The hackamore is designed to create a pinching action on the lower part of the horse's head, usually just above the nose, to control both speed and direction of the horse. In general use, this type device controls only the forward and backward motion of the horse and are accepted most exclusively for use on horses that compete or are used in extreme speed events and situations such as Barrel Racing and roping. The greatest advantage of these devices is the absence of anything in the horse's mouth. There is almost no damage ever done to the horse's mouth inadvertently by an excited rider during top speed riding. This hackamore is constructed of a quality stainless steel and features a rubber covered bike chain nose. Cheeks measure 8 1/2" inches.
