Bitless, Bosal, Hackmore, Sidepull....
I am looking for a bitless rigup to train my youngster in. I have a side-pull and a couple hackmore bridles with shanks, but his GIANT warmblood head does not fit in anything. I don't want to use shanks on him right now, so I want something like a side-pull, bosal or indian hackamore. I like the western type training bridles, but when I look around I can't find anything big enough. He doesn't fit in a regular horse size in western stuff (western and english people have an ENTIRELY different opinion about what size an average horse is) I like the rawhide nosebands. Does anyone know where I can get a draft or warmblood size bitless like this, or maybe custom order one?
The basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
He's of the color of the nutmeg and of the heart of the ginger.
His neigh is like the bidding of a monarch,
And his countenance enforces homage.
- William Shakespeare
