Halters on or off

As i said rideing with a halter on is like wearing your underwear on the outside of you pants, that was said by a wonderful man and horse gentler from wyoming Buck Brannaman and i do believe it with all my heart , But i also carry a rope halter and lead rope with me when i ride, i make it a habit of putting one in my saddle bags. or tie one to my saddle. But i do cheat and on 3 of my horses i ride with a neck rope on them. due to the fact that they can be contary at times on the trail. a friend of mine has put a ring on her english saddle to tie a rope halter on to it as well. but i also carry a set of hopples on my saddle with me . i have all my rideing stock broke to hobble so i can get off and rest or take a nap if i want and when i get ready to get aboard my horse is still where i left him. and yes there have been times when a horse has broke loose or an accident has happened and ive needed to catch a runaway and with the halter and rope on my saddle im ready if the need arrises. And the neck rope i use is for the trick rideing i have found my self doing out on the trail and in the front yard. when for some dumb reason a horse decides to leave from under my butt at the most embarraseing times i then need the rope and when asked i tell the little whit lie that im practiceing my trick rideing . I can usually get by with that one at least till i get the sore rubbed off my bottom and figure out what the heck i was doing when the horse left me sitting up in the air with no saddle or chair under me. ( no im not a trick rider ) there are some days its just a good trick to stay in my saddle on some of theses young horses

If I am going out on the trails I leave it on you just never know when it could come in handy. At home or in the ring I take it off.

If I know I'm going to have to do some trail clearing or take a lunch break, I'll ride with a rope halter under my bridle. I liken it to a Mecate but with a bit.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

after her headstall breaking sunday when we tried ponying her across the water I am going to start keeping her halter on while riding.

I would rather ride my horse than my husband; She's funner and doesn't expect anything in return!

OK, then, now I'm worried about your pants.

I ride with my halter off. I'd certainly think that it'd be uncomfortable to have the halter under the bridle. It could also be compared to wearing two pairs of pant. Do you wear two pairs of pants too, Vidaloco?

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?
