Head Up! Hunter Koch's Hackamore Hack


Koch’s take: “In transitioning a former working cow horse to the heeling, a horse can over bridle, meaning his chin and head can come back to me when I pull on him. I don’t want my horses or downhill, so I use this hackamore to help keep a horse’s front end elevated. It keeps him from dropping his front end and overly bridled because of his initial training. I need his front end elevated to keep him working on his butt and to keep the saddle horn coming to me, so this hackamore is a great practice bridle for my ex-cow horses.”
