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.
