Grass Hackamore with Reins #HV10
Description: The Grass Hackamore with Reins is made entirely of one-piece of hand-braided 1/2 inch grass rope. The nose button is covered in hand-braided rawhide and the grass rope is spliced wide at the bottom to give more sidepull action. The hackamore has a 3/4 inch leather headstall with double and stitched browband and a 1/4 inch nylon fiador.
How it works: This hackamore gives a little bit stronger signal on the nose, because of the both the texture and the firmness of the braided rawhide, than a soft rope hackamore. This makes it a particularly good hackamore for loping horses that want to be a little strong in a soft rope hackamore. It’s also great to ride colts with because the reins are spliced widely on the base of the noseband to give more lateral direction when a rein is pulled. It can be used for all types of riding on any horse that works well with a fairly mild signal on its nose.
Single Rope Hackamore with Rawhide Nose #HV21
Description: This is a beautiful hackamore that fits correctly. The nose button (noseband) 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 nose button 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
The hackamore is shown with #CHR3 Hand Braided Nylon Hackamore Rein. The price with this rein is $344.99.
Hard 4 Plait Hackamore #HV51
Description: The noseband on this Hard 4 Plait Hackamore is made of 3/16 inch 4 plait twisted nylon rope. At 5 inches in width between the cheeks this hackamore is 11 inches in length from top to bottom. If you need a larger or smaller hackamore please give me a call at 817-312-5305 and I’ll make the size you need. Click here to visit my blog to see how to measure your horse for a hackamore. The hackamore comes with a harness leather browband headstall, fiador and with your choice of hackamore rein.
Rein choice: You can see the reins available in the hackamore rein category and select your rein in the dropdown. The rein you choose will be tied to the hackamore before I send it.
How it works: This hackamore gives the strongest signal from the pull on the rein of all the hackamores made at Dennis Moreland Tack. The heel knot gives you instant release when the rein pressure is released thereby rewarding the horse instantly for a proper response. I do not recommended this hackamore for riding or training colts but it can be a very good hackamore for those horses that are not very sensitive to the pull.

Starting Bosal #HU5
Description & choices: This bosal is designed for use as a starting bosal on a horse that is transitioning from the snaffle. The soft nylon cord nose button is easy on the sensitive noses of young horses and the balance in this bosal allows signals to be given quickly and accurately. The weight of the heel knot allows for instant release of the pressure on the nose when the pull on the mecate is released.
Bosal size: This Bosal is made of 7/16 inch nylon rope. The 7 inch nose button is braided of soft nylon (parachute) cord. 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 7/16 inch nylon rope is tied to form the heel knot and braided over with parachute cord. The heel knots on all Dennis Moreland Bosals are heavy to give instant release when the pressure on the mecate is released.
Hanger/Headstalls: This bosal comes with a handmade 3/8 inch Latigo California Style Hanger. You may also order this bosal with a 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. See picture at left.
Mecates: You may buy the bosal without a mecate for no additional charge or with one of 3 mecate options: the #DMR5 Nylon Mecate, 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’s available in 22 and 24 foot lengths. A general rule of thumb is the 22 foot mecate is built to ride on horses that are under 15 hands and the 24 foot length is built for horses 15 hands and over but ultimately it’s your personal preference. For more info click #DMR5 Round 5/8 inch Nylon Mecate.
#DK3 and #DK5 Mecates: These 6 strand Horse Mane Hair Mecates are firmly twisted by an expert twister around horsehair cores and are 22 feet long. The 1/2 inch #DK3 and the 5/8 inch #DK5 have good body and yet a very soft hand. They are designed to meet the requirements of refined feel for even the most discriminating hackamore reinsman. 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 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.
