Are you looking for a hackamore bit? The hackamore bit has no mouthpiece and is therefore not in the horse's mouth. Because of this, there is no pressure on the tongue or the layers of the horse, but gives pressure behind the ears, chin, and nose. The hackamore is a bit less tool with a mechanical leverage, comparable to a curb. In the Art of Riding shop, you can go for a hackamore! In addition, you will find many more products in our webshop that make riding more horse-friendly.
It is understandable that it may be a little unclear which hackamore you have to choose. There is often a lot of choices and that does not make it any easier. A hackamore works as follows. When you pick up the reins, the scissors tilt backward and upwards. This movement creates a downward and backward pressure on the nose. The chin strap comes into action and puts pressure on the chin. Through the cheek pieces, there is a pressure behind the ears of the horse. The amount of pressure depends on the length of the scissors and the softness of the rider's hand.
You may wonder how you can know exactly whether a noseband fits. First, you have to determine the nose circumference. Place 2-3 fingers under the cheekbone and then measure the circumference. Then it is important that you measure from eye to eye on 2-3 fingers under the eye. This is for the length of the jaw strap. Finally comes the headpiece. You should measure this behind the ears from noseband to noseband. Are you still not completely out? Then we're glad to help!
