Downunder Horsemanship
Rope Halter and Lead

Manufacturer: Downunder Horsemanship
Model: Rope Halter and Lead
Category: Halters/Ropes/Leads

Purchase: We bought this halter on Clinton Anderson's website for $59.99 plus shipping. We have other halters-web and rope. This halter has strategically placed KNOTS the other halters lack. It is a much better tool for teaching than any other halter design I've seen. Including other rope halters.

Likes: I love those knots. I have a pushy, disrespectful horse, but he really responds when I put the pressure on. But it also releases quickly and completely when he gives. Black and White- wrong and right. When he behaves, it is like he is wearing nothing at all. I like the longer lead rope 14 feet vs 12 feet. I like to put a lot of distance between me and a rearing horse!! On, and it's BLACK, so it doesn't show the dirt.

Dislikes: The quick release snap is unusual and takes a bit of practice to use, but it is heavy duty! It hangs down below the horse's jaw and transmitts the rope's energy effectively.

Quality: This halter has a stiff inner core which makes it uncomfortable for the horse to "lean" on, four knots along the noseband-pressure points. The lead rope is made of high quality yachting rope-popper end. Soft to the touch and strong. Quick release snap.

Summary: This poor halter and rope has taken quite a bit of abuse and still looks great. The rope had been dragged all over the pasture, been chewed on, stepped on, been used in a tug of war and as a jump rope. It has made a SIGNIFICANT difference in training my horse. Every second you spend with your horse is a training moment. Using the proper equipment gets the response you are looking for.
