I'm sorry if this has already been posted, but I'd just like to know why people don't like non-breakaway halters on horses turned out. I mean, I understand they could get caught on something and the horse could hurt itself, but are there other reasons?
At the barn I board at, the majority of the horses have halters on during fall/winter/spring since lessons are going on and horses are constantly being pulled in or put out. In summer, they usually don't have them on as much and instead have fly masks. Should I be concerned about Rainy having her halter on?
Generally she doesn't have it on as much as the other horses, since she's rarely, if ever, used in lessons. But we've never had a problem with keeping halters on, so I guess I'm just a little overconcerned/worried.
Also, where could I find a breakaway halter/what is a good brand of breakaway halter?
Thanks in advance, and again, I'm sorry if this has already been posted.
