    My yearling responds better the the rope halter than a stud chain. Also like the fact that the rope halters are lighter. That being said, I use both.

    I use both. I use a nylon web halter on Dumas because he doesn't need the pressure points of the rope halter and on Twister I prefer to use the rope halter because he doesn't always remember his manners. I have noticed that Twister acts differently in the rope halter. He is more respectful and I don't have to "discipline" him...he does it to himself and I just keep a steady hand.

    I know that an $8 rope halter is just as good and a $40 rope halter. I wouldn't pay for an expensive one. But that's just my opinion.

    Thanks again everyone. Yay my rope halter was just a cheapy. I think it was 5.99 on sale at Chicks! Yip Yip! I don't ever use my halters under bridles.

    I'm excited to try it on Legend & my point really of getting one was just because I liked the "look" of them & was intersted in trying something new. Legend thankfully is usually "pretty darn" respectful on the ground.

    I prefer a rope halter for training or doing any work on the horses. I like a web halter for trailering, because in an emergency the buckle would be easier to undo than the rope. Plus there is no need for the nose/poll pressure when their just riding in the trailer.

    I am going to switch to a web/leather safety halter for trail riding though. I haven't decided on one yet I read an article by Julie Goodnight about using rope halters under bridles. She said they put unnessesary pressure on the nose and confuse cues. Made sense to me

    Hmm I prefer the rope halters I like the apperence of them and the reaction you get from them I'm not knocking the other halters I like them too but I'd rather have a rope halter... I usually Keep a nylon and rope halter...

    I only use rope halters.... they offer the right about of pressure on the poll for training purposes.. I also have very young horses so the pressure system comes in handy!

    Put the rope halter on Legend tonight! She looks beautiful! But.... I forgot to take a pictures b/f I let her back out into the pasture! LOL. Whoops. Maybe next time.

    She seemed to respond well to the halter & I loved the light-ness of the halter & how easy it was on her ~ specially w/ her hair rubbing off issues!

    That's nice looking, I prefer the knotts over the nose - works better for pressure.
