AQHA, ApHC, APHA and TWHBEA Horses for sale. both the regular and training halters - in all sizes!

    It's what the (previous) owners of my mare use. She calls 'em "Cowboy halters". I'd like one but a thin one - not one that is bulky like some I've seen.

    And Christine - The ones I've seen, you can clip the lead rope to the halter, but if that's an issue, you could ask the person making the halter (if you buy it with specifications) to add a loop where the knots are so you can still crosstie. Just a suggestion!

    Thankyou from what you guys are saying I think that a rope halter would be best for a couple of my horses beacause they pull back on the lead rope a bit!!
