    That particular one is 45 at my local tack store so she got somewhat of a good deal on it. And you are right it is called a side-pull bit its in the category of a bit less bridle.

    As luvs pointed out, that is a sidepull, not a hackamore. This is a hackamore: Google Image Result for http://www.crossedsabers.com/images/Hackamore.jpg
    What you are using is very unlikely to break the nose, as there is no leverage. I'm glad it was brought up though, as it is an important point if you choose to use a hackamore.
    Anyways, the head-tossing could be because your horse doesn't like the feel of the stiff cord on this nose. You could try wrapping it in vet wrap to see it the smoother, softer noseband makes a difference.
    I hope I hear an update soon!

    I was using the hackamore. It looks like the same brand from the picture. I got this bridle BECAUSE I was worried it was too much for him. And the picture isnt exactly what it looks like. It has a flat leather noseband, not that stiff cord. I could see where I didnt clear that up

    And he's still tossing his head with the smooth noseband? Hmm. My horse has never been a head-tosser, so I don't have any experience in that area.

    Maybe he was just initially resisting the nose pressure? Sometimes it can take a bit to adjust to bitless riding, for the horse anyways.

    We have over 20 horses at our barn only one is in a bitless bridle she is 35 She is absoutley great in the saddle and can not even canter that is why she is in a bitless bridle so If you have to use a hackmore then he should not be in the bitless bridle so go out and train him to like the bit because well don't take the easy route which is worse route also

    He has been in a hackamore for at least 2 years now. He is better in it than in a bit. You don't know this horse and you apparently don't know what your talking about. I never asked for your smart ass opinion, I just wanted some info on this bridle. I can't believe you dare tell me how to train my horse. Have you ever thought about your horses needs? Oh, he doesn't like a bit, too bad. No, that is not how it works. So, kindly leave me and my horses alone.

    Apparently you have never dealt with horse that won't take the bit. You can't train head tossing and absolute agony out of a horse! Its not taking an easy way out. Actually a lot of trainers now a days train using a bosal right from the start. My horse uses a side pull and it works. I can stop him and I have complete control over him. Why put him in a bit if he doesn't need it? I don't really think that you have the experience to tell ANYONE how to train their horse. Considering you are ten and you don't have a horse and have only been riding for two years. I'm twice your have and have been riding for 12 years! And training for four!
