This hackamore has a good feel on a horse and the curb chain hangers are angled out to prevent pinching. It is outstanding for everyone, from trail rider to professional horseman. The shanks amplify the force on the nose, chin and poll in the same way that leverage bit works on the mouth, chin and poll. When the rider takes up on the reins pressure comes to bear. This hack provides a good measure of control without risk of injury to the mouth.
