Looking for a Hackamore?!?

I have found that my horse responds much better without a bit and since I only ride for pleasure I see no problem with this. So I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a brand/type of hackamore or bosal that they would recommend.

Thanks for any help.

Umm I would say anything leather would do good:)(halter, hackamore etc...)

Well, what kind did you try on him in the past that worked so well? And have his teeth been floated? Is he soft and responsive?

Steve Guitron, Bill Black, Ortiz, Ortega..just to name a few. Also know a guy in Oregon that does beautiful work.

A good hackamore bosal will cost you a couple hundred bucks. Which you will get what you pay for! So if you don't go with an expensive one, at least get one with a rawhide core the cheap ones are built with a cable. And you can tell the difference between bad braiding/crappy rawhide and good. It is pretty obvious. The plaits should be tight, smooth and even. You shouldn't see the core peeking through.

We started him in a clinton anderson hackamore but I don't want to pay $200 for one. He just chews a lot on the bit and is actually more soft and responsive in a hackamore. He's only 3 and had had his teeth checked.

One of these numbers?

He'll ride just as well in a rope halter. Or get a tie-down noseband and rig it to a bridle. That's what I did.

You can even get a rope one just like what you're using right now, but honestly that's pretty abrasive and harsh....
