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.

How it works: This hackamore is perfect for loping and is my best selling loping hackamore. The 4 plait noseband has slightly more feel than my 3 plait hackamore but is still very soft on the horse’s nose. It’s comfortable on a horse and great for warming up in the show pen. It can help stressed or tense horses relax before being shown.

Bosal 3/4 Inch #HU3
Description & choices:
Rawhide or Kangaroo: This hackamore is available in 4 patterns: all rawhide, all kangaroo, rawhide body with kangaroo nose button and heel knot or kangaroo body with rawhide nose button and heel knot. Choose which pattern you’d like in the dropdown.
Bosal size: This 3/4 Inch Bosal is hand braided of rawhide and/or kangaroo, which has been hand beveled for a smooth finish. 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.
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 with 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 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.
Shown with the California Hanger and with the #DK3 1/2 inch 6 strand Horse Mane Hair Mecate. In the picture showing bosal measurements they are shown on the #HU1 Bosalita.
Description: The noseband on the Sidepull #CP38 is made of 3/8 inch firm nylon rope specially designed to lay correctly from the first ride. The headstall is made of single ply, 3/4 inch, dense, tight-fibered harness leather and has a 5/8 inch throat latch. The leather has been edged, hand-rubbed, oiled with Neatsfoot Oil and hand-rubbed again. The buckles and rings are all stainless steel.
Reins: The Sidepull is available with or without reins. The 3 most popular choices used with my Sidepull are the #ASR6 DM Harness Leather Split Reins, #BLL6 Latigo on Latigo 3/4″ Reins (shown) and the #ASR3 XX Harness Leather Split Reins. The #ASR6 and #BLL6 are both shorter reins, 6 1/2 to 7 feet, and will work well on the smaller colt or horse. At 7 to 7 1/2 feet, the #ASR3 is a good choice for the bigger colt or horse (generally 15 to 16 hands). Choose between these 3 reins in the dropdown. Many of the other reins I make can be used on this Sidepull. If you don’t see what you need here visit the rein category to purchase your choice of reins separately.
How it works: Sidepulls are a good piece of equipment to use for starting colts, or to transition colts to from a soft rope hackamore. Using a sidepull is a nice way to teach young horses to move through turns with their noses first without putting any pressure on their delicate mouths. Once the colt is turning well with direct pressure from the sidepull a trainer will move to the snaffle, hackamore or bosal.
Sidepull is shown with the #BLL6 Latigo on Latigo 3/4 inch Snaffle Bit Reins. With this rein the price is $302.99.
2 Rein Outfit #HU7
The 2 Rein Outfit is made of the:
Bosalita: The Bosalita is made of hand braided rawhide on your choice of a soft or hard core (see dropdown) and comes with an 3/8 inch handmade latigo California Style Hanger. The nose button is 7 inches in length. At 5 inches in width between the hanger buttons this bosalita is available in 11 & 12 inch lengths from top to bottom. Please see the picture at left for size measurement descriptions. General guidelines for bosalita length: the 11 inch bosalita will fit a small to medium size muzzle and the 12 inch bosalita will fit a larger horse, generally those horses 15.2 hands and over that weigh 1250 lbs. or more.
Mecate: This #DK1 3/8 inch 4 strand Horse Mane-Hair Mecate has a firm twist, good body and a very soft hand. It is twisted on a horsehair core and is 22 feet in length. 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.
Bridle: The bridle is made up of the #HS53 Two Buckle Slide Ear Headstall with Rawhide with slot conchos, the #A4 Steel C Shank Bit with Silver with the #4F mouthpiece with roller (this bit is NRCHA legal), the #CU21 Double Buckle Leather Curb (also NRCHA legal) and the beautiful hand-braided #CCR1 Rawhide Romal Reins. These reins are 108 inches in length and are braided on a 1/4 inch core (see dropdown).
How it works: The 2 rein is used when you’re taking your young horses from the hackamore to the bit. It helps them keep a light mouth while you’re advancing their training. Because you’re using the bosalita and mecate the majority of the time in the beginning of the 2 Rein training process, your horse learns to carry the bit correctly without ever having his mouth pulled on. You can adjust the length of the mecate and reins as training progresses and transfer to predominantly romal use as your horse advances. By using the 2 Rein, your horse learns to work without pushing on the bit or throwing its head. It will more easily be able to work tough cattle or do any other type of work successfully as a bridle horse.
This is a top quality, functional set up for your 2 rein horse.
