Yeah, the rope is attached the same way on the other side and you attach your lead rope to that. It puts pressure on their nose but IMO is much better than having a chain there...puts the same pressure but is much less harsh. Hunter responded really well. The rest is just like a regular halter. I was adjusting it to fit in the picture.

I'm sure you probably could. But I really like this because it is set up to do the job it is supposed to do. I think a lead rope could get awkward to use. This also releases the pressure quickly when needed.

I like that. I've done the same idea with a regular halter, but having the noseband of the actual halter set back is 'way better!

Yeah, that's one of the features I really liked about it. That's sort of what I was trying to get at when responding to tbenitez about it being set up to do its job but I was having a brain fart and couldn't think how to word it! Thank you :)

oooh okay that's how I thought it would be used. Thankfully Sonny ain't pushy so I've never had a need for any strong halters

Yeah, Hunter isn't pushy either but one of the things that's nice about it is that I have such limited time to work with him I need all the help I can get to teach him things. And obviously this works well for me :)
