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.
Reinsman's Stride Right bit is quickly becoming a favorite due to its great versatility. No matter what style of riding or type of horse, this bit just seems to fit perfectly. From penners, cutters, and reiners, to trail riders and gaited horses, the Stride Right is easily accepted by all.The Copper Modified Billy Allen is a great all around mouthpiece and the perfect choice for a horse with a low palate. Reinsman's Modified Billy Allen has more mullen relief than the standard Billy Allen giving it an ergonomic fit resulting in soft and even pressure across the tongue, bars and lips. The center barrel has limited movement preventing the bit from scissoring down into the tongue or up into the palate, but has plenty of rotation.The copper increases salivation for a more supple mouth. And, the sharp looking 7" flat cheeks add the right amount of leverage. Combined with the Modified Billy Allen, it is easy to isolate each side of the horse's mouth for lift, bend, flex and collection. Reinsman's Golden Glide bushings further enhance the smoothness of the independent cheek movement allowing for more precise cues.This bit is very versatile, making this a great choice for any style of riding.Copper is a soft metal, check for signs of wear before each use.
