The only thing that I've used of Monty Roberts was the join-up and I thought it was stupid and it did not help my horse at all.

$44 bucks for that ugly/bulky nylon halter by Roberts? And I thought Parelli was expensive

Well thank you for that. I was respectful of your Parelli stuff...

I looked it up. It seems good. I personally like it better than using a chain over the nose (though I do not own the Dully halter, just going by how it looks)

$44-isn't really all that expensive. (Here on Dover Saddlery, it is being sold for $39.50)

I also feel that it is better than this halter

Just as an interesting piece of information... at the Dover price, it's 43 cents cheaper than the Parelli rope halter....

I do enjoy using Parelli..

I tend to mix various styles and come out with a combination where I get the best natural effects. I do like Parelli, but in my opinion, a person may have to search out other avenues to complete some tasks as not all horses and people respond or mesh well with just one training method.

As for the halter.. The links that i clicked on, and viewed, seem pretty much the same as a common flat halter with minor changes. Again, only my thought, but for $44.. If it works for you. I am a tried and true sort, and a general rope halter is where I get the absolute best results. It still amazes me that such a simple design can be so effective and surpass so many mechanical and "new design" types!

You know, I've gotta say, I'm impressed that a topic with the word Parelli in his hasn't turned into a flame fest! I think we are all doing pretty well, don't you think? lol.

Parrelli has rediculous stuff for outrageous amounts. The "natural horsemanship bridle?" come on...and his rope halters? I could make one of those for so much cheaper.

....Well...

My trainer LOVES to use these rope halters. They arent "Parelli". I mean, Parelli sells a version, I just looked it up and the prices are pretty comparable to the version Rods sells, although I found them at really affordable prices at discount places. They are a really good training halter, horses learn about pressure and release with them.

I did find this "control halter", I'm not sure if it does what the Monty Roberts halter does or not, but it's only $14

Control Halter - Poll Strap - Horse.com

I wish I could do a comparison but I just use regular nylon or leather halters. I only use my chain for showing and that's becuase you are supposed too....
