My only problem is that I don't particularly like rope/western hackamores, but the English/mechanical ones don't fit his nose well. I read somewhere awhile back about someone having a hackamore/bitless bridle that they made themselves....it was a sidepull/lunging cavesson contraption. I can't seem to find it now, but if anyone knows what I'm talking about, I'd love to rip off your design! Lol.
I'm also looking at bitless bridles, I've heard some bad things about the Dr. Cook design, but I don't much like the Nutural design either. I found another that is in Australia, the Light Rider Bitless Bridle, and I like the fact that I can just buy the noseband and attach it to my current headstall, and it looks light, and the design looks like it would be lighter than either of the afore mentioned as well.
So opinions, suggestions?
