What do y'all think about the hackamore bit that TSC sells? Is it any good? Over priced? Opinions? Any good ebay ateratives for hackamore/bitles bridles? (I am such a cheapie)

Halter with reins attached. Cheap and works as good as those super expensive ones.

A horse can ignore anything given the proper motivation . Bits and head gear are all psychological devices to make us THINK we have control over our beasts .

Don't buy cheap when it comes to horse tack. Nickle plated hacks end up rusting pretty quick and can even hurt the horse if the rust is on the horse side of the hardwear.

I prefer a side pull, jumping hack, or cross-under bitless myself, over a mechanical hackamore. But then again, a halter with reins clipped on the sides works just as well too .

Kitten Val and luvs2ride got it right. I use a halter and lead on mine when just piddling bareback and the only thing is that they have to be taught how to react to the different pressure. With proper training, a halter and lead can be just as effective as a bitted bridle. I also don't much care for the mechanical hack because they have the potential to be so dangerous if fitted wrong or use too harshly.
