[RC] Bridling a horse... - steve shaw

Well, I have been getting into a bad habit over all the years. Some say
I'm lazy, others say I'm  just a ride and tier....
I don't take off the halter when I bridle a horse. I always ride with
the halter on. Two reasons. One: in ride and tie I want to use the
halter to tie him to a tree (him because I really don't want to own any
more mares except Clown..) as to use just the bridle and he gets into
trouble could really hurt him. Two: even though it is not "correct" I
have always thought it safer not having a horse the option of breaking
away. Maybe that is because I started off with Rushcreek horses that
were rank and new.
Any ways, that is what I do, simply put the bridle over the halter,
leave it on all the time that I am working him and save time twice, not
having to do the exchange in putting on, then taking off said bridle.
