The Hackamore Aram from the Freedom Riding Articles brand has a beautifully embroidered, softly padded noseband. The headpiece is straight and softly padded. The bridle has beautiful buckle closures, and the jaw strap is attached to the ring on the cheekpiece with clip closure. The noseband is adjustable with a Samour closure. The hackamore Aram is available in a universal size. Because the bridle is widely adjustable on the cheek pieces, jaw strap, noseband, and chin strap, this bridle is suitable for both cob and full.

How a Hackamore Acts:
A hackamore works as follows; the shanks tilt backward and upwards through the pressure of the reins. This movement creates downward and backward pressure on the nose. The chin strap engages and then puts pressure on the chin. Via the cheekpieces, there is pressure behind the horse's ears. The amount of pressure depends on the length of the shanks and the action of the rider's hand.
