Bosal question

This won't be happening any time soon, as I still need to find someone who can teach me to properly use one before I will ever put one on a horse and ride in it. But, I only have an english saddle. Sometimes I can borrow my friend's western, but is it even possible to ride with a bosal in an english saddle, because of the lead rope that hangs off of it? Please excuse my lack of proper terms, I am not experienced in this area.

I really don't see a problem with it. Maybe not totally " proper" but so what. As for the lead line part of the mecate reins just tuck it in your belt. That's usually where mine goes.

Yep! Like FF said, you can tuck it your belt loops.

I ride a forward seat/ hunt saddle or a polo saddle any time I am working cattle and don't want to rope with a specific crew. Bosal, curb, whatever they throw at me. Horses don't really care.

I use a breastplate with my English saddle. Would I be able to tuck it into the loop on one side where it attaches to the front of the saddle there?

Also yeah, proper looks don't concern me much, so long as it is safe. :P

Honestly, I've seen PLENTY of people ride with a Bosal that just has a single rope rein attached and no extra lead. You can train your horse before you get one by practicing with a halter and lead and tie the lead to the snap. It feels pretty much the same to the horse, so he won't notice much of a difference. BE aware, however, that you have to have a horse you can trust to always stop and slow down before riding with a bosal. I know that many Western trainers start their colts in one and work on the halt first and foremost, so if this is YOUR horse, please excuse an insult. =D

He is not my horse yet, but he will be as soon as I save up $400. :) He does actually have a very lovely whoa on him already, something I was quite pleased to discover the first time I hopped on him. No offense taken at all, you were simply being informative!
