Nylon Hackamore with Reins #HV11
Description: The #HV11 Nylon Hackamore with Reins is made entirely of one-piece of hand-braided 1/2 inch nylon rope. The nose button is covered in hand-braided rawhide. The rope is spliced wide at the bottom of the nose to give sidepull action. The inside circumference of the noseband is 21 inches. The hackamore has a 3/4 inch leather headstall with double and stitched browband and a 1/4 inch nylon fiador. The braided nylon reins have amazing feel, just the right weight and size. They get even better with age! This hackamore is especially good to ride your colts or lope your show horses in. Also fabulous for western dressage training.
Soft 3 Plait Loping Hackamore #HV40

At 5 inches in width between the cheeks this hackamore is 10 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. This hackamore comes with a browband headstall, fiador and with your choice of hackamore rein (see below).
Rein choice: You can see the rein choices in the hackamore rein category and choose your rein in the dropdown. The rein you choose will be tied to the hackamore before I send it.
How it works: This hackamore is really comfortable for the horse. It lays flat on the nose and is very soft. It’s designed to be used for warming up in the warm up arena before entering the show pen and it really allows a horse to relax. This hackamore is the mildest of all the hackamores I make and gives slightly less signal than the #HV41 Soft 4 Plait Loping Hackamore.

Bridle with Eggbutt & Harness Leather Reins #HT1
This Bridle w/ Eggbutt & Harness Leather Reins #HT1 is made up of:
• Headstall: 3/4 Inch Browband Headstall #HS24. This headstall is made of heavy single ply harness leather, 3/4 inches wide. The leather has been hand-edged, hand-rubbed, oiled with Neatsfoot Oil and hand-rubbed again. The browband is doubled and stitched which helps give this headstall a very eye-catching appearance. The throatlatch is made of 5/8 inch single ply leather. All the buckles are beveled stainless steel with leather loop keepers. The leather beneath the buckles is hand sewn together to prevent the buckles from slipping which helps make this headstall so nice to adjust to fit different horses. This bridle is available in 3 headstall sizes (see dropdown). The small horse size has a 28 inch crown and is designed to fit horses under 14 1/2 hands. The average horse size has a 33 inch crown to fit horses approximately 14 1/2 to 15 1/2 hands. The large horse size comes with a 36 inch crown and is designed to fit horses over 15 1/2 hands.
• Bit: Eggbutt Snaffle #18. The eggbutt snaffle mouthpiece has a slight bow which tends to be easier on the mouth while at the same time giving a slightly more direct signal than the ring snaffle. The mouthpiece is inlaid with copper to promote salivation.
• Curb: Rawhide Ball Curb #CU40. This Rawhide Ball Curb is made of 1/2 inch hand-edged latigo and is complimented with handbraided rawhide balls and loops. This curb is AQHA and NRCHA legal on a snaffle.

Single Rope Hackamore #HV20
Description: The noseband on this single rope hackamore is made of 3/8 inch nylon. The hackamore is 5 inches wide between the cheeks and 10 1/2 inches long from top to bottom. I can make other sizes so please call 817-312-5305 to special order another size.
The headstall is made of harness leather and the browband is doubled and stitched. It comes with a nylon fiador.
Rein choice: This Single Rope hackamore comes with your choice of rein in the hackamore rein category (see dropdown to order). The rein you choose will be tied to the hackamore before its sent.
How it works: The weight of the heel knot allows it to fall quickly when the pressure on the rein is released. This releases the pressure of the noseband on the face. The smooth and quick release rewards your horse for a proper response. This is a great hackamore for starting your colts, trail riding and loping.

This is a very high quality bosal that will fit properly and last through years of training and riding. The bosal core is 12 plait. The 20 plait bosal nose button is 7 inches in length. At 5 inches in width between the hanger buttons this bosal is available in 10, 11 & 12 inch lengths from top to bottom (measurements pictured at left; see dropdown to order). General guidelines for bosal length: the 10 inch bosal will fit a horse with a small muzzle, usually those 14.2 hands and under that weigh 900 lbs. or less. The 11 inch bosal will fit a medium size muzzle and will fit the majority of horses. The 12 inch bosal 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.
Core: This 3/4 Inch Bosal is available in soft & hard cores (see dropdown).
Heel Knot: The heel knots on all Dennis Moreland Bosals are heavy to give instant release when the pressure on the mecate is released. A special addition to all Dennis Moreland Bosals is the 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: This bosal comes with a handmade 3/8 inch Latigo California Style Hanger. The hanger is hand edged, rubbed and waxed.
