Hard 4 Plait Hackamore #HV51
Description: The noseband on this Hard 4 Plait Hackamore is made of 3/16 inch 4 plait twisted nylon rope. At 5 inches in width between the cheeks this hackamore is 11 inches in length from top to bottom. If you need a larger or smaller hackamore please give me a call at 817-312-5305 and I’ll make the size you need. Click here to visit my blog to see how to measure your horse for a hackamore. The hackamore comes with a harness leather browband headstall, fiador and with your choice of hackamore rein.
Rein choice: You can see the reins available in the hackamore rein category and select your rein in the dropdown. The rein you choose will be tied to the hackamore before I send it.
How it works: This hackamore gives the strongest signal from the pull on the rein of all the hackamores made at Dennis Moreland Tack. The heel knot gives you instant release when the rein pressure is released thereby rewarding the horse instantly for a proper response. I do not recommended this hackamore for riding or training colts but it can be a very good hackamore for those horses that are not very sensitive to the pull.
Shown with the #CHR3 Hand Braided Nylon Hackamore Rein. With this rein the price is $345.99.

Double Off Latigo #DO1
Description: I make my Double Off Latigos just the right thickness to be very strong but not leave a lump under your fender. They are available in two sizes: 1 3/4 inches wide by 4 1/2 feet long and 2 inches wide by 6 1/2 feet long. Both of these widths will fit well on any of my cinchas, it’s your personal preference and size of your horse that determine which to buy. Ranch cowboys have told me they prefer the wider, longer double-off.
Call Dennis when ordering (817)-312-5305 if you prefer an extra thin double off.
See my Tack Talk Article The Double Off Billet for more information on double off latigos.

California hackamores or jaquimas were introduced from Mexico to California and western North America by vaqueros in the late 1700s. The vaqueros knew hackamores were essential for teaching a horse the balance and feel necessary to become a finished bridle horse and a responsive and invaluable partner for cattle work. Learn everything from the history of the hackamore to the art of training in the hackamore in this well written and illustrated book that passes along the time-honored traditions of the vaquero horseman.
