Re: Question on S hackamore

Hi, Amber,

Yes, it has a use. Mainly to keep the shanks down and in place. For your
horse, this may not be vital. For my guy, it is all important. That little
piece broke and my 7 yo Arabian gelding discovered that he could throw his
head to flip up the shanks and then do whatever he pleased without regard
for the silly person on his back. :) May sound funny, but he can be
downright scary when he's out of control.

You might want to try wrapping the chain and/or the wire in vetrap to keep
them from tangling.

Good luck. :)
