Bosal or Hackamore?
In some regions when used alone, the larger bosals are known as “hackamores.” This can cause some confusion when ordering (especially true in many areas of the Pacific Slope). For clarity, please bear with us.
“Bosal” merely means “nose band.”
“La jaquima,” or the Anglicized “hackamore” means “halter” or “headstall.”
If you want to ride in the tradition using the hackamore, you will essentially need an appropriately sized and made bosal with a hanger and a mane mecate close in diameter with enough twist and weight to tie up as a hackamore rig.
