Bosal 3/4 Inch Horse Hair #HU6
Description & choices:
Bosal size: This 3/4 Inch Bosal is handmade of tightly twisted horse tail hair. The tail hair is coarse which makes this a very good piece of equipment to use intermittently on horses that are leaning on a rawhide bosal to back them off. At 5 inches in width between the hanger buttons this bosal is 11 inches in length from top to bottom. See bosal measurement guide to the left.
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: The Horse Mane Hair Mecates are twisted around horsehair cores and are 22 feet long. The #DK3 is 1/2 inch in diameter and the #DK5 is 5/8 inch in diameter. These mecates, made by an expert twister, have a firm twist, good body, very soft hand and are designed to meet the requirements of refined feel for even the most discriminating hackamore reinsman. The 6 strands are the ultimate horse hair rope. 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. For more info click #DK3 1/2 inch 6 strand 100X Horse Mane Hair Mecate or #DK5 5/8 inch 6 strand 100X 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. Shown with California Style Hanger & #DMR5 Mecate on the horse. In the picture showing bosal measurements they are shown on the #HU1 Bosalita.
