TRUST HACKAMORE COMBI LONG FLEXI SOFT HORSE BIT

The Trust Hackamore Combi Long Flexi Soft has a rubber covered nose piece, which provides some protection but is not considered padded. The nose piece is flexible. The mouth piece is covered with soft white flexible plastic. The mouth piece is adjustable over a 3 inch section of the shank. The shank is made of stainless steel with a curb ring at the top and shank ring at the bottom.

A Hackamore Combi applies pressure to the horse's nose and chin as well as across their tongue. It is a good bit for horses whose mouths require a light touch and who react well to nose and chin pressure. A Hackamore Combi encourages flexion at the poll and  allows for more effective turning than a Hackamore. The Flexi mouth piece applies contact to the horse's tongue width and stimulates it in a gentle yet effective manner. The leverage and severity increase with the length of the shank. This Hackamore Combi's shank is considered long.

Use: The cheek pieces from your bridle connect to the rectangular rings on the nose piece of the Hackamore Combi.  Depending on the length of your current cheek pieces, you may need to purchase shorter ones to use with a Hackamore Combi. The rubber nose piece of the Hackamore Combi should sit slightly above the area where the nasal bone ends and the cartilage begins. This bit can be used in three different rein configurations:

One rein can be used with this bit; a rubber, laced or web rein as your main rein connected to the round ring on the lower end of each shank.

Two reins can be used with this bit; a rubber, laced or web rein as your main rein connected to the small triangular bit ring, and a narrower flat leather curb rein connected to the round ring on the lower end of each shank.

Leather or nylon converters can also be used with this bit.  Converters connect to the small rectangular bit ring and the lower shank ring. A main rein can then be connected to the converters allowing the rider to use one rein instead of two. 

Rubber bit guards come with and are recommended for use with this bit.  Bit guards are made of an elastic rubber so they can be pulled over the bit ring.  Each guard acts as a protective barrier on either side of the horse's mouth between the sensitive mouth skin and the metal bit ring.

This Hackamore Combi includes a nylon 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 shank to rotate 45 degrees. This chin strap is often replaced with a single or double curb chain depending on each horse or rider's needs.
