Pat's Horseman's Halter

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.
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.

I asked a question about halter sizing before purchasing this one because our QH has a large cheek/jowl and regular sizes seldom fit him. I received a nice explanation and response from your staff and ended up ordering the warmblood size. It fits him perfectly and the color is beautiful. Thanks so much!
I recently adopted a Welsh Pony and my horse size Horseman's Halter was way too big. I initially bought the pony size and it was too small. Your customer service people recommended the arab size and it fits perfectly. Thank you!
I love it. It’s so soft from what I was accustomed. So excited to move forward w Parelli.
your service has been excellent, unfortunately i didnt order a purple halter 😊
