The horses at the ranch I go to ride with bosals which I think are awesome. John, the owner of the ranch who started the PTSD program (Combat Veterans Cowboy Up) doesn't use the bits because the people that used to ride didn't have soft hands.
But this hackamore and s hackamore...the just look that metal bosals with padding on the part that goes above the horse's nose. And those chains below...what's the purpose???
