Rope Headsetter with Rawhide Nose #CST1
Description: This headsetter is made of 3/16 inch rope with a hand braided rawhide nose. All hardware is stainless steel. The headsetter price does not include a tie down strap but you may purchase a Leather Tiedown Strap #ZG, either 3/4 or 1 inch in width, or a Nylon Tie Down Strap #ZH with the headsetter (see dropdown).
How it works: Pressure is applied from the tiedown strap to the nose as the head goes up causing the cheek pieces to slide through the nose piece rings until they hit the top stops on the cheek pieces (the rawhide nose piece on this headsetter gives a stronger signal on the nose than the plain rope headsetter). As the cheek pieces are sliding pressure is increased at the poll. This headsetter applies more pressure to the poll than to the nose. The pressure points together cause the horse to lower his head to a natural position to find release. This is a very popular training tool with ropers and can help those horses that have a tendency to raise their heads while roping. It can be a great training aid for other disciplines also. Horses can learn to ride with their heads lower if ridden in the headsetter tiedown.
