Like I said, It just may be a regional thing.
Ooooh a split ear with a throat latch! How about a single ear with a throat latch? Haha I have to got online hunting!!! I think it's a security thing with me....like wearing your jeans with out a belt.....it's the same with me and throat latches! Need one!!! Thanks!

^^^LOL!
On another thread smrobs was talking about a situation where her horse tripped and stripped his split ear headstall trying to regain footing! Eek! A throatlatch might be handy in a situation like that!
My one ear/split ear never had one and never thought a whole lot about it except for snaffle bit horses where it is possible to pull the bit all the way through their mouth!

LOL! Yeah you ask anyone, I'm all about safety! Haha I'm really just an over thinker and am big into prevention!! I'm always thinking things right through and running possible scenarios through my head - hey it's saved a lot of broken bones!!! I used to work with racehorses for a long time, so you see all kinds of stupid accidents! Like stumbling out of the starting gates with a jockey perched on the horses neck and his hands sliding right up the neck and pushing the bridle right over the horses ears....and off it came, even with a throat latch! Needless to say he fell off with a bridle in his hands!
