Hackamore Reinsman by Ed Connell
This book by experienced horseman, Ed Connell, was the first book ever written in order to document the method of training the California reined horse. While most books will tell you how to make a hackamore, this book tells you how they are used. This book describes the methods necessary to make a hackamore horse, from starting colts to finishing a horse in the bridle, according to the standards of the old vaqueros. This is an authentic manual of instruction that will provide more information the methods, traditions, and styles of the California hackamore reinsman.
Spanish Bit with Frog Mouthpiece #B92
Description: This beautiful handmade Spanish bit has 8 1/4 inch loose jaw shanks covered with hand engraved inlaid silver. The frog mouthpiece is 5 inches wide and has a 2 inch high port with a copper cricket. The cricket rolls beautifully and sounds soothing to the horse as well as helping to keep the mouth moist.
How it works: Both the shanks and the port are angled making the action in this bit slower than in a straighter shanked Spanish bit with or without a straighter port. The horse will also be able to hold his head more naturally in this laid over port than in a straight port making this a good bit for the two rein stage of training the bridle horse.

All three books coincide with one another to make a complete collection of valuable and timeless instruction written by the hand of a talented and well-respected horseman.
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.
