Halters Over Bridles

I was wondering if anyone thinks that it's bad to put the halter back on the horse after you have put the bridle on. You know, to cross tie them back up. Some people said it's bad to because it too much on the horses face. But I do it all the time and was wondering if I shouldn't.

I personally think its a lot of tack to be on the horse's face at once.

But I'm just wondering why you would need to put the halter over their bridle to put him in the cross ties?? Bridles should be the last thing put on when tacking up and the first thing taken off when you are done riding.

If I am going on a BIG ride, I keep a halter on underneath the bridle with a lead snapped to it and wrapped around my saddle horn.

Only sometimes I'll keep the halter under the bridle...usually, I take it off & put the bridle on before I'm about to ride, then after riding I'll take the bridle off, then put the halter back on (to cross-tie). ;)

Well if I have my horse cross tied and he's already got his bridle on all I do is put the halter around his neck and hook it with the clips to the normal place they would go so it's not on his face but it's around his neck and he knows not to go anywhere.

Not a problem at all, in fact that's what you should do if you are planning to leave the horse tied for a while before taking it for a ride. Was in pony club for a few years and would get murdered for not doing it. Very unsafe to leave the halter only attached around the neck.
