Punch more holes, it needs to go higher. You have it over delicate nose bones and cartilidge, which is not good. It needs to go about 2" higher on the horse's face. If it's a nylon bridle, you'll need to get a thick nail really, really hot, then burn holes in it.

EEEKK! Its WAY to low on his noes. With the slightest pressure you could hurt him pretty bad. That part of the nose is very sensitive. It should be up there the halter is.

Yes, too low!! Just be careful with your hands with a shanked hack like this. The hack has a "pinch" effect (you pull back and the curb strap under his chin tightens, as well as the nose band) and can be very uncomfortable and damaging if used incorrectly. Hackamores require very light hands, for the most part.
