My gelding tosses his head if he has a bit in his mouth. But usually when I get the chance to ride, it's on my property and I don't even tack him up, I just do the one rein thing bareback. I have a bit of a breather from nursing school right now, so I am panicking trying to find the perfect fit hackamore to hit the trails with. He still spooks, so the whole one rein thing is a no go for the trails! LOL

He's being upgraded from a stop and turn, they are a very harsh hackamore. I might consider checking out the leather one, it's very eye catching! Is there anything beneath the braided leather?

Lol :) we looked at the rubber one but thought the leather would be better for her :) and was having a lot of problems w getting her to take a bit :( have you hade his teeth checked? I had a 6 yr old gelding that was a head tosser, got his teeth floated rode a lot better no more head tossing :) also vet let me feel his teeth omg my arm was full of scratches kinda crazy :)

There is a bicycle chain between the leather.

I didn't know there was a chain between the leather, that's the same as the rubber then. Pretty much. I floated his teeth 3 months ago, I check him very often for sharp edges. When I was learning how to float and use my fingers to check the teeth, I pulled my hand out of his mouth a tooth filleted my thumb.

:) have you tried the other headstall w the hack? I know we had to get a smaller headstall to make it fit better :) I wish I had more answers for head tossing :( my hubby's colts head shrinks n gets bigger I think lol he was riding him last week his headstall was to big but just a cpl day earlier it was to small :() lol

He doesn't throw his head in a hackamore, unless he's just pitching a "fit". But after warming up he get's over it. He will toss his head the whole time with a bit in his mouth though, bits are real painful. A well trained horse will deal with it. Have you ever heard of soring? It's an illegal practice that some racking horse owners do to make their horse walk a certain way. It's so horrible!!!!!!

:) certain bits and heavy hands :) I think someone made a post about it made me sad :( when my daughter rides my gelding mind you she is 65 lbs wet lol.. But I always tell her he is very soft in mouth and she can't pull at all on him :) her pony she had trouble w bit and the hackamore has made a totally diff pony :) that's cool I hope you can get one that fits him rite :) I don't know where you from but a buddy of ours runs a tack shop if you can't find the leather one :)
