    We leave ours on. They are turned out in a large feild and its just simpley a pain to try to get them on or to get them inside without halters. We always have cheap halters on though that would break off if needed just to make sure.

    Off, I never leave halters on. Its just another thing that can get caught up on something. Just don't see the point.

    I'll leave the halter on if turnout time is for 1-2 hours but if its half day or more then halter off unless its a breakaway.

    We usually take the halter off because theres a lot of brush,trees,ect in one part of the pasture so ya..

    My mare only has a halter on during the day to keep her fly mask on but she is in her own yard with little to catch it on. The rest of the time it is off.

    My gelding had his on for a while when we first got him but that was because he had big issues and getting it on to start with was a hassle. He is now ok so he only has it on for the same reasons as my mare.

    Otherwise I just don't see the need for it. I know I wouldnt like something like that on me all the time

    I always keep mine on in the pasture. When we get permanant stalls built they will get them off when stalled but for now they seem to have no problems with them being on. A coulple weeks ago my yearling got her halter snap stuck on the wire fence and when sombody nearby shot somthing she ripped the fence down the metal part on her halter broke and she was fine though. The only other time was when she got it stuck on a loose bolt as a weanling but she just stood there untill we let her free. My uncle never takes his horses halters off he never has a problem with it untill they get them off in the pasture which his one mare is quite skilled at. I think part of her standing still though is we got her from my uncle and as a weanling he ties them in their stall 24 hrs a day for about 2 weeks he gives them just enough room to reach their food and takes them to water twice a day this also helps them to lead and count on us.
