Yea, I'm interested too. Do you use a rope halter, or just a rope around the neck for balance? I really want to move my mare to a hack. My gelding was started in a rope halter. I have him in a hack right now. It helps me get his attention. That sounds bad, but I am a light handed rider, and he is like riding a big dog. He gawks at things on the trails. That don't bother me, b/c I just lean over and tap his neck and say his name to get his attention back. But if another horse would trot near us, he's get excited and want to go without being cued, and he ignored the rope all together. The hack works great at getting his attention enough to realize he is carrying me. LOL, he tries very hard to please me, but gets caught up tin the moment sometimes. Sorry I rambled, lol... I love that boy!
