Question Can anyone tell me what this means?

My birthday is coming up, and one of the things on my list is a braided leather hackamore. But I'm having troubles of trying to understand how you know the size is just right for your horse. I have a quarter horse and his bit size is 5", not sure if that gives info but, could you guys look at his website please this is the hackamore I want on my list... Braided Leather Hackamore | BIW1204 | Greenhawk

if you need more info just say so either on my horse or on the website.

Thanks! :)

I don't see a size option on that page. Are you asking in general? I am also considering a hackamore, so hopefully someone post!

Those are more of a one size fits all kind of thing.

So... are you essentially buying the nose piece and then attaching it to your headstall?

Yep that is correct. It is like any other bit.

I know they sell different sizes if you have a mule or draft but other than that I think its a one size thing.

It's not my first choice in a hack I don't think, but I have faith in the ability of your hands. ^^

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
