This little hack is made out of 4 or 5 strands of our 1/4″ halter cord, to form a 3/4″ – 1″ diameter noseband. Your noseband can be made from either our soft, double braid rope, or a stiff halter cord, and will come on your choice of any of our fantastic headstalls. The default headstall is the one that is shown on ‘Rusty’. If you choose one of our headstalls that have a quick change attachment at the bit, I strongly suggest you choose the 5 strand braiding option, which will help the noseband to fit more snugly into the bridle. There are so many options with this little setup- I have tried to keep it as simple as possible, so I have only offered one noseband color- if you want multiple colors, I can do as many as you choose- just make a note when you checkout or shoot me an email after you order.
For your rein options, choose from either a 1″ flat brad (same great rope we use for all of our leads and reins- it just dosn’t have a ‘core’, so is braided flat instead of round) OR our traditional, round rope. You can choose the split rein option (pictured) which will be a 16′ continuous rein, braided in to form about a 7.5″ split rein. Or, if you prefer a mecate, I can do that as well, with our double braid rope. It will be standard 22′ length.
When sizing, you want this hackamore to be on the snug side. If your horse’s muzzle measures 22 inches, chose the 24 option- if you go with 26, it will still fit, but will be sloppy- you want these muzzles to be a bit more snug than you would your halter. If you have any questions, email me- or feel free to include your horses muzzle measurement in with your order. If ordering for a large pony or tiny Arabian, our Cob sized headstall will fit-
