    Default Where to find Hackamore (ie like Hickstead's)

    I have been looking for a while to find the bigger style hackamore with the longer shanks and a sturdy construction, and so far no luck. I am looking for a hackamore to combine with a snaffle, as I think it might be the right combo for one of my horses. I am an experience rider, no lectures on bit usage por favor. Just looking for where one can find something like that.

    Hickstead example


    Or Shutterfly...

    Thanks for any help!

    I got some of my funkier bits and hackamore setups from Bevals and one from Kocher Tack - Kocher doesn't have a website, but if you call them, they're very helpful.

    Thanks for the replies so far. I am not looking for a hackabit. I am looking for a hackamore that can be used with or without a snaffle as well. I left a message for Kocher Tack, and also sent a message to them on FB. Hope they have what I need! Any other ideas welcomed...

    I got a long shank hackamore at Dover. If you google search long shank hackamore you will get a lot of results. Some western but it's the same purpose

    Herm Sprenger makes a long shank hackamore that they call a Kombi, although it is just the hackamore itself. Dover and Smart Pak both carry it.

    I don't think that you will ever find a bit exactly like Hicksteads, I remember Eric saying that it was designed specifically for Hickstead (I think it might have been put together by Juergen, but I can't really remember).

    I have the hackamore in the first picture and I got mine at Dover Saddlery. It was around $90. Not sure where you would get the one in the second picture although it looks a little more like a mechanical hackamore except for the nose band. Here are a couple pictures of my mare in hers.

    Here is a picture of her with her schooling bridle with the similar hackamore (less expensive version with fleece lined nose band) http://www.flickr.com/photos/simbalism/8286638723/
