http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?pid=3402794&id=35667248934&fbid=305..." onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; what's the point of a halter like that? I don't understand it... I suppose more control or something? What's it called?

Re: silly question

Weird. It looks as though they just put a browband on a regular halter to make it look like an in hand halter.

Re: silly question

It's kind of neat going thru the pictures and seeing the different control aids... like this thingy:

and this one that I actually understand and have used haha

Re: silly question

Inigo got led everywhere with a chain through his mouth. I used two lead ropes -- one attached to the chain for control, another just attached to the halter ring -- and I tried to only use the one going through his mouth when I absolutely needed to. I held them threaded through different fingers like when you're using two sets of reins under saddle.

Re: silly question

Pretty standard, albeit posh, halter....why do you find it strange? Just the browband?

Re: silly question

Yes, the browband. Our halters typically do not have them. Do yours?

Re: silly question

Our halters don't come with browbands, but I don't find that first pic weird either. I mean anyone can put a browband on a halter if they really wanted. I assume it's on there to 'dress' up the halter a bit.

Re: silly question

I have just never seen a browband on a halter before. I didn't know if it was for fashion or some other reason :oops:

Re: silly question

Don't be embarrassed, Krickette! I think they're trying to make it look fancier but it's really just a plain leather halter.

Pretty sure it's just for looks.

Re: silly question

It actually doesn't look like a bad idea, I know the youngsters drive me crazy if the halter's a bit loose around the jaw and it keeps slipping down the neck.
