    Just about the only time we use a web halter is in the trailer.

    I have done in the past , but concidering I hardly ever use my halters they usually get left behind. If im riding I use the bridle to catch my horses so don't have a later with me any way. And besides that I ride bitless, so no problems wiht bits if I let them have a munch , lol

    I bought a bitless bridle for that very reason. I really need to give it another go.

    Btw, except for trail riding and trimmings, we leave the halters off. Our mares will almost put the halters on themselves when you need them and I hate the 'halter nose' look.

    Like most of you I've always left the halter on for longer rides or trail rides. At home I will slip if off.

    I have only gone out once for day long trail ride to the mountains and I don't recall I had a halter on. Would I use one next time? I think I would put on one and keep it underneath his bridle.

    I always ride with the halter under the bridle, lead rope attached to the halter and looped up to and slip tied to the saddle horn. I like to be able to controll Ming with a lead rope, rather than the reins. As it's been said, in case of an emergency, it's nice to have the ability to lead/tie/ or use for another horse, if necessary. It doesn't add that much weight, considering how nice it is to have.
    When we take a break, I like to be able to pull off the bridle and let her graze - it she's behaved up to that point.

    This weekend when I went on a trail, I didn't have the halter on.

    But I'm thinking it would be a good thing to have, just in case something happens.

    Where could I put the lead rope if I'm riding English?

    I use usual nylon halter. However the only reason I do it I can't let them go free when I put bridle on. I do it in ring, but still kinda concerned to do in open field.
