I don't know what type of rope is used in the halter you use or the type of knot you use, but every knot I've seen with a rope halter will tighten, not come undone or slip loose.
The only way I could think of it happening is with a thicker and stiff rope.
I've only had one nylon web halter break and that was the buckle breaking. I have had several lead ropes and tie downs break before the halter breaks. Posted via Mobile Device
