Professional's Choice Clinician Halter
An amazing halter for teaching ground manners. Identical to the Clinton Anderson halter that costs twice as much. I have used this halter on my mare for three years and its still in great condition. I just bought a second one for a new horse. This halter has become a staple in my training.

Just what I needed
I started doing some basic ground work with my horse and needed something that he would respect a little more. The knots on the noseband did the trick. Its seems fine, I just thought it was a little pricey for what it is (it didnt seem as "rigid" as I had expected). The 15ft lead is perfect!

As far as fit - I'm not sure why so many have said these halters run small, my appendix has a big roman nose and wears a horse size in everything and he had more than enough room with this halter. You are supposed to have it a little more fitted and not hanging way off their head, but I still have more than enough room to tie it looser. For usefulness - I found this works better than a chain over the nose to get my stall rest/rehab horse to pay attention to me. The first time a trainer used a rope halter in my horse it was a wake up call even after having used a chain. I'm not a NH expert by any means, but I understand from someone else who is that the lead rope quality is very nice.

Great Training Tool
My young Warmblood can be quite the handful and this halter has really helped with ground work. The lead line is a great length and the halter fits his big head just right!

Great for sensitive but pushy horses!
This halter fits my small TB gelding perfectly. It's very adjustable so I've used it on bigger horses with no issues either. My horse doesn't like when you use a chain over his nose but occasionally needs a reminder that I'm still attached to the end of the rope! This halter works out perfectly in times like that. The two extra knots on the nose give it a little more "oopmh" than a normal halter but does it without upsetting my horse. The lead rope is really long with a "popper" on the end that comes in handy when you're doing groundwork. I'd prefer if the lead was a bit shorter for just regular leading but it's soft and is easy to carry. I've had it for over a year now and it's holding up great. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a more responsive horse when leading or someone who's horse does not appreciate a chain over their nose, like mine.

This rope halter is good quality and the lead is nice and long but the halter size is small. It hardly fits my 15hh QH. He does have a nice jowly QH head but not overly large and this does not fit at all. I can hardly get it tied. It's got to be a pony size. I'll use the lead and give the halter to someone who has a tiny little horse.
