I like the english hackamore.
Yesterday he didn't have a chin chain, just a piece of twin and he was great, so I really don't think he'll need a chain.
Here's a stupid question, is turning a horse with a hackamore the same thing? It's based off of pressure?
I've never ridden a horse with a hackamore before, but I have ridden Gem with a rope halter, so I guess it's pretty much the same.
Thanks so much for all the suggestions! :)
