What are bitless shanks, and what are they used for?
The bitless shanks are metal connecting pieces at a hackamore or cavemore. The metal connection pieces connect the noseband and chin strap. At the top of the shank can attach the cheekpieces of the bridle. The reins are attached to the bottom of the shanks. The bitless shanks are supplied in pairs.
What is the effect of the bitless shanks?
The bitless shanks are an important part of a hackamore or cavemore and are a bridle without a bit. When taking the reins, pressure is applied to the horse's chin, nose, and behind the poll. The hackamore and cavemore is a bitless bridle with direct rein contact and has a direct release.
What are the differences between bitless shanks?
There are many different shapes and sizes of bitless shanks. The shanks in our shop are available in silver and for some also in gold. The length of the shanks determines how quickly the shanks act and how much pressure you can apply.
