Ahhh... Cool.. I guessed it then! Woohoo! I had to re-read it myself, then a light went on! LOL!
Now, just for fun here is another neat little technique that's fun to play with and is useful for those horses that either "cant" use a bit, or an owner who prefers to use a hackamore:
Just like you would with the "bit" method of flexion, you can do the same thing "free handed" while teaching the horse to give to a hack. To do this, you stand directly next to the horse, mid way down along the barrel of the horse. Face the horses body. With the hand closest to the tail end, place it on the spine of the horse. With the opposite hand, reach out and grasp the face of the horse on top on the "nasal bars". (Mid way between the nose and the eye, there are two natural indentations of the face that spread out towards the nose). When placing your hand on this part of the face, cup your hand in a "C" shape, draping the fingers over one side of the face, and thumb on the opposite side. Using only pressure from the index finger and thumb, bring the face of the horse around to his/her own chest. By applying only a very soft and small amount of pressure from the "balls" of your fingers joints, you simulate the knots in a rope halter and hackamore.
Same method as you would with a bridle and bit, but more constructed for a hackamore type training. I found that some horses have either teeth problems or loss, and some owners only want a hack used as they feel its softer on the horse. I also use this with some of my youth as they may be too young for a bit, but its still fun practical exercises.
