Why We Love This

Our English Hackamore has 7 1/2" shanks. The English Hackamore has a fleece lined noseband to prevent rubbing. Adjustable curb chain. Please note, in the image, the leather portion of the hackamore has been oiled. When it first arrives, the leather is a light tan color. If you prefer a darker leather, add a coat of oil such as the Hydrophane Leather Dressing or Hydrophane Darkening Oil.

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    English Hackamore is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hackamore for the price I really like this hackamore, especially for the price. It is a little difficult to oil up (to darken it- the leather is really light when it arrives) because of the fleece noseband. I also wish it came with more holes for a larger range of adjustment. I have a standard sized OTTB that normally fits perfectly into a horse sized noseband with holes to spare, but we are already on the tightest holes and I'm going to need to punch more as the leather stretches out more. The curb strap leather pieces stretch out significantly even over the course of the first two weeks and I have had to constantly tighten it...and now need more holes!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what my horse needed I have a new horse that was having problems with both a curb and snaffle bits. This hackamore is very comfortable until I can have his teeth floated.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Product not durable as soon as i took it out of the box and felt it, it felt very poorly made amd the quality wasnt very good and the squeaky is so unbearable you cant move it any type of way to stop the squeaking and it was wayyyyyy too small to fit my quarter horse
    Date published: 2016-03-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective I just got this for my young horse who tends to get strong on trail rides. I just need the leverage to keep her head up and get her to stop. This is the first thing I have found that works. It's great quality for the price and it works wonders!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits nicely on existing bridle I purchased this to use while a sore healed in my horses mouth. We actually have not stopped using it. It fits nicely and he responds very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable for my filly!! Bought this about a month ago ..my filly needed her teeth done..equine dentist & veterinarian could not come for a month. This is a life saver!! Since a bit was too uncomfortable , she is doing great in this hackamore !!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed I bought this because my horse had a surgical procedure on her mouth and I couldn't use a bit. This product worked great! Once she figured out what was happening she actually came to love it. The price was right and worked perfectly so my horse could heal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality for price I bought this for my off the track standardbred who has a very touchy out and hates bits because they are too strong for him and he took greatly to this hackamore. He collects nicely and relaxes his head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stopped Morab from gigging Faith must not like her bit, even though it was a snaffle as she would trot every few steps and toss her head when asked to walk. She might have an issue with her teeth, but the hackamore seems to solve her problem and it turns out, she neck reins!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from hackemore i love it,Gets the job done,iv been riding mu whole life,and i coldent ask for better, thank you to all that had a hand in making this bit for me

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these to train with! I keep buying these, love them. Every time I train a new horse. I buy them their won hackamore. To dark all you need to do is use plain vegetable cooking oil, nothing expensive or fancy and it darkens nicely. They last for a couple of years each. never had a problem and my horses love them. an they are easy on the pocket too!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well - you get what you pay for I bought this hackamore as a last resort after trying sooo many bits for my OTTB (who has a bad habit of bracing on the bit and has discomfort in single joint bits). I do recommend you try this hackamore for at least 5 rides before deciding whether or not it works well for your horse. My OTTB was so used to bracing on the bit for leverage that it took him awhile to understand there was nothing to balance on and canter work was certaining interesting those first few rides. When he finally got the idea he had to carry himself, we have had lovely light rides in the hackamore. He actually listens to my seat and legs, which is so liberating for both of us. I did not love the quality of this hackamore and returned it for the nicer Herm Sprenger version due to quality issues, but if you are just looking for a cheaper alternative, this should work fine. The nose band/chain was almost too small for my large headed TB. The color of the leather is a peachy-cream color, SO MUCH lighter than the oiled version in the picture. I was not able to get it to darken more than 2 shades with regular leather oil and some of the metal parts were already starting to corrode before the first use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price I had to purchase a hackamore when my horse hurt his mouth. This was the perfect product. I showed in it as well. Have been very pleased!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ugly As Sin But Does Its Job What this hackamore is: - Affordable: obviously. - Reliable: I've used it for 3 years, soaped it once, never had a problem. - Effective: It works as a hackamore should. What this hackamore is not: - Attractive: This hackamore is not attractive. The color is somewhere in between light tan and if you soap and oil the heck out if it, it will not darken to a lovely color. It will look awkward. - Quality: The leather is not of good quality. I wouldn't say it would be prone to breaking unless you were doing the Yank & Crank 24/7, but if you are, get another hack. I really like this hackamore though, as it is affordable and effective. I use one on a pleasure horse and one on a Rhinoceros/Draft Cross jumper. While I wouldn't use it at a rated show, I have used it at a local show. I covered up the noseband with a super plush fleece cover and that has done the trick. I have never had a problem with the curb chain rusting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hackamore! I bought this hackamore so I could give my mare a break from her bit. She likes it, and it is a great product at a good price.
    Date published: 2014-06-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse loves this I bought this Hackamore for a horse with teeth issues, and it is the best solution by far. It sits at the bit seat, which appears to be a comfortable, yet very effective solution. Great value.
    Date published: 2014-05-07
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I bought this product about a month ago. I had never tried a hackamore on my horse before and did not want to spend a ton of money if he then hated it. It arrived the next day and he loves it. It is much lighter in color than it shows in the picture but it does darken with oil. No complaints about this product, it is a great starter hackamore!
    Date published: 2014-02-04
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality It's nice to have an affordable option but the quality of the leather was so poor I was afraid to even try it for fear it might break. I read a couple other reviews that said it did in fact break during use. I sent it back the same day. It would be fine for light riding but I wouldn't trust it for much more. Also, they warn you about the color...believe it.
    Date published: 2014-02-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect! This is an unbelievable value. This hackamore fits my 14-3 Quarter Horse perfectly, but then again he does not have a very big head. The chain would be tight on a horse with a larger head. The leather does darken when oiled. I am very pleased with this product. Would have given it a 5 except I think the chain would definitely be too tight on horses with a larger head.
    Date published: 2014-01-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My trainer suggested that we try a hackamore with my mare, as she's very mouthy with every bit we've tried in the past; she'll constantly grind her teeth, play with the bit, and toss her head. She's MUCH happier with a hackamore, but as I ride English sometimes, I wanted a shorter shank than the Western models of hackamore offer. This bit fit the bill. I did need to buy a new, longer curb chain, as the one that came with this bit was simply too small for my ridiculously large-headed mare, even with the front leather pieces extended to the last hole. In fairness, said mare wears a Warmblood sized halter (she has a huge head for a Paint!), so the size is probably perfectly adequate for a normal horse. The leather is MUCH lighter in reality than it is in the picture on the website, but the light color of the leather doesn't really bother me. It did darken a bit with some oil, but as we don't compete, matching tack really isn't a priority. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this bit. My horse is sooooo much happier in a hackamore, and this bit suits my needs and budget.
    Date published: 2013-07-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works for my horse This is working well for my horse. Just concerned that we are on the last adjustment on the nose band and had to punch holes to lengthen the curb chain. He's not a big horse and his head isn't larger than normal. I don't really care about the light color of the leather that other reviewers were worried about. We don't do anything that requires matching tack.... I'd like to have enough leather on both nose and chin that I don't need to worry about the short end coming loose if he rubs against something....

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from hackamore worked great until it broke on the second use. horse took off.
    Date published: 2013-03-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value I purchased this hackamore as my new horse was ridden exclusively in a hackamore for the last 4yrs and thought I would try it until transitioning to something else more gentle. He has a short/wide head making the curb strap too tight to allow for proper placement of the hackamore on his nose. I will need to change it out for a longer curb strap. That being said, if you are wanting a mechanical hackamore, this one provides decent quality for an affordable price and I it completely met my expectations
    Date published: 2013-02-22
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hackamore especially for te price! Decent quality, no sharp edges like some of the other reviewers claimed, but the color of the leather is awfully light and doesn't darken with oil. I plan to cover with a fleece noseband so it's not a big deal but it would be nice if I could darken it to match my bridle.
    Date published: 2013-02-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice piece of equipment like this hackamore. good for the price.. leather is good, hardware is good. gave our old one to a friend and just replaced it.
    Date published: 2013-01-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish it was daker Everything would be perfect if it came darker. I've already oiled it twice with hydrophane and it's still very light (but I knew this would be my issue as soon as I bought it). Otherwise wonderful hackamore. Will have to buy a new one to show in but worth it for the experiment! My new jumper prospect loved it. REALLY like the short shanks. Will probably replace the curb chain with leather because he's sensitive but he rides great in it!
    Date published: 2012-11-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price I bought this for one of my jumpers who we wanted to try it on. It is a great hackamore to start with because it gives you pleanty of woah but isnt as harsh as the more expensive ones. Good quality parts for the price and if you keep it clean it looks show ready for a long time.
