Okay, well you put one end of the rope through the halter, so that both ends are hanging, then put the the end of the lead through the little loop and pull so that it is knotted onto the rope halter. In the end you should have this:

Sounds like she wants to ride the horse in the halter. In a regular halter people usually attache to the side...?

Slip the lead through the same hole, or on one of the connecting ropes on the chin, and tie a quick release, or your choice in knot. There's your reins. =)
