We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

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 use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from 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 Herm Sprenger Short Shank Hackamore is stainless steel and is complete with a padded leather noseband and adjustable leather curb strap. The cheek is relatively short, reducing the nose pressure. This 'bit' should sit halfway between where a caveson and drop noseband would lie. 13cm shank. Black or Brown.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've had one before that I loved dearly. It grew legs so I had to order another... If you need a hackmore this is the one you want!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor fit I was very disappointed when I bought this hackamore- my Thoroughbred has an average-size head and it didn't fit him at all. The piece that goes over the nose was too small, so that the bridle cheek pieces were uncomfortably close to his eyes. There wasn't enough room in the straps to punch new holes to make it fit him better, either. The chin strap was too long as well- if it had fit otherwise, I would have had to cut a piece off. The quality seemed fine but the leather was definitely in need of a good oiling.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from SO UGLY I was very disappointed when I got this hackamore! Everyone gushed about the quality of it, so I ordered it, when it arrived, it was RED. Don't even know what the quality of the leather was, as I didn't even open it. Definitely going back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great I love this hackamore, I bought it after my cheap hack broke. this one is much sturdier and the metal feels much more substantial, plus, the leather oils up well. I have a sheepskin nose cover for it. I also bought a different curb chain as I didnt like the leather one it came with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality, looks nice Didn't irritate horses skin, fit just fine, looks classy not cheap. The price could be a bit less but it is a nice quality item. Shipped fast also. Pleased customer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money My horse seems to really like it. He is an Arabian and I had to make the chin strap smaller by adding holes and cutting off the end of the strap. The nose strap fits him fine. I put a sheepskin cover under the chin strap and he seems to like that a lot better. It was difficult to put the chin strap together without instruction - they might want to consider doing that in the future. Overall it fits my horse, with modification, and he moves nicely in it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for! This Hackemore is definitely better than the less expensive one we had to send back because it broke the 1st use. Wish this had a curb chain but that was remedied easily enough. The only real complaint is that it is rubbing/irritating our mare's nose -- will have to pad.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from HS Hackamore I bought this mostly on a whim for my soft-mouthed TB, and he's really liking it so far - he seems very relaxed when I use it. The only thing I'd say is that the curb strap could use a few more holes for horses with narrower faces.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
