Side Pull Headstalls, How and Why.......

Side Pull Headstalls are used as pictured,
without a bit, and are becoming very
popular in the training arena and for the
experienced trail horse and rider.

Many trainers have found the side pull
headstall great for horses who do not
except a bit very well and are fussy
and tense and unable to relax and learn….

It is also excellent for horses that have been
injured in their mouth or sensitive due to
harsh training conditions.

The side pull is fast becoming the choice
in early stages of ground driving and teaching
the basics of turning and stopping.

A Quality leather side pull headstall or bridle
as you see pictured, is designed for the reins
to connect to the rings on each side of the
horses cheeks allowing the rider to communicate
very clearly left and right…….

Different nosebands are available depending on
how much pressure you want to excerpt on their
nose. The single lariat rope nose gives the most
in a narrow area across the nose. The double
rope spreads the pressure out. The flat leather
nose gives the least amount of pressure for the
more trained and experienced horse…..

Trainers in the natural horsemanship arenas
have been using different types of side pull
headstalls for a long time…….

Cool write up on side pulls. My husband really likes them and bosals too. Both work well for horse's that have suffered some mouth abuse in the past and it really helps them get over the fear of the bit.
