We use a rope halter because that's all I can find that will fit my beastly. I do like the rope halter, though. I'd love to have a leather halter (for shows and such), but I'd have to get it custom made because Aires' head is such an odd size. Too big for large or extra-large horse, but too small for draft.

Depends on what my plans of doing are. If Im just going out to groom him, Ill use my leather halter, if Im working with him, I use the rope halter. I like the response I get much better when he's wearing a leather halter. I do use a nylon, but that's usually when Im working on a little bit of lungeing!

Rope halter for teaching
Nylon for farrier (has no breakaway so he is NOT tied in it)
Leather for taking long walks in neighbors huge pasture

He has a slight indention on his nose from wearing a halter WAY to long before I got him so I try to change them up pretty regularly.

ETA: Is it silly that one horse has 9 halters?
