My thoughts are that, when trained,a horse shouldnt really need any tack...and mine don't.However,it always depends on the situation.For example,even though my horses will turn and burn with the best,in the game of Polo,its all about safety,so you must use certain tack.Or if you are at a boarding stable or something,you need to keep horses on a halter etc...

Sadly, few horses are trained correctly, or at some point were wrecked by inexperienced riders.

Casey,you are so right.Sadly enough.

You might be surprised at how many 5,6 and 7 year old horses I have to completely rebreak and train because of this.

Yep I ride bitless. In my opinion, I think any horse would prefer this to metal in it's mouth.

My horse has always been ridden in a rope halter and I ride him in a one too, mostly. I have tried a sidepull and he did quite good in it, and he has been introduced to bit, but I have no intentions to use something that is not bitless. He is good without a bit and I ride him bridleless quite often, too.

I can throw a rope halter on my horses and ride them no problem. I enjoy it as much as they do. But my horses are also trained well that I could even go tackless if I wanted to. They respond to my seat not my hands. I have taught many a students in my time to ride bareback and hands free.
Sometimes its just easier for me to hop on SAM and ride him back to the gate, when he is out in the fields. I get him mares will follow ( when mares were out with him). Now I jump up on ROSE and the girls follow, since Rose is lead mare.

I found a very cute pink rope halter that we use sometimes for a quick bareback ride around the farm. It is made from a softer material than the typical rope halter.

I do. My mare is 6, I started her in a rope halter and hardly ever ride our snaffle. She is good in both but generally seems happier in a halter. I also ride in it because I can then tie her on the trails and let her eat, especially when we are on long rides.

rope halter/side pull

I do ride my horse in a rope halter, just in the arena. I wouldn't do it on the trail though and I have to use a snaffle riding on cows. I just got this great "side pull", which is actually just a rope halter with rings for the reins and a wrapped nose band, which makes it kinda look like a hackamore. I bought it online from: SunsetHalters.com ~ (360) 864-HORS Call them if you want the wrapped nose band. They are very helpful!
