Rope halter vs. Flat halter for training.
I am new to the horse world. I've had my 5yr old QH for 6 months we are doing good together. We had our first lesson with the trainer and she was just crazy about getting the flat halter off and using her (name brand) rope halter. Dixie is young but very compliant under saddle and walks and is easliy managed in the stall. She will move when ask and for the exemption of getting to close sometimes (my fault I keep forgetting she isn't a dog) is a very good horse and will get off me if I just put my hand up and tell her to get back. I am still working on MY ground work but do not see where the type of halter really matters with a broke, pretty settled horse. Any thoughts. D
