Why We Love Rope Halters vs. Flat Halters


The natural horsemanship style of training has become a growing trend, and we are here for it. It relies on effective and efficient communication using rope halters. Here’s what we love about rope halters:

Intentional Design

Rope halters are designed to apply pressure to specific points on a horse’s face to help simplify communication, especially during the training process. They’ve been known to speed up the time it takes for a horse to learn not to put pressure on or lean into a halter.

There are great options, depending on what style of trainer you are.From a really straightforward approach to a more gentle approach, there’s an option for anyone.

Effective Communication

While some trainers might think that a flat halter is a kinder option for a horse’s face, we’ve seen in many cases that they can teach a horse that they’re able to lean in and overpower their rider when there isn’t a natural consequence to misbehavior.


Because rope halters don’t use hardware that can rust or break, they tend to have a longer life than a flat harness.

The Look

We love the low-profile, minimalist look that rope halters offer, as well as the wide variety of colors they can come in.
