    I believe the reins go on the lower ring, as they would on most bits/hackamores.

    Thanks a million I never used a hackamore before

    If you've never used a hackamore, I wouldn't suggest you use this on a horse anytime soon... some hackamores can be very harsh on the horse's face in a novice user's hands
    Just my personal suggestion if you were even planning on using it :)

    Looks like a mechanical hackamore. I use one often. Love it. But do be careful! Too high, and you won't get any results or you'll cause nerve damage. Too rough with it, and you'll cause nerve damage. Too low and you can break the bone formation at the end of the nose.

    The previous poster is correct. You connect the reins on the bottom rings. :) Best of luck!

    Yup reins on the bottom rings and I can't tell in the pic but it looks like it needs a chin strap? Maybe its there and I can't see it. If not it would attach to the top rings where your bridle is attached

    Reins go on the bottom ring but be careful with that bit. Personally I don't like them as they can be very damaging on the horses mouth if used incorrectly

    It's a hackamore. It goes over the nose, not in the mouth.

    Attach reins to lower rings. This is a pretty harsh hackmore don't use this on just any horse you will get yourself bucked off!

    Truth is I don't plan on using it I just wasnt sure what kind of hackamore it is seing how I never really used one more than once a couple years back(dident really like it),
    I was just planning on throwing it on the tack rack and let it collect dust unless my teacher advises me to use it thanks for all the replies and info!
