RE: [RC] [RC] Rascal and the Hackamore - Laurie Durgin

Noseband 1.5 inches above the corners of his mouth? (Jumping hack. so it has these flat plates like shanks , and a leather fleece lined noseband. Shanks parralell his mouth and end about where his mouth does(so when he grazed with it, they almost or barely touched the ground). I put the noseband where you'd normally put a noseband, and the chin strap in his groove.(like I would for a pelham).
Never actually seen one in a picture . May have to peruse ridecamp pictures for a "hack" picture. . . . .

You want that noseband so it sits about 1.5" from the corner of his mouth.
Does that make sence?
