When I was a little kid, I remember using our old cotton lead rope this way. I was so proud of myself-I was sure I had just learned to tie a rope halter- funny how things work out!

Quick Catch Halter Instructions-
We use these when we bring our horses in from the fields at night. Quick and easy to put on and take off. This rope is very strong- tested to 2,300 pound, yet thin enough to have plenty of 'bite'.
Shown below is how to put on a quick catch halter. Make sure it's nice and snug- sitting just below the cheek bones. To take off your quick catch halter, simply slip the nose piece off the nose, and pull the lead. The whole halter will come off the horse.
Slip spliced eye over poll
Pull a new loop through the spliced eye
Put new loop up over the nose, tighten right below the cheek bone.
We haven't had any problems with the nose piece loosening on it's own. We're bringing four horses in at night, and turning them out in the morning. But hypothetically, if the noseband loosened enough, to fall off the nose, you could potentially have a loose horse.
You can tie a quick half hitch to keep that from happening-
Regular quick catch knot
Bring tail up between horse and rope
Bring tail down behind rope & thru the loop it makes
Finished half hitch knot
