There are so many reasons why not to. First horses are accident prone idiots and they will find a way to get hung up in them, even if they are breakways. Second the halters WILL mark their faces and leave rubbed patches, not nice.
I had a poor 25 year old mule brought to me one time and the idiot people had the halter on too tight. It caused a sore which then got infected and then infested with fly/gnat larva! When I got her, her neck was swollen and I started treating immediately with everything known to man, but she was too far gone and we lost her. THE WORST REASON why you should ALWAYS take the halter off.
