haven't tried a hackamore...my mare is just turning 7 in may...had her since she was 11 months and trained her myself. Started her in a halter, then went to a snaffle, then a rope halter/side pull and then back to the snaffle. Found she's much happier without the bit which is why I went to the bitless, looked up a bunch of stuff and found that the drafts can have very low pallets (roof of the mouth) and any nutcracker action type of bit, ie snaffles are quite painful to them. Something to consider when you meet with your trainer. Good luck ;)

Hackamoore gives you as much control as you need.
