I took a long time till I bought my bosal/hackamore set.
I didn't know a good brand either, but knew that the ones on Ebay
weren't what I wanted.
I found one advertised in my Western Horseman magazine and decided to take a chance on that one. I put out the question on here and another forum and got a lot of favorable responses on it.
I just got it two weeks ago and love the quality.
I got the whole set, but, if I was to do it again I might just get their bosal and put on marine yacht rope reins instead of the horsehair reins that came with the set.
But, I may just end up liking the horsehair and would have missed the chance of knowing about it if I hadn't have gotten them.
Here is the website I ordered from. I ordered Special #2 for $149.00. It's made by Steve Guitron. Specials
In fact there was a post made by me just recently that has other great advice and they named some other good bosals.
