What is your favorite type of halter?

At the barn I hear people say all kinds of things about which halter is best. Some like leather, other's nylon, others rope, etc. etc. Me, I am partial to breakaway halters and leather halters. Just wondering what everyone else is partial to.

I don't like brass otherwise I'd probably have an all leather, but they aren't easy to find in nickel or stainless. I do like my Weaver Elite breakaway (nickel hardware, yay!) which has adjustable noseband and cheek clip which isn't a dog leash type clip - those were requirements of mine.

My horse only wears her halter when being lead/tied. Never in turnout, but you never know when a breakaway might come in handy.

I have the Sage color shown first in the photo from Chicks (which also has the best pricing on this halter)


I'm thinking about getting sky blue (2nd halter) as a secondary one... just can't decide if that's what I want colorwise. :) I DO like getting to choose colors.

I like my rope halter the best. It makes Lacey's head look delicate and she respects it just a bit more than she does a nylon halter.
However, I've never used a leather halter so I don't know if I'd like that ever better...

Breakaways on most horses, nylons on the babies & for trailering, leather for shows :)

No halters in the field.

Nico wears a leather halter I've had since I got my first horse. I prefer leather because it is fixable and breakable. We do things backwards at our barn...our horses have halters on in the field and they have them off in the stable.

Just a plain ol nylon halter since it's only worn while being led. Corrals open directly into the main pastures so we only put it on if the horses are being taking into the small side pasture, being groomed or the farrier is there.

In the pasture, I will leave a leather (breakable) halter on a horse, IF I choose to leave a halter on for some reason.

For working, I like Rope halters, but teach a horse to work in any halter 'lightly'...I don't want him pulling on my just because I have a flat halter on him!

I love rope halters! Lovelovelovelove 'em.
But I like leather ones and nylon ones as well because they're. Pretty :)

All my horses have breakaway halters. You just never know. When I turn them into the back fields, I usually keep the halter on the stallion because he's a pain to catch, and the breakaway makes the situation of them having halters on in the pasture feel a lot safer. I have a rope halter for when I'm working with my draft (who's very pushy) and one for my Paso Fino because he learns quicker with that type of pressure. I have a leather halter for the horses I plan to show because it makes them look nicer in the show ring.

Leather halters at shows, nylon around the barn, and no halters on horses outside.
I don't own horses that spook (well..usaully not) so I don't feel the need to have a breakable halter.
