Basic Natural Horsemanship Rope Halter
This is a great basic halter!
This halter is hand-tied from your choice of soft 1/4″ double braided polyester yacht rope or firm 1/4″ polyester halter cord. All knots are properly tied using the double overhand knot and the Fiador knot. Rope halters are a popular training aid. Some people feel that a rope halter provides clearer communication with the horse compared to a leather or web halter, so they learn to give to pressure much faster.
If you need some help tying a rope halter, I’ve created a step-by-step video course to walk you through the process. You can learn more about that here.

Good Halter The custom halter fits like a glove and is made of good quality materials. I don’t particularly care for the knot on the end of the collar, but the horse doesn’t care.
