The Stubben Hackamore bit is designed to have an improved influence on the horse due to the special shape of the stainless steel lateral parts. The upper curved fastening slot prevents the leather strap of the bridle being pressed over the edge of the upper jaw towards the eye, which can be painful for the horse. The nose band is also anatomically shaped to ensure a better fit on the bridge of your horse's nose. Made with Stubben's high quality standards, the steel has no rough edges that could hurt your horse's mouth and is made with long durability. It goes through a special process to ensure that the bit holes and link pieces remain intact for longer.
