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
