I have tried a mechanical hackamore on him to see how he liked it and he really wasn't a fan of it. He threw his had a lot and was very unimpressed. I was reading and mozart said that the Little S hackamore can be used for horses who are heavy on the mouth. Woudl this be a good thing to try with my Fjord? I use a french link and a simple single joint snaffle on him. 2 seperate bridles.
My Tb used to be heavy on the hands too and threw his head alot, so that's why I tried the hackamore and he loves it now. Id say try the hackamore a bit more and see it took a few times for my horse to respond to it. Just make sure the hack is fitted right and the chain or strap underneath isnt too tight.
Some time this week ill make you a video of me riding in my gelding in the mechanical hackamore.
O Just for peoples information I NEVER told her to use a hackamore and snaffle, we were discussing what eric lamaze uses
