@bliger that’s not entirely true. I have ridden horses in a hackamore plenty of times and they DO half halt very nicely. My horse has even bolted and bucked, but was very easy to control in the hackamore and I never came close to falling.
Dislike you can’t half halt in hackamore sir if they start to buck and put their head down you are basically gone that happened to me today because I’m training a new horse and they said to use a hackamore I knew I was going to die and then I fell off
It is o.k. I would just want a good ol' bit. I can connect with them and feel what they are thinking. If you have a horse that works well in a bit-less bridle, that is awesome! If you have one that doesn't, I don't think they should receive any hate for it!😊💚
