Double Rope Hackamore #HV30
Description: The noseband on this Double Rope Hackamore is made of 2 pieces of 3/8 inch nylon rope. 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. This hackamore is made with a browband headstall, fiador and with your choice of hackamore rein (see dropdown).
Rein Choice: You can see the reins available in the hackamore rein category. The rein you choose will be tied to the hackamore before I send it.
How it works: The double rope hackamore pulls over a wider area on the bridge of the nose than the #HV20 Single Rope Hackamore. This causes the hackamore to give a slightly softer and milder signal. 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 is a perfect hackamore to start colts in.
Shown with the #CHR3 Hand Braided Nylon Hackamore Rein. With this rein the price is $284.99.
Chuck Frasier Sidepull #CP40
Description: The noseband on this sidepull is crafted from firm 3/8″ nylon rope, which is specially designed to ensure it lays correctly from the first ride. The headstall is made of single ply 3/4″ tight-fibered harness leather with a 5/8″ throat latch. This sidepull comes with slot conchos, which are the safest and most secure conchos I make. You can see the photos on the left for instructions on slot concho removal and application. The buckles are stainless steel with the leather below the buckles stitched to keep them in place.
How it works:
Since this sidepull is considered a bitless bridle, it is designed for use on the adult horse and is a great tool for when you don’t want to put pressure on the horse’s mouth while maintaining plenty of control. With the design of this sidepull, the stainless steel shanks come against the opposite side of the horses face with a direct rein pull so 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 provides 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 11 & 12 inch lengths from top to bottom (picture at left; see dropdown to order). General guidelines for bosalita length: the 11 inch bosalita will fit a small to medium size muzzle. The 12 inch bosalita is made to fit a larger horse, generally those horses 15.2 hands and over but fit 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 3/8 inch handmade latigo California Style Hanger. The hanger is hand edged, rubbed and waxed.
Mecates: You may buy the bosalita without a mecate or with one of 2 mecate options; the #DMR3 Nylon Mecate available in 2 lengths (22′ in tan or 24′ in brown) or the #DK1 Mane Hair Mecate (see dropdown for choices and prices):
#DMR3 Mecate: This nylon Mecate is made of round 3/8 inch nylon and is available in 22 and 24 feet 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. It has a tassel on one end and a popper on the other. For more information click #DMR3 Round 3/8 inch Nylon Mecate.
#DK1 Mecate: This Horse Mane Hair Mecate is twisted on a horsehair core and is 22 feet long. This mecate has a firm twist, good body and a very soft hand. 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 information click #DK1 3/8 inch 4 strand Horse Mane-Hair Mecate.
I will be happy to tie your mecate to your bosalita when you purchase them together but you may need to adjust the wraps to fit your horse after you receive it.
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.
Soft 4 Plait Loping Hackamore #HV41
Description: This Soft 4 Plait Loping Hackamore comes in 4 colors: tan, our original color, and now blue, pink and purple! You can see photos of the color choices at left and select your favorite in the dropdown below.
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.
The 4 plait noseband is made of 5/16 inch nylon solid braid rope. This hackamore comes with a browband headstall, fiador (tan fiador with the tan hackamore and white fiador with the blue, pink and purple hackamores) and with your choice of hackamore rein (see below).
Rein choices: You can see the rein choices in the hackamore rein category and select in the dropdown. The rein you choose will be tied to the hackamore before I send it.
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.
The tan hackamore is shown with the #CHR1 Hand Braided Grass Hackamore Rein. With this rein the price is $272.99. The pink, blue and purple hackamores are shown with the #CHR3 Hand Braided Nylon Hackamore Rein. With this rein the price is $298.99.
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.
