I will definity looking into the indian style hack. Thanks for the info.
I feel I have more control over my mare when she is wearing this then when she is wearing a bit. My husband loves his for his old gelding and just barely has to tap the rein to get him to respond. My mare had more of a tendency to "run" through with the bit, but she dislikes the pressure that this style hack has, so she is doesn't run through with it. Besides, it works on the same principles as her training halter, so it is essentially moving all the ground work I have done with her to her back.
