“I have never felt a light headed, responsive headed horse that
normally wears a webbing halter.”
Webbing halters cause ignorant headed horses and they are Sad
WEBBING HALTERS traditionally and almost always come
English Way – inviting the Fight You can’t win!
This almost always insures ‘Ignorant Headed Horses of
unhappiness and confusion’
THE ROPE HALTERS
which almost always is accompanied with Light Horses
of happiness and direction.
THE UNHAPPY HORSE
THE HAPPY HORSE
day of my working life, I take hold and lead, horses that arrive for
breaking or re-education. Still, 15 years after I introduced rope halters
to the Saddlery Shops of Adelaide, I meet only about 30% of horses that
Of those 70% of
horses that wear webbing halters, 100% of them are heavy and ignorant in
the head. I have never met one that is truly light. The reasons:
who use webbing halters have rarely heard about Natural
who use webbing halters rarely own a rope halter.
who use webbing halters rarely know how to ask for lightness in a
horse on the ground.
who use webbing halters almost always have been taught to lead
horses ‘Pony Club Style’ or as I call it, “by the beard”, thus
causing the ignorant horse and a constant fight which the handler
halters are too wide, too comfortable, too stretchy, don’t put
pressure on pressure points and never cause a horse to give to
pressure if asked.
halters cause horses to resist them, they cause fights of
you tie a horse up in one and the horse pulls back, the halter
will break, training the horse to not tie up and to become more
halter people are normally, ‘twine people’. Twine horses are
ignorant to start with.
who use webbing halters almost always have a 6 feet long cotton
lead rope which makes up the package.
lead ropes are 6 feet too short.
lead ropes are too light, fluffy, elastic, do not send signals
down to a halter and break when a horse sneezes.
lead ropes cannot be swung through the air, they cannot send
signals, they do not allow horses to get out of your space.
Ignorant headed horses have ignorant minds. Ignorant minded horses have an
attitude. Ignorant attitude can diminish the quality of the mouth.
Given that webbing, leather and plastic halters promote the learning of
ignorance in the horse, it is the root cause for the commencement of most
of the normal vices that end with the ‘problem horse’ and the failed
owner, many of whom leave the Horse Industry. What you get on the ground
so you inherrit under saddle. It comes with attitude and a heavy brain
equals an ignorant horse.
you have not been educated on the use and dangers of ‘Rope Halters’ or
‘Horseman’s Halters’, read the relevant articles on this site. Tying up of
horses, halter breaking, etc.
Monty Robert’s ‘Dually Halter’ can be dangerous and acts like a ‘War
Bridle’ Monty Robert’s use of this halter caused a horse to rear
completely over backwards in the Adelaide Show. I recommend that no
amateur uses one. Sure it lightens them up but without serious experience,
am listening….are You??
