"Halter" with no nose band?
Hello Horse Lovers!
There are a couple of horses at the stable where I board that wear a kind of "halter" 24/7 and I don't know what it is or what it's used for.
The "halter" only goes behind the ears/on the poll (or in one case it sits around the ears) and under the back of the cheek where the head meets the throat (is there a name for that area?). There is nothing dangling/hanging from this piece of tack.
Can anyone tell me what this piece of tack is and why a horse would wear it? Thank you so much!
