ENGLISH HACKAMORE GB HORSE BIT

The English Hackamore has a padded leather noseband with two buckle adjustments on either side. Each buckle has three size options. A Hackamore applies pressure to the horse's nose and chin instead of their mouth. The Hackamore is good for horses whose mouths have cuts, sores or horses that have been injured through use of other bits. A Hackamore encourages flexion at the poll but is not as effective for turning as most direct pressure mouth piece bits. The leverage and severity increase with the length of the shank. This Hackamore's shanks is considered to be short.

Use: One rein is used with this Hackamore; a rubber, laced or web rein as your main rein connected to the round bit ring on the end of each shank. The cheek pieces from your bridle are connected to the D shaped rings on the top of each shank of the Hackamore.  Depending on the length of your current cheek pieces you may need to purchase shorter ones to use with a Hackamore. The leather noseband of the Hackamore should sit slightly above the area where the nasal bone ends and the cartilage begins.  

This Hackamore includes a leather chin strap. The chin strap must be smooth, flat and adjusted correctly for the Hackamore to work properly. The chin strap should be adjusted to allow the the shank to rotate 45 degrees.

We recommend using a hackastrap with this bit. It should loop through the top of each cheek piece and attach snuggly under the horse's jaw and be placed ahead of the throat latch.
