Jumping Hackamore

Has anyone ever used a jumping hackamore before. I wanted to get the pessoa jumping hackamore for my Oldenburg mare. There are some very good reviews on it but it is a little pricey at $118. My mare hates her bit (D ring snaffle) and I think bitless might be the way to go. Any thoughts?

I would try borrowing a hackamore first to try it out, or trying other bits to see how it goes rather than spending a crap load of money on a hackamore you don't know will work.

I would if I knew anyone with one. But I don't. Thank you for the advice anyways.

That's too bad :( I wouldn't want to spend 118$ on a hackamore just in case it didn't work, but I guess you could always sell it after if it doesn't work. Have you tried any other bits?

I went to a grand prix and saw an AMAZING horse flying over the jumps and it looked like he respected the rider so much. He had a hackamore on. It was cute because he was sticking his tongue out and flapping it all over the place too! I would try to find one to test before buying one for $118. Try looking at other places to see if you can locate one for a cheaper price.

Some horses will respect a hackamore, but others will not. I'm pretty sure that all the people in grand prix events also have a crap load of money to spend on 118$ hackamores and if they don't work they can shove them in the back of their trailer without caring. ~ I personally am not a bank machine yet have decided to pick a very expensive sport!

Yes they do use hackamores in grand prix events. Rodrigo uses this exact hackamore on Baloubet du Rouet, but that isn't the reason I want it. I haven't found any bad reviews on it like I have on the other hackamores. There is one other that is very inexpensive that has the same set up as the one that I want. The only reason I haven't gotten it is because the reviews said that it broke easily on them, also I bought jump cups from the same website that has it and they came to me broken and I had to have them welded back together. Thanks to you guys I think I will buy that one first before getting the Pessoa one, just to see if it works for her. Then if it does then I can still use it on my gentler mare, until something happens to it.

Hmm, some tack stores will let you try it out once before you buy. You could always ask. :)

Can you do a trial with a tack store? Or "buy" one, and take it back if it doesn't work lol?

Maybe. It would have to be from an online tack store because I have already been looking for them in my local tack shops.
