    Yes. And I found my custom made surcingle on hte ground with two straps torn off. I actually saw the mare in the distance making for her stall. Only thing she couldn't figure out how to get off was her galloping boots!

    We had one who could take off Rambo rugs like a pullover sweater; all the straps and buckles intact.

    When my mare was at Fairhill in training for racing, trainer put her on the hot walker for some weight loss work. when he returned her halter was going round and round and she was off eating grass!

    Yep, BTDT got photos that I don't have access to on the blackberry. It's the main reason my two ponies both couldn't be staked out in breakaways, risk of fallout from planned escapes was worse than the risk from a rope halter. Though both of them squirreled out of rope halters more than once!
