Some of these letters and articles date back to the 1950s, and include further discussion on topics such as reining, the A-Fork saddle, starting horses Vaquero style, ground-pulling with a hackamore, teaching the stop and turn, along with many more.
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 good for everything from trail or pleasure riding to warming up in the show pen. A great tool to help stressed or tense horses relax.
The tan hackamore is shown with the #CHR1 Hand Braided Grass Hackamore Rein. With this rein the price is $259.99. The pink, blue and purple hackamores are shown with the #CHR3 Hand Braided Nylon Hackamore Rein. With this rein the price is $284.99.
