    Personally, I think if he's pulling at the bit as it is, I wouldn't even consider putting him in just a rope halter, because one, you don't have control of his mouth, and two he could easily pull through it.

    Personally, I have to say that I agree with this. I'd use a bitless bridle or a hackamore instead of a rope halter, that way you have control still, and don't have to worry about him ignoring the halter.

    I worked with a hackamore. He did the same as he does with the bit if not better. He still throws his head though.

    I agree. It's a very good idea to test, however be very careful. Maybe he'll be better with nose and poll pressure, or he could totally flip (however, I don't know him, so I can't say anything). Experiment is the only way you'll know, though.
    Good luck and tell us all how it goes!

    I think it's a great idea. Are you planning to show at some point? If you are, I would consider still riding with actual tack every once in a while and not completely convert over :)
