Makes it easy to get the same response you expect in the bridle under saddle, while on the ground without a bit in your horse’s mouth.
As seen in Quarter Horse News, Stable Management and Tack N' Togs...
WHY do you need a PATENTED HYBRID Halter?
- Horse can’t push on you like they can in a web halter
- Horse can't push through it with their nose like they can in a rope halter
- ELIMINATES the need for a chain
- Cross tie in it & personalize it like a web halter
- The 180 degree slide ring action discourages your horse from torqueing his head while lunging
- You will always have control of your horse’s nose
- Take it on and off like a bridle thanks to the throatlatch snap, no buckling or knots
- Saves hours a day over multiple horses just in on/off time alone!
- Unlike a rope halter, the knots won't tighten in a pullback situation
- Can be ridden in and will have a sidepull type action
- The application of pressure, its angle and its release translates directly to the bridle with no chance for bad habits to develop on the ground
HANDMADE QUALITY: A HORSE TRAINING TOOL
Each HYBRID is handmade, by two separate set of artisans. The rope splicing and knot work alone takes 45 minutes and great care is taken to make every HYBRID a durable piece of tack and training equipment.
YES, you can go and pay less, much, much less for a cheap farm store halter or a dime a dozen rope clinician halter, BUT you will not have the features, the horse training functionality and the handcrafted quality of the Patented HYBRIDHalter. Like the investment in a bridle, this is a piece of tack that will be in your tack room for years to come. It will help encourage lightness in your horse, discourage him from traveling around with his head tilted while lunging, give you better control on the ground and mimic the action of a sidepull thanks to its 180 degree slide ring. Shouldn’t your horse have good habits everywhere he goes, not just under saddle?
What it is:
The Horse Education Hybrid Halter is a direct combination of the traditional Web/Flat Halter and the traditional Rope halter, with the addition of a signature slide ring construction to allow for the precise application of pressure and encouragement of lightness.
Why its different from; 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.
What problems does it solve:
The Hybrid solves the lack of handiness and physically awkward dispersal of pressure when a signal is given to the horse because of the rope halter's simple construction and operation, which causes it to move and shift, sometimes out of the range of effectiveness. Also, the Hybrid Halter is a much better training and controlling tool than the traditional web/flat halter because of the thin material around the nose, jowl and noseband knots, which discourages the horse from leaning on it, combined with the accuracy of signal relay because of the sliding ring under the chin. The webbing side construction allows for personalization with a horse name or barn name that is not possible with a rope halter, plus a precision of fit that a rope halter just can't provide.
Its Convenience Is Unbeatable
Use one halter for training, trailering, farrier work, leading in and out of the stall... you name it! You can cross tie in the Hybrid, you can do ground training in it. You can take it on and off like a bridle without undoing any knots or buckling any buckles simply by undoing the throat latch snap and sliding it over your horse's ears like you would any bridle. Over multiple horses, it can be not only an effective training tool, but an effective time saver as well!
Handcrafted by The Best Artisans
Each Hybrid is handcrafted by the best artisans in the industry, we sought out the best web halter experts and the best rope artisans to assemble the Hybrid. Each halter is contructed in two-stages, by experts in web halter construction and then by experts in rope tying and knotting, who add the precisely placed noseband knots and beautiful rosebud rope attachments to the hardware. All hardware is solid brass.
Overview of its construction:
The cheek pieces through the crown piece is consistent to the traditional web halter. The nose/chin piece, jowl piece and connection piece are made of either yacht rope, like the traditional rope halter, or the lariat rope option. There is a sliding ring under the chin where the lead rope is attached. The yacht rope Hybrid Halter has nose knots similar to the rope halter. The innovation of this halter is combining the best construction and control features of both the web/flat and rope halters, hence the name "Hybrid."
The Average Horse size will fit most adult Quarter Horses, Paints and Thoroughbreds.
