Description: This fiador is made of 1/4 inch tan solid braid nylon rope. It comes ready to attach to your hackamore with the fiador knot and jug knot tied. Tie a simple sheet bend knot (the same knot used to tie a rope halter on a horse) to secure it on your horse. To see how to attach it to your hackamore click here.
How it works: The fiador (also known as a Theodore) is a safety device or keeper that is similar to a throatlatch on a bridle, but it’s used on hackamores to make certain a hackamore stays securely on a horse’s head. A horse in a hackamore, that has a fiador, can be ridden, led or tied without the risk of the hackamore being scratched or pulled off.

Double Rope Hackamore with Rawhide Nose #HV31
Description: The Double Rope Hackamore with Rawhide Nose HV31 is made of 2 pieces of 3/8 inch nylon rope covered in beautiful hand braided rawhide. At 5 inches in width between the cheeks this hackamore is 12 inches in length from top to bottom. I can make additional sizes but you will need to call to order: 817-312-5305. The headstall is made of harness leather with a doubled and stitched browband and nylon fiador.
Rein Choice: This hackamore comes with your choice of reins (see dropdown) which can be seen in the hackamore rein category.
How it works: Because of the addition of the rawhide, this Double Rope Hackamore with Rawhide Nose has more weight than it’s sister HV30 Single Rope Hackamore. This extra weight combined with the feel of the braided rawhide can help the horse learn to carry the hackamore resulting in a more correct head carriage. Your horse will not want to lean or push through this nosepiece which will help to prevent elevation of the head. Because the hackamore is made of 2 pieces of rope the noseband is broader than a single rope so the signal is spread over more area of the face. The weight also allows very quick but smooth release of pressure on the horses nose when it gives to the pull of the reins. The weight of the heel knot allows it to fall quickly when the pressure on the reins is released which in turn releases the pressure of the noseband on the face. This series of events happens smoothly and quickly to reward the horse instantly for a proper response. This hackamore is especially good for training green horses and is a great hackamore for loping.

Snap and Buckle for Breast Collars and Martingales #ZE
Description: This replacement strap fits all breast collars and leather martingales. It’s made of doubled and stitched 3/4 inch harness leather with a beveled stainless steel buckle and snap. The leather is sewn together beneath the buckle to prevent the buckle from slipping down the strap. This strap has been edged, hand-rubbed, oiled with Neatsfoot Oil and hand-rubbed again to give it a very nice finish.
Single Rope Hackamore with Rawhide Nose #HV21
Description: This is a beautiful hackamore that fits correctly. The nose button is covered in hand braided rawhide. Each strand of the rawhide is beveled by hand on all 4 edges so it lays smoothly on your horses face. The noseband is 5 inches wide between the cheeks and 10 1/2 inches long.
The headstall is made of single ply Hermann Oak harness leather and the brow band is doubled and stitched. The headstall adjustment buckles are stainless steel. This hackamore comes with a nylon fiador. The fiador is easy to tie (ties just like a rope halter) and will prevent the hackamore from being pulled or rubbed off.
Rein choice: This hackamore is available with any rein in the hackamore rein category. Make your selection in the dropdown. The rein you choose will be tied to the hackamore before it’s sent to you.
How it works: Besides being eye-catching, the rawhide on the nose button gives a slightly stronger signal than a plain rope noseband gives. It also keeps the hackamore rounded across the nose. The weight of the heel knot gives you a smooth and quick release when the rein pressure is released. This rewards your horse instantly for a proper response. This is an all-around hackamore. Use it for everything from starting colts and trail riding, to training and loping your show horse. This is my favorite all around hackamore. Dennis

Double Rope Hackamore #HV30
Description: The noseband on this Double Rope Hackamore is made of 2 pieces of 3/8 inch nylon rope. At 5 inches in width between the cheeks this hackamore is 12 inches in length from top to bottom. I can make additional sizes but you will need to call to order: 817-312-5305. This hackamore is made with a browband headstall, fiador and with your choice of hackamore rein (see dropdown).
Rein Choice: You can see the reins available in the hackamore rein category. The rein you choose will be tied to the hackamore before I send it.
How it works: The double rope hackamore pulls over a wider area on the bridge of the nose than the #HV20 Single Rope Hackamore. This causes the hackamore to give a slightly softer and milder signal. The weight of the heel knot allows it to fall quickly when the pressure on the reins is released which in turn releases the pressure of the noseband on the face. This series of events happens smoothly and quickly to reward the horse instantly for a proper response. This is a perfect hackamore to start colts in.
