Want to start my molly mule in the hackamore before using a snaffle bit
Debbie K on Aug 18, 2018
I prefer a hackamore. we find our horses enjoy the ride more and so do I!
Mary D on May 14, 2018
my horse does not trust bits and he gives in when I ride him in a halter, I just want to try something more efficient
Ayvree S on Feb 23, 2018
Looking at a Morgan. I don't do well with bits and this may work with training.
Elizabeth O on Jul 2, 2017
I needed a bit less bridle for my spooky horse. She will not take a bit, so this is the solution.

Quality item.
Adrianna H on Apr 2, 2016
Wanted something that works like a traditional metal mechanical Hackamore but not so severe and more comfortable for the horse. This works just as well and horse's love it!
Roger D on Feb 19, 2016
Liked the reins

I have a horse that does not work well with a bit. I am trying to find something that I can rely upon while riding."
N. J on May 4, 2014
I want to have a hack - the two reviews were positive for this and other reviews were negative for others so I believe the state line reviews are honest

what sizes is this???
Courtney B on Mar 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I had bought the hachamore for a small headed Paso Fino. The Hackamore is sized for an adult horse.
What is the best way to tie the the rope under the jaw?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2019
what are the round circles behind the horses chin for?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It helps your horse turn better and stop too.
Can you change out the headstall part of this item?
Rena Y on Feb 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Why would you want to. I haven't done this it is exactly what I wanted when ordering it. You might want to leave it as is and get another Harness. Wishing you good luck.
Does this have/come with a fiador?
Erin B on Nov 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. The Noseband is braided rope with sort of a weird knot and since it's synthetic, melted at the bottom. The reins tie onto the knot, but it is not adjustable like a fiador. I found that the noseband drooped over time, so I tied a piece of baling twine from it to the forelock just like a bosal. That keeps it in place. I also put split rings on the sides and use it like a sidepull. My horse really likes it and so do a couple of others I know.
Can you attach looped reins to this headstall?
Falon on Sep 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure you can. It may help keeping it from sliding all over the place
Will it fit a draft size horse ?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'd say yes. My girl has an oversized head and it fits her with room to spare. Very adjustable. Plus I put split rings on the sides and made it a side pull. The nose piece has gotten a little floppy with use, but I put a piece of baling twine and tie it up to her forelock so it stays in a good position. She loves it.
Would this Bosal Bridle fit a horse that usually wears a Cob size bridle?
Barbara S on Nov 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It fit a little large on my mustangs head and she's about 15.2. The buckles on the side come real close to her eyes needs to be more adjustable. Overall it's a good bridle and strong just needs to be a little more adjustable.
will this fit a pony?
rose c on Oct 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: don't think there would be enough adjustment might be better off with a regular Hackamore set up
I have a Canadian, do you think would this fit him?
kasia b on Jul 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use this on all my horses from 14 to over 16 hand quarter horses. This would fit just about any
Can you take off the reins and put your own on?
Emily M on Jul 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can :)
is it rawhide nose?
Luvmybuckies on Apr 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's braided rope, very soft however.
I am confused on how to adjust the throat latch. How do I adjust it properly?
Teresa M on Mar 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You should be able to fit 3-4 fingers between the throatlatch and the horse's jaw.
When turning from right to left does the Headstall come to close to the horse's eyes or does it stay back away from them?
Roger D on Feb 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Stay away. It helps if you keep u r hand level with horses nose and pull the rein out to the side u want to turn ... not straight back. My horses respond to very little pressure so it is never a problem.
Do the reins come tied on already? If not is there instructions on how to do this?
Roger D on Feb 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mustang advises us that this hackamore comes with the reins already tied on.
I have the opposite problem... I have a warmblood with a large head... 45 " cheek to cheek... can this be adjusted big enough to fit her??
Vivian S on Oct 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It goes on somewhat like a rope halter, so it can be adjusted that way. The nose piece cannot be adjusted, and I have a 16 hand Appy and it barely fits him.
Can a Mecate rein be used versus the split reins that come with this set?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It's hard to tell, but this is a thick rope split rein. I put split rings on the sides and used loop reins lie a side pull, and used the rope reins like a mecate and tied the second one around her neck when I was starting her. Rode my mare in this for six months, even on trail before I bitted her.

I just bought your 'Mustang leather breaking hackamore' item # E 001297, and I would like to get more precision on how to fit it on my horse and how to adjust it ? Thank you !
Delphy F on Jan 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: With the hackamore you want it high enough so it doesn't tip over the front of the nose, bit low enough to be effective. It shouldn't fit like a nylon halter it will sit lower, it doesn't need to be tight. When it's on, put the reins over the neck as if you are riding, lift slightly as if backing or a whoa. The bottom of the hackamore should lift the top should dip down slightly. This one is very forgiving. Good luck and enjoy!
I have a small arabian gelding who is being started under saddle, and completely refuses to take a bit. Would this be a good fit, and something good to teach him with?

BEST ANSWER: If you're starting out I would try the rope halter that has the rings on the side to start plow reining and then helping you to later on neck reining. The bosal is best suited as a graduate after they've got basic reining down. I do love this particular bosal but I had to start with the snaffle first before going to the bosal.
I'm thinking of using the hackamore for a standard sized donkey. Is the size adjustable?
Charlotte R on Aug 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The headstall is adjustable. I'm using it on an Arabian cross & I have it set almost as small as it will go for him. I haven't been close to a donkey (except miniature) in years. So not sure of the proportions on their heads.
what is diameter on bosal?
olivia b on Dec 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It depends on how you have the reins tied in but mine is about 22 inches around.
