Using a hackamore on your horse is a great way to communicate with him. It's most known for its bitless headgear and for incredible stopping power. These mechanical hackamores work on the nose but still use shanks like a regular bit.

A mechanical hackamore is made up of a noseband which is often leather, a curb chain, and metal shanks that the reins are attached to. Sometimes it is referred to as a bitless bridle. Many use it because it allows the horse to eat and drink easily without having to take off the headgear and is often used for its powerful stopping power.
