The Stubben Steeltec Padded Leather Hackamore features a wide, soft, padded leather noseband, which means lots of surface area for greater comfort for your horse or pony. The Stubben streamlined noseband adjustment system uses hook-studs instead of bulky buckles, plus there's an adjustable leather chinstrap (no chain, for milder pressure).
Stubben spent a lot of time making sure they got this hackamore "just right." The anatomically shaped noseband follows the contour of your horse's face, the stainless steel shanks are the perfect length to give you just enough control, and the arched bridle attachment cheek slots are specially designed not just to be attractive, but to give more lateral control than other hackamores. They also ensure that the cheek straps on your bridle can't slide over your horse's eyes (a common problem when using hackamores).
This type of hackamore (also known as a German, English, or Mechanical Hackamore) works by using leverage to apply pressure to the horse's nose and chin when the reins are tightened. The Stubben Steeltech Padded Leather Hackamore Bit is legal in the Jumper ring for those horses that prefer a hackamore over a bit. Or use it on those days when you need to go bitless, whether it's because of a mouth injury, or it's just time for a little relaxation.
The Stubben Steeltec Padded Leather Hackamore is available in one size (very adjustable - should fit most horses). Colors: Ebony (dark brown), Havana (reddish brown), Tobac (light brown), Black.
