Re: [RC] Hacamore riders, halters? - superpat

Laurie,
Have you tried using a thin rope halter under the bridle? You will see this
a lot at endurance rides. That way, you can remove the bridle and tie to the
rope halter. It is also good when you dismount to run or lead on the trail.
You can just unclip the reins and clip to the halter in a matter of a few
seconds. It is a bit more of a hassle if you are using a martingale.

Ah, those of you who do your rides in Hacamores (mine is an english or
jumper, mechanical one)how do you tie at a ride? Do you use a halter
under,
or with? Do you use a biothane/halter/bridle?
If this works out on the trail with Rascal, I was wondering how to tie,
feed
him at vet checks , etc.? I am using a, (not the best fitting western
headstall; I happen to own). And need another headstall anyway,
but was wondering what kind to get for the hackamore to connect to, and or
halter.
I own  a biothane halter bridel which the bit clips onto for my snaffle,
but
I'd have two nosebands if I put it on my hack, and his nose doesn't have
that much room!
I saw a simple hack headstall for biothane for less than 35.00 in two
places, but I'd have to get a halter or soemthing to go over, under? Or
get
a halter, hacamore headstall?
I assume you cant't tie with a hacamore, or can you?
Laurie andRascal(who will be ridden tomorrow,it's going to be 50!!:)
