The rein system which goes with a bosal is called a mecate, which is a long rope, traditionally made of horsehair (like this one for sale here) and is tied to the bosal in a specialized manner to adjust the fit of the bosal around the muzzle of the horse. This creates a looped rein and a long free end that can be used for a number of purposes. When a rider is mounted, the free end is coiled and attached to the saddle and when the rider is dismounted, the mecate is used as a lead rope.
