There two basic types of rope. Static and dynamic. Dynamic rope is made to stretch a good bit. It is used for rock climbing and mountain climbing a good bit for fall protection. It will stretch and not just slam someone to a stop or worse yet just snap from being shock loaded. If your halter is stretching alot you may have gotten a dynamic type rope.

I need to learn how to tie some halters up. I'm decent at knots just haven't had the time to sit down a figure it out.

This may help out a little. Tie Your Own Simple Rope Halter - Natural Horse Supply

Truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Second it is violently opposed. Third it is accepted as self evident.

Or try this one:

Rope Halter with Fiador Knot

Always remember to tie you halter a little bit smaller than needed, because while good rope will not stretch, the knots WILL tighten down with use and it will seem like the halter has stretched out a bit.

Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.

Does anyone ever make halters out of twisted rope? We throw a few hundred feet of this stuff away every day at work. I brought some home so I could practice making rope halters out of it.

I found this rope on ebay: Anchor Rope Dock Line 3 8" x 100' Black Nylon Made USA | eBay
It seems to be a decent price. About $6 per halter. what do you think.
