I can tell you - they are thin, strong, light, and soft. I've seen the type that you describe and I'm not keen on the stiffer, thicker ones myself.

I agree-I really like my PP halter. I would like more colors-it can get pretty confusing when we all have them at the barn.....

CA halter is much stiffer, which I did not like at all, and I find the cheaper ones are too. TLO-Looks like we agree! LOL

Really? My Parelli halter is like woven silk - as SpiritHorse had said on a different post "if you throw it to the ground and it still looks like a halter, it's crap." While I don't necessarily AGREE, I understand what she meant. I don't think you could possibly get softer material then the Parelli halter, and it's MUCH more accommodating to my princess Arab's delicate face - there's a fluidity to her movements in it, where she was prone to head tossing due to the roughness and big knots of a cheap rope halter.

Also, due to the "one size fits all", the cheap halters look horrendous on a small headed horse. There's like an extra foot of stiff rope sticking out from her head that I have to wind down the throat latch part to make it look less silly.

However, I love the cheap halters for my Paint filly and she does fantastic in them, so I certainly won't be pitching out another forkful of cash for a Parelli halter for her. And Parelli halters don't come in lime green.

I love my CC halters and hated the CA one I worked with ONCE!! Haven't touched a PP one in years like 15 years or so

Interesting... As I said I got CA's one 4 years back or so, used it for may be a month (I think it was even less than that), it sits in my shed since then. It's thin and light - that for sure, but horribly stiff. Actually I'm thinking if I have to sell it now as I don't use it at all. I in facet forgot about it completely - the whole conversation reminded me about it.

I was actually looking at CA's kits on eBay because they were so much cheaper then Parelli. I'm so glad I found my friend who got me a Parelli kit for the same price, I would have been PO'ed if I got another stiff halter! I thought their stuff was identical and liked the multi-colored sticks he had.

You could try washing the halter in the washer-perhaps that would soften it a bit. I wash all my PP stuff and it comes out like new! I can't stand when my white ropes get dirty, so wash them pretty regularly.
