The Americanization of the descriptive word for this type bit comes from the Spanish word that means around the nose. 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. This hackamore is constructed of quality stainless steel and features a sweet iron twisted wire snaffle with a leather wrapped noseband and 10" cheeks.
