Id say it depends on the horse and the situation. If theres a slim chance of a major spook id say it fine for a little while, but if I was in a busy area with a spooky horse id say its a good way to break tack. Now on a mule, they seem not to do anything that's going to hurt them and they arent know to be pullers, but even then I've seen a mule break a halter trying to graze off a highline. I think in that situstion youd have to worry more about breaking your tack than your horse.
