I've never heard about the cross between bosal and side pull. Indian bosal is somewhat (and I repeat somewhat) similar to the bitless bridle: the ends of the bosal cross under the jaw, so the more you pull, the tighter it goes. Is that what you have?

They are skilled Hackamore Reinsmen and understand the pros and cons.

I do not exclusively use just the Hackamore ,but because the title of the thread was the adjustment of the Bosal I limited the discussion to that.

There is a history to the Hackamore and that is what the NRCHA is trying to keep alive.

In the very early days of the Spanish Vaquero the snaffle was not as common as it is today and most of the horses were started in the Hackamore.
Years and years ago, my Dad spent some time in Cali with an old hackamore reinsman named Sid Mails (sp?) and learned how to use a bosal from him and until the mid 80's, when a snaffle started to get really popular, started all of his young'uns in a bosal. I have just started to learn how to properly use one but my training will have to be put on hold until I can get a new one.

Here are some pics of the bridle.

^^That is an excellent example of a nice, simple sidepull. I like that.

Ok thanks smrobs! I LOVE it. It's a really nice bridle that my mare responds well to. I love that it's simple and not bling'd out too, lol. I didn't know if it was a side pull because all the one's I've seen didn't have any rawhide on the nose. It only cost $40 too!
