halter vs. neck collar for a highline?
Hi everyone, I have a new trail horse he is 17.1 which means his head when up and looking is taller than a 7' highline. Saturday we had an "innciedent" while practicing and he got caught with his tie line wrapped around his neck and nearly strangled himself. Don't worry he didn't and was fine, but it was scarry for him and I. So I was wondering if anyone has experience with a neck collar/rope/strap whatever you want to call it. Does it slip better around his neck so he can't get his tie line wrapped around his neck? He was tied with a 26" crosstie (bull snap on the halter and panic snap on the high line). Should my crosstie be even shorter?
