Rope Halter Knot
Today I just wanted to give you a quick little tip that can save you a whole lot of trouble with the help of my friend Broadway and my Equine Essentials halter. A lot of people when they tie rope halters tie them all the way through like normal, so you feed the tail end of the halter all the way through. Instead I prefer to tie what I call a "pull back knot" that I learned from a friend here in CO. This is especially useful in horses you know might set back or pull real hard for whatever reason. When you tie the knot, instead of feeding the tail end through, make a loop and feed the loop through. That way, if the horse sets back and that knot locks down, you can always yank that tail end and pull it free, rather than having to pry the knot itself open.
