The point is IMO
rope halter is not a good thing to use. I had a bad experience with it, so it's enough for me. And I just want to repeat that rope halter DOES burn the horse's skin whether people agree on that or not. May be in ring with really strong headed horse yes to use one, but not on daily basis. Plus I don't really see the point of using it if the horse is behaving and leads well.
BTW, I NEVER consider the dangerous situation to be the horse's fault. They are not people and when they panic - they panic (well, people do too and create chaos killing others).
