Truthfully, I couldn't find a picture of the exact one I have. It is a curbed mouthpiece like the one above, but the rings on it don't have rein spots...it's like a D-ring...weird I know - I think it was hand made. There is like zero bite to it...the boys love it

This is Lady's but hers is in black. It's a jumping hackamore, the top rings attach where the bit would, and the side rings attach to the reins.
I just like it because it's simple and she responds to it without any fuss. Eventually I'll have to introduce a bit to her, which she has only had in a few times.

Crow was ridden with the Real Eascuela today for the first time (this photo is just for documenting a bridle tho ;) he had it together with a muserola. Sorry for the large image.


Normally he's ridden with only a muserola (i.e. Not with the curb)


A riding cavesson (it used to have a 1mm thick piece of leather around it.. but it was damaged and it really only make a differense for the eyes ;)


Or one of the other riding cavessons I have..


Sorry about bombing you with photos xD

I'm really curious about the sidepull like thing you have in the third photo down- does having the reins attached so close to the front of his face offer better control? And what is it called? Thanks!

The one with the black bridle and no mouthpiece? It's a muserola (metal bar screwed onto a regular noseband with the rein-rings). Some muserolas has studs/spikes pushing down onto the mose (you'll see if you google) mine hasn't. It works like a non-jointed riding cavesson.

I guess it gives a little more controle and more obvious signals, but mostly because the rings poke out a bit from it and are unyielding to the metal bar under the noseband. It makes it easier to flex the horse and work him through his body than a regular sidepull :)

Zap, in the 4th picture (above the bridles), what is the ring on top of the nose for?

(It's Zab.. with a B.. short for ZaBina.. Why does everyone here call me ZaP? XD)

It's for lunging or working the horse from the ground, or just leading it. (great when you want someone to hold your horse when you ride, for safety, need to lunge the horse to let it buck if it has sadel tvång(''saddle angst'') or want to be lunged to find you balance etc etc etc :P

I'm so sorry, it's just that Zap is a word and my fingers sometimes have a mind of their own when typing.
