The Hackamore or Bosal Bridle

Many riders choose to ride in bridles with no bit like bosals and hackamores. These bridles work by using pressure on the horses face, poll, and nose to allow bitless communication. They are especially good for green horses, horses who respond well to gentle rein aids, or young riders who tug on their horse's mouth.

h3>Bosal vs Hackamore

Bosal hackamores and mechanical hackamores are very similar types of bridles, however there are some major differences.

Bosal Hackamore

A bosal hackamore looks similar to a rope halter except the noseband is made of thicker, heavier, and harder cow hide material. Instead of reins, a mecate attaches to the bosal just under the horses chin. This bridle uses mainly nose pressure to control the horse however, they are often used by riders who neck rein. There are also horse training bosals that help teach green horses how to neck rein.

Mechanical Hackamore

A mechanical hackamore uses leverage on the nose to communicate with the horse. The noseband functions similarly to how a curb bit works in the horse's mouth by creating pressure using shanks that connect to the bridle where a bit would traditionally be placed. Some mechanical hackamores even have double reins.

English vs Western Hackamores or Bosals

Hackamore headstalls can come in western or English styles, and there are also show hackamores available that are suitable for certain competitions. However, bosal bridles are usually only made in western styles though English riders can definitely make use of training bosals for young horses.
