Double Rope Hackamore #HV30
$199.99 – $304.99
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.

Round Rope Hackamore #HV61
Description: The noseband on this #HV61 Hackamore is made of a single piece of 1/4 inch nylon rope. The headstall is made of 5/8 inch latigo with a 1/2 inch bled browband and has a nylon fiador. The hand braided ring knots on the noseband keep the headstall from slipping.
Rein choice: Available with your choice of any rein in the hackamore rein category (order in dropdown). The rein you choose will be tied to the hackamore before I send it.
How it works: The round shape of the noseband allows for an instant and a very consistent signal anywhere on the face. The noseband comes in 2 sizes; 21 inches in circumference for close contact and very quick action and 23 inches in circumference to decrease the speed of the signal very slightly (see dropdown). The latigo headstall is lighter than a harness leather headstall allowing for faster communication than harness leather. This hackamore is a favorite among trainers and is made to be a training hackamore rather than for starting colts.
Hackamore is shown with the #CHR6 Round Nylon Hackamore Rein. Price with this rein is $149.99.
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 1/2 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.

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.

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 1/2 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 10, 11 & 12 inch lengths from top to bottom. Please see the picture at left for size measurement descriptions. 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. These measurements are dependent on individual muzzle size so it’s best to measure your horse.
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, well balanced, completely hand braided #CCR1 Rawhide Romal Reins. These reins are 108 inches in total length and come in your choice of 2 core widths: 3/16 inch and 1/4 inch (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 finishing their training. A long trot across a big pasture teaches the horse to carry the bit correctly without ever having his mouth pulled on. You can adjust the length of the mecate and reins as you ride, if things get fast when you’re sorting a cow or yearling use just the bosalita and mecate. Because the horse is learning to work without pushing on the bit or throwing his head he will more easily be able to work tough cattle or do any other type of work successfully.
This is a top quality, functional set up for your 2 rein horse.
