by Troy Griffith - Here is a method of tying your rope halter that will never allow the knot to tighten under pressure to the point that you can't untie it. I saw this being demonstrated on John Saint Ryan's Facebook Page, but had no way to share it so I made a video myself.

I have been informed that this method has been around for a lot of years, but as I could not find any previous video that demonstrated it, I can only surmise it is the best kept secret in modern horsemanship, until now. ;)

A couple things: I was thinking at the time I made this video that it would be for folks already using the standard method of tying and as such I took a couple short cuts. The first was I did not emphasize lifting up on the line to snug the halter up under the jaw for proper fit. The second was I did not complete the knot by pulling back on the tie so the halter wouldn't loosing and slide back down again. So, make sure you snug it up and then close the final loop completely; neither will change how effective the knot is, it still won't tighten at all pulling from the bottom.
