I used a pressure halter on my mare tonight and it works
wonders!! I was wondering if anyone knew where I can get one from?
I used the 'Be Nice' but I was hoping to get the Richard
Any ideas? Also does anyone know how many ££'s they are?

Have a look at http://www.libbys-tack.co.uk
They do a webbing endurance bridle which converts into a
controller headcollar - costs about £30. Not strictly
speaking a pressure headcollar, but gives a bit of extra
control. Alternatively, the low tech approach is
to wrap the lead rope round your horses nose and thread it
back through the headcollar - works like a choke chain on a
dog, and only comes into effect when needed!

£30. then - was good for loading difficult mare but
haven't found it useful really for anything else - what
can I say my girls are perfect!

If you go onto the Money Roberts website they sell them
there and they are about £40 if I can remember rightly, but
they look just a headcoller with like a leadrope over the nose
and through the other side.

I've got one of the black controller headcollars (bought it
in CAM). It is the type with knots (don't know if that's
what they're called) in certain places which puts pressure on
if the horse behaves badly. It is basically a rope style
I used it when I had difficulty leading my boy as he used to

I got my Be Nice from my local tack shop - and it is
wonderful! Especially for loading and also my mare developed a
nasty habit of pulling away when being led which the Be Nice
