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

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

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder, She carries me away from all my fears, And when the world threatens to fall asunder, Her mane is there to wipe away my tears.

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!
