Our best selling style! The Classic is a direct combination of a nylon halter and a rope halter, with a sliding ring for lungeing and noseband knots for control. Besides giving you a better response than any other halter, it also eliminates head twisting, knot tying hassles and stripped buckle holes while being safe for trailering, crosstying and even riding. Not just a training halter, the Hybrid replaces any day-to-day halter you are currently using and is more comfortable and easier to understand for your horse. It is not just for naughty horses, or young horses or horses in training - it is for any horse that you feel deserves better communication with you and a more comfortable way to go about daily life in his most lived in piece of tack.

- Solid brass hardware - never-rust guarantee

Add A Matching Lead Rope...
Our super strong ropes are hand spliced from rope that has been specially engineered for equine applications. This high grade rope is UV, salt and water resistant. It features extraordinary tensile strength thanks to its spliced construction and is woven to retain its original length with age and use. Finished with an easy open, one-hand trigger bull snap that is pull tested to 2,100 lbs. Custom spun and hand spliced to our exacting specifications.
What makes the HYBRID different from a normal rope halter or normal web halter?
In 2013, we patented the Hybrid Halter® design and created a completely new and unmatched category in the most lived in piece of tack your horse will ever wear - his halter. In the decade since, many have tried to copy or pickup elements of the design, but the simple truth is this: nothing else works as effectively, for the horse's benefit as our original patented design or world leading craftsmanship of the Horse Education Company Hybrid Halter®.
It has made its way to every major equine competition, including the Olympics, Kentucky Three Day Event, Badminton Three Day Event, the AQHA World Show and the National Finals Rodeo.
The Hybrid has all the SAFETY, 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 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 nylon halter can match. No matter what kind of leading, training, groundwork or handling you're doing with your horse, the Hybrid will improve your communication.
