    Okay guys I never meant for this to become a fight thread. I just wanted some advice on hacks and what would be good to use. You guys have helped me a lot and I thank you for that. I have hard hands Streakin so some of Ben's problems come from.

    And you think and if you didnt look at the different hacks one is less severe than the other. And how can you tell by a photo if the curb is tight or not... have you ever ridden in a hackamore? Or dealt with a horse than needed one?
    Yes, I have used hackamores. I find them to be innefective for my horses and my sport.

    If I am able to help, I will be more than happy to. However, I am done with this thread. Feel free to PM me!

    I used to have the same issue with one of my horses. The answer wasnt in a bit alone, but slow work :)

    Yes, maybe you have used hackamores on your horses and they didnt work good for you but maybe they will work for other horses.

    A hack is the most harsh thing on the market in the wrong hands. As I said befor it greatly depends on you.

    I just saw a picture of this in my sport horse marketplace magazine in an ad for a photographer. It was a picture from the WEG of a showjumper and it looked too me like they were in a hack AND in o-ring type bit with a wire connecting the two that went to one set of reins. I was very confused.

    Anyway, my barn uses hacks on all of their lesson horses. That way the kids can learn to have gentle steady hands without ruining the horse's mouth with a bit in it. I think that is totally the way to go with beginners.
