Difference between jumping hackamore and sidepull?

Is there a difference?

I've ben debating between a sidepull or a form of a bitless bridle for trail rides on Sunny, but I can't decide which.

I then stumbled upon jumping hackamores which look like English nosebands with rings on the side for the reins. Is there some other action it does that I can't see aside from simple lateral pressure? Wouldn't that make it just like a sidepull? Or am I really missing something?

Any info appreciated!

Sidepulls are sold under various names. My arab rode in a double ply soft Hamilton nylon halter with the adjustable noseband.

Generally speaking, a sidepull is western, and a jumping hackamore is english.
There is no difference in action, though a jumping hackmore is usually padded and made of flat material, making it much more gentle than those stupid rope nosed sidepulls.
I used to refer to them both as sidepulls, but caught a lot of flak for it, so mow differenciate them, but only for that reason. :)

Oh, okay! Thank you!

I had been looking at an English sidepull but was hesitant because it's $100. Now I'll just get the jumping hack since it's only $30 and put it on my current bridle!
