Re: [RC] halters around neck - Jonni Jewell

I think most of us have done it this way forever. But I have to admit, I
have had those horses that think to much (Arabs of course) , and have tried
to do a quick escape right as the halter lowers and clears the nose, before
I can get the crown rebuckled. The tension that horses and riders are
feeling during the morning of a ride can add to "mistakes" happening. I
believe the Europeans have used buckle nose halters (or head collars as they
call them) for years. Just offering an option for those interested. They are
also great to use for clipping the face etc. (not that any of us would go to
such trouble with our trail horses. LOL)


Heck, I was always just taught to unbuckle the halter and slip it off the
nose and then immediately rebuckle it so that it serves as its own "horse
collar."  That was so ingrained in me as a kid that I would have to have a
fight with myself to take the halter clear off prior to bridling anyway.
