How to tie a rope halter??

This might be a stupid question but how do I tie my rope halter normally when I try to tie it it is always coming undone or to the point where it is really loose and my horse can slip it off! Is there a special way to keep it from doing this??
Thanks

Hay is 4 horses and corn is for dogs!!

To describe with words, here is how I tie a rope halter:

Put the rope through the loop from the top down (from the back of the loop, so to speak), like a normal halter.

Wrap the rope around the right side, under the loop ( or under itself, above the loop, like in the picture shown below), and pull the tail through where you wrapped it over.

Picture: https://lh3.ggpht.com/-pgInc5yHKyM/T...ot%2BWrong.JPG

Is this how you are doing it? Perhaps your halter is made of some kind of material that is slick/doesn't tighten well? This should hold no matter what, because of friction.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
