Chuck Frasier Sidepull #CP40
$236.00 – $365.99
Description: The noseband on this sidepull is crafted from firm 3/8″ nylon rope, which is specially designed to ensure it lays correctly from the first ride. The headstall is made of single ply 3/4″ tight-fibered harness leather with a 5/8″ throat latch. This sidepull comes with slot conchos, which are the safest and most secure conchos I make. You can see the photos on the left for instructions on slot concho removal and application. The buckles are stainless steel with the leather below the buckles stitched to keep them in place.
How it works:
Since this sidepull is considered a bitless bridle, it is designed for use on the adult horse and is a great tool for when you don’t want to put pressure on the horse’s mouth while maintaining plenty of control. With the design of this sidepull, the stainless steel shanks come against the opposite side of the horses face with a direct rein pull so the horse starts his turns without leaning. Put your leg on him once the turn is started to teach him to complete the turn without leaning.
The noseband in combination with the dog chain curb provides a strong signal to stop.

Sliding Gag Bit with Snaffle Mouthpiece #20
Description: You have a choice of 3 snaffle mouthpieces and 3 headstalls with this Draw Gag Bit. The mouthpiece choices are a 3/8 inch common snaffle, a 5/8 inch common snaffle or a dog bone snaffle. See the photos at left, descriptions below, and dropdown to order. You also have your choice of 3 headstalls. The first is a stainless steel twisted wire headstall which is designed for horses that need a very strong signal. For the more sensitive horse, a 3/4 inch harness leather slide ear headstall or a 3/4 inch brow band headstall are also available. See the photo at left and the dropdown to order.
The custom designed bit slides easily on the hard lay nylon slide cord made especially for this bit. You will get quick and consistent cues from your reins because of the way the bit slides on this cord. The cord is attached to a stainless steel buckle which attaches it to adjustable single ply 3/4 inch harness leather cheeks. See the diagram at left to visualize this.
#9: The Two Piece (common) Snaffle mouthpiece #9 is 3/8” in diameter. It works to give you a quicker and more consistent response when you ask your horse to give its head.
#52: The mouthpiece on the #52 common snaffle is 5/8” in diameter. The large diameter will help your horse relax. If your horse is anxious or afraid of the bit this mouthpiece may work very well. This bit gives a slower signal than a mouthpiece that’s smaller in diameter. This slower signal will help reduce anxious behavior.
#16: The 3/8” Dog Bone Snaffle. This snaffle really helps a horse relax because it is such a gentle mouthpiece. The extra link in the middle of the bit spreads the pressure from the rein signal more evenly across the mouth than a common 2 piece snaffle. The copper rings promote salivation and give the horse something to roll with his tongue to help him relax.
How it works: The Sliding Gag Bit puts pressure on the mouth and at the same time the headstall crown puts pressure on the poll. These 2 points of pressure increase control of the nose and improve total balancing power. With the increased control and balance you will gain vertical flexion and feel.
The draw gag bit strengthens your rein aids so your leg cues given at the same time become reinforced. This makes it easier for the horse to respond. You will be able to concentrate on fine details of your training, rather than large rebalancing or repositioning efforts. This gag bridle will improve your horse’s flexibility and increase his response to your cues.
The center bar on the bit cheeks limits the movement of the sliding mouthpiece. This limited movement provides a quicker action and a much quicker release than gags with longer shanks. Your horse learns that when it breaks at the poll the release will be instant, smooth and consistent. Your horses will be calmer and more confident in training and competition when they are not trapped by a slow releasing gag.
Choose any Dennis Moreland split reins or roping reins for your sliding gag. The Sliding Gag is sold without reins. To select your reins visit the rein category and add them to your order.
Seek the help of a professional as you are learning to use a sliding gag bit if you don’t have experience.
Bosal 1 Inch #HU4
Description & choices:
Bosal size: This 1 Inch Bosal is handmade with a very soft braid on braid nylon core making it easy on the jaws of a horse and a particularly good bosal for starting colts.

This bosal will fit a medium size muzzle and will fit the majority of horses.
Heel knot: The heel knots on all Dennis Moreland Bosals are heavy to give instant release when the pressure on the mecate is released.

You may also order this bosal with a handmade 1/2 inch Latigo Headstall with Browband and Fiador or a 3/4 inch handmade Harness Leather Headstall with Browband and Fiador (see dropdown).

Hard 3 Plait Flat Hackamore #HV50
Description: The hard noseband on this hackamore is flat and made of 3/16 inch 3 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. This hackamore comes with a harness leather browband headstall, fiador and with your choice of hackamore reins.
Rein choice: You can see the reins available in the hackamore rein category and select your reins in the dropdown. The rein you choose will be tied to the hackamore before I send it.
How it works: Signals from this hackamore are strong. The weight of the heel knot causes it to fall instantly when the rein pressure is released and this releases the pressure of the noseband providing an instant reward for a proper response. I make this hackamore for use mainly on the older horse and I don’t recommend it for starting or training young colts.
Shown with the #CHR3 Hand Braided Nylon Hackamore Rein. Price with this rein is $340.99.
Round Hackamore with Rawhide Nose #HV60
Description: The noseband on this Round Hackamore with Rawhide Nose #HV60 is made of a single piece of nylon rope covered with hand braided rawhide. The noseband is available in 2 diameters: 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch (see dropdown to order). The headstall is made of 5/8 inch latigo with a 1/2 inch bled browband and has a nylon fiador. The hand braided ring knots on the noseband keep the headstall from slipping.
Rein choice: This hackamore is available with any rein in the hackamore rein category (order in dropdown). The rein you choose will be tied to the hackamore before I send it.
How it works: The round shape of the noseband allows for an instant and a very consistent signal anywhere on the face. The noseband comes in 2 sizes; 21 inches in circumference for close contact and very quick action and 23 inches in circumference to decrease the speed of the signal very slightly (see dropdown). This hackamore puts more pressure on the nose than the #61 Round Single Rope Hackamore because of the rawhide braid. The latigo headstall is lighter than a harness leather headstall allowing for faster communication than harness leather. This hackamore is made to be a training hackamore rather than for starting colts.
Hackamore is shown with the #CHR6 Round Nylon Hackamore Rein. Price with this rein is $267.99.
