Acts different with different halters(help)

Ive been training my arab Sinister with a rope halter,I always use that one when he is training and he is an angel never gives me a problem,very respectful,does what I ask with enthusiasm but....As soon as I put his "pretty" halter on him he acts like a idiot( pulls ,trys to run me over stuff like that).Someone suggested adding a rope band behind his ears on the pretty one.Wanted to know what you all thought. Thanks!! DW

Rope halters are thinner, causing more PSI (equal P, less SI, resulting in more PSI) that's why your horse is good in a rope halter.

Isolate what exact pressures cause your horse to misbehave in the other halter, then work on getting a nice soft response to those pressures in the rope halter.

Rope halters have two knots for pressure on the nose and two on each side of the jaw. You should be able to get a response from any halter you put on a horse. It is in the give and take method. A rope halter has better control because of the "bite" pressure it has. It can be misused if not handled correctly.

When you use the rope halter, do you use pressure/release? If he does well with pressure and release you should be able to convert that to any halter. I'm not sure if this makes sense but do a lot of pressure/release with both. Good luck
