Pat's Horseman's Halter - Alternate Colors

The Parelli Horseman's Halter is a core tool of the program, and it is hand-tied using smooth yachting braid with simple knots that strategically balance on the horse's head. Its lightness means that it is easy for your horse to carry around, but thin enough that the horse can feel the communication. 

"It's light when he's right, strong when he's wrong." Pat Parelli
  • 1/4 inch yachting braid, simple knots under the chin and on sides, non-fray ends, loop attachment.
  • The 100% polyester rope used at Parelli has been specifically engineered with horsemanship use in mind. Parelli rope is dirt, sweat, mildew, rot and UV resistant. This means that your rope will stay truer to its original form longer, without fading, stretching, popping or elongating. The rope you usually see used for halters and leads is typically nylon yachting rope and was never designed to withstand the unique challenges an equine application presents. Nylon rope stretches, can become stiff with use, increases in size over time and absorbs unwanted moisture.
  • No metal, even to finish the halter; the ends are melted.
  • Leather poppers on each product with Parelli stamp. Designed so when you drop them on the ground they no longer look like a halter, they collapse into a pile of rope. What makes this unique and functional is that because our halter folds upon itself when dropped it prevents a horse from catching a foot in it or otherwise becoming tangled.
  • Many of our customers have owned their halters for 20 years or more without any breakage or dry rot.

    Pat perfected the halter design and used to tie them himself on the way to clinics (someone else was driving of course!). Today Parelli halters are still hand-tied using smooth yachting braid with simple knots that strategically balance on the horse's head. We don't use 'pressure knots' as they cause unnecessary discomfort. The loop for attaching lines hangs below the jaw and acts as a hinge. A heavy or thick halter results in dead weight on the face, which causes the horse to be dull to pressure and can push on nerves. This halter is tied with horse's facial structure in mind and is the best fit on the market. This halter is for everyday use as well as teaching your horse to yield instead of lean or push on it.

    Do not leave the halter on the horse if it is loose or turned out to pasture; it could get the halter caught on something.

    Thin to win - your horse will not be as inclined to lean on this halter so it will help you win the Porcupine Game and earn your horse's respect.

    Do not try to adjust the knots.

    Only attach snaps, reins, leads, and ties to the loop below the fiador knot.

    Our halters are designed to protect your horse from any additional vice-like pressure, that can cause your horse undue suffering, like some other halters that are currently being sold.

    Pat Parelli says, "One size fits all unless your horse is too big or too small!"
    Regular halters fit 90% of all the horses he's ever seen.

    Rope halter

    Very nice. Soft but a bit slippery. The knot slips a lot.

    Runs Small?

    I love the craftsmanship. Delivery was timely.
    However, I ordered the size for Arabian because my horse is a purebred Arab & the
    “Standard” sizes I have been using (another brand) we’re a little too large. When I saw a designated Arab size on sale I jumped on it. Sadly, it is too small- primarily it is too short nose to jaw?
