I saw this previously and have several problems with the whole thing.
In the first place, each horse should have a halter by its stall, the time to go get these, can mean the difference between losing your life, and horses too. Not to mention, depending on where fire is? You may be able to get to some horses, but not the halters where they are hanging.
Each horse has its own halter by its stall is the rule for a safe barn.
Secondly? The whole concept of taking off the bottom strap and throatlatch off of halter and running lead through ring? One of the dumbest things I've seen. Can't figure out if the lead is supposed to go through mouth, or under chin, but either way is guaranteed to come off over ears when horse pulls back, and then what?
And we've all had horses get high headed, and in panic? You will play hell getting this on horse, going under and up to halter, like normal, means you have better control of horse to boot.
This will not let non horsey people figure out how to halter, and may well end up with horse grabbing/getting lead in mouth and then where will you be? And this halter will not let you tie off horse to keep it from running back into stall either. So, you have accomplished nothing.
Horses will run right back into burning barn, if they are stall horses, and used to only being led in and out of stall, so with no way to tie? Might as well stand there and listen to them scream while they burn to death.
And sadly? People are going to see this foolish idea and think this is thing to do, and it is not.
Horses make me a better person.
