A hackamore may look relatively simple in its construction of a noseband connected to a headstall and reins; however, to control a horse without a mouthpiece takes patience and training.Proper placement is important when fitting a hackamore. Adjusted too low, it will hinder the horse's breathing. It should sit on the gristly part of your horse's nose, approximately 4" from the top of the nasal cavity.Size of the hackamore is also important. The wider/thicker the nosepiece, the more pressure is dispersed, thereby making it gentler than a thinner nosepiece.This bit is a combination, sweet iron twisted snaffle mouth with leather wrapped noseband and has 8" cheeks.
