Leaving the lead rope on in a safe environment is a big recommendation from me, lol... I was 7months pregnant last year when I realized I had skipped this part of training with my gelding, and he freaked when he saw it drag and made the other horses run, and.... it was a mess...
Everyone has such creative ways they halter broke. Listen to them, lol...but I just put slight pressure on my weanling when I halter broke her. She had never been handled before me. So she did one backflip, but then I learned to lesson the pressure. Enough that she felt the pressure, but it didnt freak her out, and I gave her time to think about it. She would eventually get bored and set forward, and I would release the pressure and praise her. Then start again. It took a few days, but she was following me by the end of day 4.
