    First let me point out that for some of us the term Hackamore means a bosal and should not be confused with a Mechanical Hackamore that is usually made of steel and has shanks for additional leverage. A traditional hackamore consist of a leather or rawhide Bosal, a Bosal hanger and generally Mecate reins. I would never use a mechanical hackamore, however I have started dozens of colts in a traditional hackamore ďAKA rawhide bosalĒ and have never so much as rubbed the hair off a horse. No different than if I started them in a snaffle bit I would set the horse up to succeed by teaching them how to carry the device and respond to its pressure before I rode with it.

    I typically ride all my personal horses in a traditional hackamore through the initial training stages. Sometimes for up to a year or more before letting them carry a bit with a two rein setup.

    Just as many have already pointed out the devise is only as cruel as the hands behind it. I see people every year that turn snaffle bits into a weapons just because they donít understand how to use it or donít care.

    There is lots of good information about the hackamore & bridle horse training process currently available if you are interested.

    I don't know why its so hard for people to get it, after all, if you pick up a bridle with a snaffle bit in it and say "this is my bridle" no one stands there and says "no no, that's a snaffle bit" yet they don't seem to understand what a hackamore is (in fact I think is should be called a hackamore and the mechanical ones given the qualification of mechanical hackamore, after all they were around along time before those contraptions).
