Bosalita 3/8 Inch #HU1
$350.00 – $500.00
Description & Choices:
Bosalita size: The rawhide used in this 3/8 Inch Bosalita is precisely hand beveled for a smooth finish. The core is 12 plait and the 7 inch nose button is 20 plait. At 5 inches in width between the hanger buttons this bosalita is available in 10, 11 & 12 inch lengths from top to bottom (picture at left; see dropdown to order). General guidelines for bosalita length: the 10 inch bosalita will fit a horse with a small muzzle, usually those 14.2 hands and under that weigh 900 lbs. or less. The 11 inch bosalita will fit a medium size muzzle and will fit the majority of horses. The 12 inch bosalita is made to fit a larger horse, generally those horses 15.2 hands and over that weigh 1250 lbs. or more, but is dependent on muzzle size. This is a top quality, functional bosalita for your 2 rein horse.
Core: The 3/8th Inch Bosalita is available in soft & hard cores (see dropdown).
Heel Knot: The rawhide heel knot on the Dennis Moreland Bosalita is heavy to give instant release when the pressure on the mecate is released. A special addition to the Dennis Moreland Bosalita is the spacer inside the heel knot, between each side of the core, which gives the mecate enough space to lay correctly. This is a very nice improvement over bosalitas with no spacer.
Hanger: This comes with a 1/2 inch handmade latigo California Style Hanger. The hanger is hand edged, rubbed and waxed.
Mecates: You may buy the bosalita without a mecate for no additional charge or with one of 2 mecate options; the #DMR3 Nylon Mecate available in 2 lengths (22′ in tan or 24′ in brown) or the #DK1 Mane Hair Mecate (see dropdown for choices and prices):
#DMR3 Mecate: This nylon Mecate is made of round 3/8 inch nylon and is available in 22 and 24 feet lengths. On average, the 22 foot mecate is built to ride on horses that are under 15 hands while the 24 foot length is built for horses 15 hands and taller. It has a tassel on one end and a popper on the other. For more information click #DMR3 Round 3/8 inch Nylon Mecate.
#DK1 Mecate: This Horse Mane Hair Mecate is twisted on a horsehair core and is 22 feet long. This mecate has a firm twist, good body and a very soft hand. I have various colors available including sorrels, greys, blacks and whites. Please call for color availability 817-312-5305. If I don’t hear from you, I will choose the color.

I will be happy to tie your mecate to your bosalita when you purchase them together but you may need to adjust the wraps to fit your horse after you receive it.
