Sierra Horse Halter
The Sierra Horse Halter is a revolutionary way to communicate with your horse. When engaged, the halter puts pressure on the bridge of the horses nose and the crest of the neck. At the same time, the pressure is completely relieved at the poll behind the ears. Teach your horse to lead respectfully, stand quietly on a single tie or cross tie, and accelerate training for head carriage and head and neck control. The Sierra Horse Halter can be used like any other halter and for the same purposes, but it gives you more. A small person can have much more power over a 1000 pound horse because of more control over where that horse puts his nose. Horses that pull back when tied or when they feel pressure on the poll, will stop this after only a few uses. Horses that pull their owners around when leading will stop and walk respectfully along side. Even those horses that yank you around for a bite of grass will stop. It is not because they are hurt in any way. The halter simply limits the movement as far as where the horse can put the nose. It is an amazing product that will change the way you look at halters. No knots to put pressure on sensitive areas. Two points of contact instead of the traditional poll area. Vertical head carriage comes naturally when using the halter. Pushy stallions are greatly controlled with this halter. When a horse pulls back and puts pressure on themselves the halter pulls the nose back towards the chest. This in no way hurts the horse and it does not limit air supply. It is more like a wrestlers block. The Sierra Horse Halter is not just another piece of rope, it is a tool!

1. If you worry about the nose band of the halter cutting into the nose, put a sheep skin cover on it. The object is not to hurt your horse, it is to block the horses movement.
2. If you are correcting a problem such as pulling, use the SHH consistently for an extended time. Horses are so smart that they will quickly determine if you are using the SHH or a regular halter. You must use it long enough to completely break the habit. I use the SHH "all" the time on these horses.
"I have an 8 year old OTTB mare. She loads fine but HAD a serious issue with pulling back when tied, to the point where she would break her lead rope, flip over backwards and go into a full blown panic. She was dangerous to be around and many people told me to put her down or give her away for free as she was"untrainable and crazy". I was nearing my wits end as I had tried every method out there to correct the pulling back. Luckily I came across a YouTube video demonstrating the SHH and quickly ordered it as well as a 12'double yacht braided lead rope. First I introduced her to the halter and then lunged her in it. Next I tied her. ..she panicked and pulled back twice and hasn't pulled back a single time since!!! She has learned to give in to pressure and respects the halter as well as giving me more respect. She's now my perfect riding partner with no vices and we are now jumping 2'6 fences. I feel much safer and more confident while working with her and this halter is worth its weight in gold! !!! I'd recommend this halter to anyone. Don't knock it til you try it!" Christine Benton- Gretna, Ne
