There are times when you need a halter immediately. While these lead rope halters are not long term substitutes for the real thing, knowing how to make a serviceable halter from a rope in a pinch can be very valuable.
I always carry a spare halter in my trailer. I haven’t had to use mine for awhile but last fall I did loan it to a friend whose horse broke her halter while tied to a trailer. And we’ve all come across situations where a halter would really help move a horse from point a to point b (at least at our barn, horses are turned out without halters since we believe it’s safer).
The videos below show two different techniques: one uses a rope without a snap; the other uses a conventional lead rope.
