Rowland Genuine Leather Hackamore English Bridle with Brass Hardware

Description

Rowland Genuine Leather Hackamore English Bridle with Brass Hardware is a type of bitless bridle used to control the horse through pressure on its nose and chin rather than in its mouth. It is particularly beneficial for horses with sensitive mouths, dental issues, or for those in training. Here’s a detailed description:

Components

Headstall: The main strap that goes over the horse’s head, connecting all parts of the bridle. It is designed to be sturdy and supportive.

Browband: A strap that runs across the horse’s forehead, preventing the bridle from slipping back. It is often simple and functional.

Cheekpieces: Straps that run down the sides of the horse’s face, connecting the headstall to the hackamore noseband. These are usually robust to handle the pressure distribution.

Throatlash (Throatlatch): A strap that goes under the horse’s throat, helping to keep the bridle in place.

Noseband: The main component of the hackamore, usually made of rawhide, leather, or synthetic materials. It sits on the horse’s nose and applies pressure when the reins are used. The noseband is often padded for comfort.

Chin Strap or Chain: A strap or chain that runs under the horse’s chin, connected to the noseband and cheekpieces. It helps to provide leverage and control.

Reins: Attached to the noseband or shanks (if present), the reins allow the rider to apply pressure to the horse’s nose and chin. They are typically made of leather or synthetic materials.

Material

Leather Quality: High-quality English bridle leather, vegetable-tanned for durability and suppleness. Synthetic options are also available for easier maintenance.

Finish: The leather is usually dyed in traditional colors such as black or brown, but synthetic materials can come in various colors.

Design Features
