$29.99 USD

Control nose in an economy halter

This is the economy nylon version of HYBRID Halter® line. It features halter nose knots only - no rope undercarriage.

Nameplates: Visit our site Plates by Horse Education Company to design nameplates to match your halter. These can be easily installed at home using a tack punch and a screw driver.


If you're interested in even more control and better construction, look at the Classic Nylon Halter


The patented HYBRID Halter® combines the effectiveness of a rope horse halter with the safety of a webbing horse halter, making it the perfect solution for any horse owner. Nylon halter with rolled nylon throat and chin, finished with a rope nose with noseband pressure knots. Universal design will not torque the horse’s sensitive head and poll region or twist into the animal’s eyes. Lunging and groundwork are made easier with a sliding ring under the chin that allows the snap of your rope to slide a full 180 degrees so there’s no need to change sides of the halter when changing direction of travel. The HYBRID Halter’s unique design has decreased surface area, making it harder for horse to push, pull or drag handler around. Suitable for cross tying, trailering, groundwork training, and everyday use.

Noseband colors: Noseband colors will vary  - black always has black, blue will have tan or black, red will have red or tan and purple will have purple or tan. Sorry, but we are unable to accommodate noseband color preference.

  • Knotted Control Noseband 
  • Brass Plated Hardware
  • Superior Training Result to either rope or nylon web halter
  • Throat snap for easy on-off
Differences Between the "Lite" Style and Classic HYBRID Horse Halter:
  • The "Lite" style is built for a season or two of use as you may find the hardware will corrode if left in the elements. The Classic is built to last for 5+ years as it has the benefit of more UV coated materials AND non-rust solid brass or stainless steel hardware.
  • "Lite" has Brass Plated Hardware (Classic has solid brass hardware throughout)
  • Undercarriage of halter is made of rolled webbing (Classic features UV protection coated yachting rope for best control)
  • Four colors, three sizes (expanded selection of sizes, colors and styles in Classic version)
  • Price: The Classic style is $70. The economy "lite" version of the halter will outperform either a webbing or rope halter, the Classic version will give you even more control and better construction!

What makes the HYBRID different from a normal rope halter or normal web halter?

The Hybrid has all the convenience, personalization options, and functionality of a traditional web/flat halter. It features the stability of the buckles, rings and snap of a flat halter, combined with the training ability and control of the rope halter, plus the added benefit of the sliding ring under the chin for clarity of signal. The Hybrid Halter is the ultimate functional and training halter in one convenient design! You can cross tie in it, it won't tighten if a horse pulls back in it, it won't torque a horse's head to the side like a rope halter, so is both more comfortable for your horse and more effective for training because it mimics the application of pressure he will later experience with a bit. Your horse will find it difficult to lean on, so it can deliver a precision of cue that neither a rope, nor web halter can match and makes you and your horse's job easier. If you follow natural horsemanship, or do groundwork with your horse, you will see a remarkable training difference with this halter. If you lunge your horses, you won't have a need to to switch the rope of your lunge line based on your horse's direction of travel.
