Which Jumper hackamore?

Ive been trying out different hackamores lately to see which one works best with my horse, but the hackamore i was using was similar to #1 but i thought it was a bit harsh so i changed to #2 but he doesnt seem to respond as easy.. any opinions???

#1

#2

not very good picture...
but we've jumped her in the way it is in the pictures... and we've also jumped her with a full bridle headstall, and the hackamore attachment. she used to root the young kids right out of the tack, but she doesn't do that anymore now that she's bitless.

In the picture you posted, the curb strap is much too tight. To have a better effect, loosen it a hole or two!!

I thought it was supposed to be 2 fingers.

Anyway, there are hackamores like #2 with longer shanks that may work better for your horse. They are a little harsher, but not as harsh as #1

Wow.. uncalled for. I did notice he has a winter coat by the way, however, that does not change the fact that it's on too tight. Thank you ErickaLynn, I agree with *at least* two fingers. You said you were not getting the same results, I gave you a reason.
Although it's whatever you want to do in the end, I wouldn't go for the longer shank in number one. While a hackmore is not in their mouth, the leverage is still quite strong. I would prefer to see a longer shanked hackmore like that in western where you don't have the constant (or almost constant) contact as seen in english.

Yeah, um, wow. Okay:roll:. No reason to throw a hissy fit.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
