Hackmore bit ??

I use this type of Hackmore bit on my mare, has anyone else ever used a Hackmore bit and how did you like it?? My mare does not like any kind of bit in her mouth although she was trained with a rubber bit. By a professional trainer.

I've tried a hackamore with my mare and she couldnt stand it. I've tried riding around in a halter and stuff just to see if my gelding likes it and he hates not having contact with my hands so I guess it just depends on the horse.

Aappyfan, the pic you showed is a mechanical hackamore and they can be useful for horses that have problems with their mouths. They can also be very severe (an any device can be) with a heavy handed rider due to the leverage they exert on the nose and jaw of the horse.

Technically it is not a bit since it doesn't go in the mouth; it is just refereed to as a hackamore

Hope it works for you and your horse.
