It's just like a bit. The rings on the top of the shanks. Assuming you are talking about a shanked hackamore?

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I believe it's a mechanical. I hooked the headstall to It but w curb bit in same holes just seems really tight. I know the brad is weaver n it has braided leather on nose.

Yup, the headstall shouldn't connect to the rings the curb strap connects too. Don't worry I made that mistake too!
Here is how its supposed to be set up:
