Cowgirl: The Fleece is the gentlest and the one I would probably recommend.

The rope nose is VERY severe and I would NOT use it unless on a very experienced horse. Imagine having that thing pulling on your face. Ouch!

The bike chain one isn't opening up for me though, brings me to the fleece one.

The snaffle is a bit...that doesn't make sense. It's not a hackamore so shouldn't put pressure...Maybe I'm wrong...

Snaffles do not have any leverage or poll pressure.

Some bits, for example a gag, will put pressure on the horses poll. Some bits/bridles put pressure on the sides of the horses mouth.

You put the hackamore on any headstall just like switching out bits well I guess I should say the headstalls I am familiar with all unlatch on the sides so you can switch bits or whatever hackamore is all I ever use I teach my colts to take a bit but don't use them

If she goes easy in it, and you know how to use it properly, I see no problem with it.

Personally I feel that mechanical hackamores are too severe and I've seen some inexperienced people do a number in them. Personally I would never use one, but that is just my own believe.

hackamore, ride, trail, western
