Bosal 1 Inch #HU4
$250.00 – $599.00
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. The nose button is made of hand braided rawhide and is 7 inches in length. At 5 inches in width between the hanger buttons this bosal is 11 inches long from top to bottom. 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. This bosal has a spacer inside the heel knot, between the cores, which gives the mecate space to lay correctly. This is a very nice improvement over bosals with no spacer.
Hanger/Headstalls: This bosal comes with a handmade 3/8 inch Latigo California Style Hanger. 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). The hanger and the headstalls are hand edged, rubbed, waxed (latigo) or oiled with Neatsfoot Oil and waxed (harness leather). The fiadors are made of 1/4 inch tan solid braid nylon rope.
Mecates: You may buy the bosal without a mecate for no additional charge or with one of 3 mecate options; the #DMR5 Nylon Mecate, or the #DK3 or #DK5 Mane Hair Mecates (see dropdown for choices and prices):
#DMR5 Mecate: The #DMR5 mecate is made of round 5/8 inch brown braid on braid nylon rope. It has a tassel at one end and a 5/8 inch leather popper at the other end. It is available in 22 and 24 foot 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. For more info click #DMR5 Round 5/8 inch Nylon Mecate.
#DK3 and #DK5 Mecates: These Mecates are made of six strands of horse mane-hair. They have been firmly twisted by hand on a horse hair core to 1/2 inch (#DK3) or 5/8 inch (#DK5). They will meet the requirements of refined feel for even the most discriminating reinsman. Either mecate is 22 feet long. There are 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. For more info click #DK3 1/2 inch 6 strand Horse Mane Hair Mecate or #DK5 5/8 inch 6 strand Horse Mane Hair Mecate. I will be happy to tie your mecate to your bosal when you purchase them together but you may need to adjust the wraps to fit your horse after you receive it.
