kelsyann-i will look into that
PGC-She doesn't like bits she's good with hackamores she just didn't have awhole lot of response with the one they were using. I'm pretty sure it had to do with her not being used to being ridden but there wasn't any head tossing or bracing just not a lot of reaction. She already rides with nothing but I always have atleast a rope around her neck incase she desides to not want to stop haha. Bratty mare days.

I've used a Weaver Braided Leather Nose with Hoover, and he adored it.

I'm not sure about gymkhana, but Hoover did lessons and trails with it. The only thing with a mechanical hackamore like that is you have pull more out when plow reining instead of straight back like you would with a bit.

My BO uses these:


Dr. Cook bitless bridles.They are VERY strong, and give very clear turn/stop signals. One useful feature is that they convert to halters by attaching a rope to the rings on either side (see at the bottom?):

I don't really want a bitless bridle as I have a special bridle I already bought for her.

Question: Does she neck rein really well already? I seem to be under the impression that you should not direct rein basically at all in a mechanical hackamore, so if she needs to be direct reined, I'd look for something else.

Have you consider an "indian hackamore?"

I have one and it has the possibility of quite a bit of power, while still being direct rein-able and neck rein-able. And you don't have to buy an entire bridle, it just attaches to your normal bridle. :)

wallaby-she is getting there she isn't a pro at it but she's getting back into the swing of it. I have seen those before but didn't know if they were good or not but if you could tell me more about them I would deffinately look into possibly getting one.

I really like mine. There are somethings I don't like about it, like I feel like it should release more, but Lacey doesn't mind it and she's one of those horses that WILL let you know if she doesn't like something, and since she hasn't started resisting it or anything, I have to assume that she thinks it releases enough. On the whole, I really like it. I've never had any issues with control while she was wearing it and I've even galloped in it (and she LOVES to gallop) without any issues. It's great for neck reining and it's also just fine for direct reining.

Is there anything else you want to know? :)
