Leaving halter on when riding!?

Do you guys put your bridle on over your halter? I have noticed people do? What are the benefits/negatives of that ?

If I'm on a trail ride, or a rodeo where I'm on and off all day, or working cows.. I keep a rope halter on underneath with the lead tied off the saddle horn. I can tie my horse when I need to.

The only time I've ever done that was out on the trail so I can let the horses graze when I get off to eat or something.

Don't like nylon. And only use leather for my halter horses at shows.

I love trail bridles. They are inexpensive and offer all the benefits of riding with a halter on without all the extra bulk. Heres my buddy Scooter in his halter/bridle-trail bridle.

I leave the halter on with a lead rope attached if it has a purpose. For example if I'll be out on the trail for hours and might want to get off the horseback and walk for a while to stretch my legs, or sometimes I cross areas where it's too dangerous to be mounted, boggy areas or scree areas, then I want to get off and lead the horse by a leadrope and not by the reins. If I loose my balance walking in such areas I might jerk the horses mouth if leading by the reins and I don't want to cause the horse pain. It's also handy to be able to tie the horse safely if you let him wear a halter and a lead rope.

I do anytime I'm not in an enclosed space. What if something happened to my bridle? Its much easier in an emergency situation to have some sort of backup. I use an english bridle with no noseband and I usually run the throatlach through the cheekrings on the halter for extra security. On my english saddle, I tie the leadrope with a quick release to the buck strap that I made for my baby cousins.
