    When to transition from the snaffle to the hackamore is somewhat of a personal opinion and some never use the snaffle at all.
    I start most of my personal horses in the hackamore and never use the snaffle bit, but again it is just my preference. If your horse is light in the snaffle, will turn, back, stop and can be ridden in all gaits then I would not hesitate to make the transition. You will have to introduce the horse to the pressure of the hackamore Just as you would with a bit.

    She was very heavy in the mouth when I got her, so my main goal when riding her is to encourage her to 'lighten up'. She is almost to where I feel comfortable making the transition, but I do want her back up to be a little bit cleaner than it is now, and to really plant her hind end when she stops. I imagine I'll be shopping for a hackamore in a few weeks. We're going to ranch camp next week, and will be riding 6-8 hours a day, so that will give her the 'polish' that I'd like to see before making the transition.

    It's another phase like with the NH training that isn't all that natural.

    I actually felt pretty dumb, when I had my 'aha' moment that it is the exact same thing as pressure and release, but by using a different phrase, it stands out more. Just like ALL of the NH trainers who have similar basic exercises but name them differently. I guess I just didn't expect to see that in a different setting, because I usually call it out right away. Not sure why it confused me this time. Where horse people are, marketing will happen! Plus, this guy has a big moustache, too...

    Don't feel embarrassed. That is what marketing is designed to do, change your perception
