Do not fool yourself. Horses can get caught on anything. Heck, they can get their own hoof stuck in their halter.

I have always been taught not to turn horses out with halters since I was a child for the reasons that have already been stated in the thread.

I am paranoid to even turn out with a break-away. Won't even stall with a halter on. This is not a stab at you or your barn, please don't take it as such, but at all the lesson barns I have been at, everyone was pretty much like, if the kid is too small to reach to put the halter on, a staff member should be going with them anyhow. So they were never left on.

Besides...I'm a halter junkie and I don't want my pretty, bright halters getting torn up! Haha!

Haha, no offense taken from anyone, don't worry. Thanks for sharing. I agree that if a kid can't catch a horse on their own, someone should be helping them, but we do have a few horses who realize when someone's coming towards them with a halter, it means work, and will run away. :/
