I've seen that bosal (not the whole setup) at my tack shop and I don't care for it at all. It was rough feeling and I can see it rubbing a horse's nose raw. From my experience, you can't get a decent setup for that kind of money. Too many people buy that stuff that really don't know the difference or chalk it up to "that's all I can afford".
My look on it is that there are bargains out there that are well made and relatively inexpensive (Corriente saddles are one example) but, for the most part, cheap is cheap even if it looks good. If that was the price range that I was in, I would look for a quality used bosal. The hanger can be nearly any headstall. The 22' of rope needed to tie the macaty can be gotten separately at a boat store or the tack shop.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
