Okay, so our rope halter is just about too small for Aies and it's kind of starting to get on my nerves (it's always been stiff, which I hate). So, I'm in the market for a new halter. I'd really prefer a flat nylon halter. Heck, I'd really prefer a flat leather halter, but I can't afford one right now, so nylon will have to do. Anyway, my friend came across this one on horse.com and I very much like the price.
Tough-1 Draft 3-Ply Nylon Halter w/Snap - Horse.com
Does anyone have any experience with Tough-1 halters? Does this seem like an okay halter? I'm curious about the ring on top of the noseband. What is its purpose and do you think it's removable?
I also have issues with sizing. I'm not sure how much Aires weighs, exactly, but I do know the approximate measurements of his head. I do know he's too big for a large horse halter, but when I tried a draft halter on him (which, admittedly, was this past summer and his head has grown since then), it was too big. I believe it was a large draft halter, though. So, does anyone know how to accurately size a draft halter?
We'd obviously get it in the red.
