I'm super excited to say that I ordered my first one, even while on a college budget, from Steve Guitron! (Welcome to Steve Guitron's Custom Rawhide website) It's just a simple working bosal, which is just up my alley, I don't need anything show worthy, just need one that gets the job done! I use a little bosalita under my bridle for my get down, and have just fooled around while riding and finds my mare rides nice with just the bosalita, so that sparked me wanting a bosal for her, and for future colts of course! Those of you who use them, where do I find a nice mecate (in Canada preferably)? I'd love to see pics of your rigs too! I've used a wool mecate before (just on a snaffle) and I'm wondering if a wool or alpaca mecate has a different feel than a horse hair one on a bosal? I'm aware you should use the same diameter mecate as bosal, but if I were to go one size down (5/8's) would it really affect much? I'm going to be making my own hanger as well, and there's so many different ways to make a hanger it makes my head spin!
