I use something similar for my mare. It's made out of yacht rope. Works well

I used one similar to this and LOVED it. However, I don't like how this one has the "wrapped" rope, and I hate the knots. Why do these supposed "gentler" riding devices insist on those dang knots!!

The one I used was just soft nylon cord the whole way through. Worked really, really well and I feel it was a very mild hackamore, yet still had control when needed.

Knots like these:

That's my mare's bridle. It's not an Indian Hackamore like the second one you posted, just a sidepull. She prefers it by far over a bit and I don't have to get in her face very often, so it works for us. I like having the knots, but only because she can be a prick and gets a pop to the nose when she deserves it. When my hands are resting, the knots have no pressure on her face. If I pull back, they hit pressure points.

Side Pull Rope Hackamore BITLESS Bridle Attachment | eBay

That's essentially the same thing. I suppose you could ask about the stitching over top and send them my picture. I got mine from a lady who made a small business out of it, but she wasn't the greatest businesswoman and I believe eventually just quit making them.

I prefer the control of the knots. I usually don't need to use it, but she's gone full dumb ass and bolted across fields. I wouldn't have been able to haul her to a stop in a halter, but those knots hurt quite a bit after a while of full force pulling and she eventually would come to her senses and doesn't try that kind of stunt again.

I use the indian hackamore shown above, the one that crosses under the chin - my mare LOVES it! She's so responsive. I did find the course rope rubbed her hair on her nose, so I wrapped it in fleece and she's fantastic :D
