In a horseman’s world there are times when it might become necessary to secure a loose horse without a halter in sight. Whether in an emergency, such as fire or natural disaster, or simply to catch a co-competitor’s horse that slips the confines of its stall at a match. It is important to understand that you must first gain control of the horse in a calm and reassuring manner.

Here is a simple and safe way to create a halter in the event of such an emergency.

1.  Start with a rope and create a secure loop at one end. A simple figure 8 knot with a small opening will work fine.  Gain control of the horse first by running the loop end over the horse’s withers and under the neck. 

2.  With control of the horse, feed the middle part of the rope through the figure 8 loop, forming a second loop. 

3.  Move the second loop over the horses nose. 

4.  Snug the two loops creating a halter.

This drill is practiced and used by large animal rescue personnel across the nation who always stress a calm and assuring demeanor while safely gaining control over the equine victim.
