This book represents 6 generations and over 165 years of California horsemanship tradition with in my family and a combined experience for both sides of Jeff's family of over 265 years. The book also represents his own experience working with between 300-400 different hackamore horses and people at clinics through out the world every year. This provides a great opportunity to see what really works and does not work with a huge variety of horses over a long period of time.
All this combines to make perhaps the most comprehensive work on the subject of the traditional use of the hackamore currently available.

What it is, what it is not and how it works
Parts and pieces
Shaping, fitting and maintenance
