Tying a Mecate onto a Rope Halter

So I recently got a really good deal on a used Parelli rope riding hackamore. Unfortunately, the noseband is too small for Scotch, who I bought it for. I found on this site (Cypress Lodge :: Promoting Humane Training and Treatment of Horses) that there is a way to tie a mecate onto the halter loop to leave more room for the muzzle, but there weren't any instructions on how to do this. Can anyone help me?

Is this your horse or is this the pic of the hackamore with the mecate on website?

I looked around briefly on the website ....there is an email address, maybe email them or call them. Maybe they have instructions for tying one.

Parelli has instructions on tying the reins/mecate on their website too so ...I don't know if this is the same but it would work just as well I would imagine.
Hope this was some help.

The picture isn't of my horse--it is an example of how to tie the mecate to the halter loop. I can barely wiggle it up Scotch's big head because the nose loop is too small when the reins are tied on.

Maybe I'll try emailing them, RadHenry.

That's a halter not a hackamore. If you want to ride in one then that's your choice (i did just today) but call it what it is.
