The disadvantage is you don't have control of the
horse's head...say when you're vetting him in before a
ride.  However, Charlie knows his job and helps the
vet by opening his mouth.  I don't require a halter on
him so don't use one.  

The advantage is you don't have to mess with a halter
when bridling.  Charlie is rather special so I
wouldn't recommend a collar unless your horse was
super nice to you when you're on the ground.  However,
if you do have a guy you can trust, a collar is
nice...even if you only use it at vet checks when you
don't want to take the headstall off.
