Many trainers start young horses with a side pull. This allows the horse to learn directional signals without placing pressure on a sensitive mouth. Horses that are uncomfortable carrying a bit can respond well to a side pull. Horses with dental problems, malformed jaws or other facial injuries may be more comfortable in a side pull than a bit.
Using a side pull on the trail makes it easier for the horse to snack and drink.
This halter is 6mm mountain climbing accessory cord. The rings can be adjusted up to the nose knots or down to the Fiodor knot where my hand is. Brass or silver colored rings are available. Thicker or thinner, stiffer or softer rope also available. I will work with you to get the correct dimensions so the halter will fit snuggly.
