Ok, so I got a new rubber covered chain hackamore, and it doesn't look like it fits right. I tossed my fleece lined one for the same reason (horse sized, but it was so cheap that I figured it was sized weird and that's why I got it for so little money...), I'm thinking I need to go up a size when purchasing these. I'm kicking myself in the butt here, because it is SUPPOSE to fit him, all the measurements are right, but it looks wrong! I don't have a photo of him in the new hackamore, I plan on returning it. But here is a photo of the one I tossed into the junk pile, it obviously fits incorrectly and you can see that from the photo.
Please attach photos of your horses wearing their hakamores (not bosal's, those are fail proof). For one thing, I would love to see photos of your horses without pain bits! And for another, none of the photos on google's search results were what I'm looking to compare to. I would like to see how everyone else's hackamores fit their horses.
Mine isn't rubber but here is a pic of daughters pony w hers on...
On both of those horses the shanks line up with the mouth, mine lines up with... his nostril area. Hahaha I'm taking it back tomorrow! I paid $30, I knew that was too good of a price. I need to just bite the bullet and splurge on yet another "bit". Haha I think my gelding is just a fat head and needs a draft sized hackamore. Thanks so much for those pictures, I KNEW that was what these long shank hackamores are suppose to look like on the horse! Major help!
How do you like the leather one? It seems very light weight, and my gelding is still at the point in his training where he has to be "told" stuff, and not just do it perfect every time. He's only 5, so he still desperately wants to be the boss of everyone, it takes a few minutes to warm him up and I'm not sure if the leather one would be right for us yet?
My daughters pony took to it really good :) she runs her in barrels and can be a butt lol.. She turns like a dream now :) she would walk thurgh any bit we put on her :( so tried this and worked :) Posted via Mobile Device
