Single Rope Hackamore with Rawhide Nose #HV21
Description: This is a beautiful hackamore that fits correctly. This hackamore has a nose button covered in hand braided rawhide. The rawhide is beveled by hand so it’s smooth against your horses face. The noseband is 5 inches wide between the cheeks and 10 1/2 inches long.
The headstall on this hackamore is made of single ply harness leather. The brow band is doubled and stitched leather. The headstall adjustment buckles are made of stainless steel. This hackamore comes with a nylon fiador. The fiador is very easy to tie 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.
How it works: Besides being very eye-catching the rawhide helps to give this hackamore a little stronger signal and will keep the hackamore rounded across the nose. The weight of the heel knot gives you very smooth and quick release when the rein pressure is released thereby rewarding the horse instantly for a proper response. This is a very good hackamore for starting colts, moving up from a rope hackamore when a stronger signal is needed 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.

Bosal 1 Inch #HU4
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 1/2 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.

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 price does not include reins. Any rein I make can be used on this sidepull and your choice of reins can be purchased separately in the rein category. I’ve also listed the 3 most common choices below in the dropdown if you’d like to purchase reins here. The #ASR6 DM Harness Leather Split Reins and #BLL6 Latigo on Latigo 3/4″ Reins (shown) are both shorter reins, 6 1/2 to 7 feet, and will work well on the smaller colt or horse. The #ASR3 XX Harness Leather Split Reins, at 7 to 7 1/2 feet, is a good choice for the bigger colt or horse (generally 15 to 16 hands).
How it works: Sidepulls are a good piece of equipment to use for starting colts. 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 $289.98.
Chuck Frazier Sidepull #CP40
-Noseband-firm 3/8″ nylon, lays correctly from the first ride.
-Headstall-single ply 3/4″ tight-fibered harness leather with a 5/8″ throat latch.
-Slot Conchos-the safest most secure headstall concho I make.
see guidelines at left for slot concho removal and application.
-Buckles-stainless steel with the leather below the buckles stitched to keep them in place.
How it works:
-Designed for use on the adult horse: this is a great tool when you want to get out of the horse’s mouth while maintaining plenty of control.
-Because the stainless steel shanks come against the opposite side of the horses face with a direct rein pull the horse starts his turns without leaning.
-Put your leg on him once the turn is started to teach him to complete the turn without leaning.
-The noseband in combination with the dog chain curb gives a strong signal to stop.

Bosalita 3/8 Inch #HU1
Description & Choices:
Bosalita size: The rawhide used in this 3/8 Inch Bosalita is precisely hand beveled for a smooth finish. The core is 12 plait and the 7 inch nose button is 20 plait. At 5 inches in width between the hanger buttons this bosalita is available in 10, 11 & 12 inch lengths from top to bottom (picture at left; see dropdown to order). General guidelines for bosalita length: the 10 inch bosalita will fit a horse with a small muzzle, usually those 14.2 hands and under that weigh 900 lbs. or less. The 11 inch bosalita will fit a medium size muzzle and will fit the majority of horses. The 12 inch bosalita 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. This is a top quality, functional bosalita for your 2 rein horse.
Core: The 3/8th Inch Bosalita is available in soft & hard cores (see dropdown).
Heel Knot: The rawhide heel knot on the Dennis Moreland Bosalita is heavy to give instant release when the pressure on the mecate is released. A special addition to the Dennis Moreland Bosalita is the spacer inside the heel knot, between each side of the core, which gives the mecate enough space to lay correctly. This is a very nice improvement over bosalitas with no spacer.
Hanger: This comes with a 1/2 inch handmade latigo California Style Hanger. The hanger is hand edged, rubbed and waxed.
Mecates: You may buy the bosalita without a mecate for no additional charge or with one of 2 mecate options; the #DMR3 Nylon Mecate available in 2 lengths or the #DK1 Mane Hair Mecate (see dropdown for choices and prices):

Double Rope Hackamore with Rawhide Nose #HV31
Description: The Double Rope Hackamore with Rawhide Nose #HV31 is made of 2 pieces of 3/8 inch nylon rope covered in beautiful hand braided rawhide. At 5 inches in width between the cheeks this hackamore is 12 inches in length from top to bottom. I can make additional sizes but you will need to call to order: 817-312-5305. The headstall is made of harness leather with a doubled and stitched browband and nylon fiador.
Rein Choice: This hackamore comes with your choice of reins (see dropdown) which can be seen in the hackamore rein category.
How it works: Because of the addition of the rawhide, this Double Rope Hackamore with Rawhide Nose has more weight than it’s sister #HV30 Single Rope Hackamore. This extra weight combined with the feel of the braided rawhide can help the horse learn to carry the hackamore resulting in a more correct head carriage. Your horse will not want to lean or push through this nosepiece which will help to prevent elevation of the head. The weight also allows very quick but smooth release of pressure on the horses nose when it gives to the pull of the reins. The weight of the heel knot allows it to fall quickly when the pressure on the reins is released which in turn releases the pressure of the noseband on the face. This series of events happens smoothly and quickly to reward the horse instantly for a proper response. This hackamore is especially good for training green horses and is a great hackamore for loping.
