When is it ok to use a webbing halter instead of a rope halter?
There is still a tendency for people to be scared of rope halters because ” in the wrong hands they can hurt the horse”. The truth is a flat webbing halter, or Creek halter ( the only place they do any good is the creek), causes far more damage by causing the horse to lean on pressure.. they end up continually dragging handlers around .. normally end needing a bigger bit because being dull to the halter causes dullness to the bridle.
