What Is A Horse Bosal?

A bosal is a piece of equipment put on a horse's head for riding. A bosal, when used with a hanger and mecate, is called a hackamore. The three main parts of a hackamore are:

Typically, a bosal is used for training. Although a horse trainer will always have his or her own way of doing things, it is common for an unbroke horse to be started in a snaffle bit, then graduated to a bosal. When the horse is advanced in the bosal, it will often then be ridden in both a bosal and a curb bit, then ultimately ridden in a curb bit alone.

Bosals are commonly made from rawhide braided over a core also made of rawhide. You can sometimes find a bosal with a metal core, but most professionals despise these as being too rigid and wouldn't consider using this type.

Bosals also have a knot at the back, behind a horse's chin. The knot provides weight so that when a rider touches the reins the shift in weight is noticeable to the horse. Bosals come in a wide variety of diameters, with the largest diameters usually used on the greenest (most inexperienced) horses and the smaller diameters on more advanced horses.
