umm, no, i think that's right for a traditional halter, that's how i've always seen them anyway. the leverage when the horse pulls means you can control it. mustn't tie them up in them though, for obvious reasons.

Is it just an old type rope halter, then that is how they used to be and you just fitted it on any size horse adjusted it and took the rope round the loop and back through itself to fix in place.Then it can't tighten and you can tie up

When i need to make one out of a leadrope I do it with the rope coming from under the jaw too, not over like in the pic but then I just make it up as I go along. (if i need to bring another horse in and only have one headcollar and leadrope- this rarely happens)

I thought that too. If that is correct it means I've been putting them on the wrong way up for years then

Ah well, always worked for me.

Denwyn will know.

This one comes from under the chin, you wouldn't show with one on upside down surely!

Soooooooo, who is going to break the news to Robinsons then?

If someone put it on as shown in their advertising picture, then the horse ran off and hurt someone, could they blame the catalogue company for not showing how to use it properly? What a mine field! I bet they have a disclaimer in those catalogues somewhere.

Law - Glad some one else does it under the jaw.

I use/used one on my yearling when halter breaking him and for showing being a New Forest. I alway use a panic release clip lead rope and leather headcollar when tying him up mind!

I agree with you - I would have put it on like this halter picture

Not sure if it is right or not, but it is how I have always done it and find it effective as you can release pressure quickly when the horse stops pulling, misbehaving etc.

I would put it as the second picture that was posted the Robinson's one looks upsidedown to me. I show a Welsh A in hand and use the second way where the lead comes from under the chin.
