On this halter you attach the lead rope to a special rope connector that can move from side to side, so when you pull sideways on the lead rope only the rope connector moves while the rest of the halter stays practically still instead of slipping and turning like regular rope halters tend to do. That way you get a rope halter that gives the horse clearer signals, causes less rubbing and the cheekpieces will not end up in the horse's eyes as easily.
I have personally tested and developed this rope halter design with the help of my own horse and I only use this type of rope halter since I think it works so much better than a standard rope halter. I therefore strongly recommend this halter as an alternative to standard rope halters for you who seek a clearer communication with your horse and want to spare your horse from unnecessary uncomfort.
The end that you tie the rope halter with is whipped with thin twine to keep the two ropes together. If you want a completely solid-colored halter you can choose the same color for the whipping as the halter or you can choose a different color for a nice contrast. The ring knot on the rope connector will have the same color as the tie end whipping.A tip:
If you want several halters in the same color for more than one horse you can choose different colors for the whipping and you will easily be able to tell which halter belongs to which horse.You can add extra nose knots if you want a rope halter that gives your horse extra clear signals and you can also add sidepull attachments if you want to be able to attach reins on the sides of your horse's head. You can then choose between sidepull rings made of metall (like this halter has) or sidepull loops tied with the same rope as the rest of the halter (as on this halter).
The rope connector is removable and can be changed to another one if you would like. You can find separate rope connectors here
