Hmmmm... I wonder if you've seen any western horses at all... Hackamore is a pretty popular tack, and number of people (even around here, in "english riding mostly" area) are using them on trails. You HAVE to know how to use one of course, but still something pretty common.

I realize this is probably a stupid question, but what exactly is a hackamore? I guess I could just Google it, but then I'd have to wade through the tech-speak of Wikipedia :)

the Hackamore he is using isnt fitting the horse properly and it is a cheap one that is very hard.

As far as I know Marecare based on his posts (even though I argue with him on certain things), he's a very knowledgeable horseman, and some people from this forum visited his place. So your post sounds like bashing (and I really curious HOW you can tell if it's hard ).

Please, read the HF etiquette rules!

They will be in and out of it through their 5th year as they progress.

You can search the forum - will get LOTS of posts on that. As an example:

Difference between a bitless, sidepull, and hackamore

Hackamore or Bosal?

If you feel bashed for some reason or other (personally I'm not seeing that you're being bashed...) my advice would be to refute the bash, rather than back-bash.
