7" cheeks. Very well designed. Medium plus leverage for good control and rate. No knots on the rope to gall the horse’s face. Nose floats when you pull the shanks but will not drop down. Shanks swivel for better flex. It’s tempting to call this a shanked sidepull but it has too much control and rate. Rope nose for more control. Lifetime Guarantee on Reinsman Bits.
Played with a few of the other rope style hackamores over the years. Tried this one and no going back now. It fits all my horses, small to large nosed. Lots of whoa. I thought the movable sides would blunt my cues, yet I found the horses responding better.
