But what about the consequences if the horse stood on the reins wearing a hackamore? Would be pretty bad to, I would think?
Im not dissing them, because I use a english hackamore on one of my horses, but also use a crossover on my other one. Just intreaged about opinions on this.
One of the reasons I went crossover on my TB was because he felt way to sensitive in the hackamore, like he wanted to avoid it a bit. But once I put him in a bitless crossover he was great. I put the hackamore on my other boy and he went exellent it in, love using it on him.
Used to use a ropehalter which I attached reins to but found at the faster paces ( canter, gallop ) it started to ride up the face a bit.
I tried a side pull a couple times in the past on my teachers horse ( ages ago ) . I quite liked them, but as far as I know they arnt that good for a horse that are tricky on stoping, hence were a hackamore would work better.
Havent tried a bosal. Would bee keen to tho at some point.
Kitten_Val that sounds like it would have been neat to go to. I have only ever been to one horse expo and it was really small, not much there. But was still cool. Very much enjoyed the massage demo for horses.
