Baby Camel Logo Camel Nose Pegs, Halters & Bosals.
Welcome to the world of camel control. Camels are very smart and this sometimes makes them hard to control. Here you will see different ways from allover the world that are used to control them.

Steel Camel Bosal
The steel bosal bridle (hackamore) may give the most control over handling a camel when riding, but can also do harm if not used by a professional. Never tie a camel up using this device, as you can see the camel also has a rope halter on under it.
Nylon Camel Bosal
The nylon bosal bridle (hackamore) are light in weight and easy on the camel. They do not give as much control over a camel as the steel ones do but are very safe, good for training, and works well on camels that don't require as much control.

Camel Nose Peg
Dromedary camel nose pegs are normally made out of wood or plastic, they give very good control over handling a camel and are used in most parts of the world today. For the camel's protection a breakaway link is used between the nose peg and reins. Camels should not be tied together with the nose peg line.

Camel Nose Peg
Bactrian camel nose pegs are often a forked wood stick sharpened on one end and painfully pushed through the camel's nose. If one of these pulls out, the camel is badly injured. As you can see, this nose peg is part way pulled through and is doing considerable damage.
This type should never be used!

Camel halters
There are basically three different types in use. The Nylon Web Halter, the Rope Halter, and the Chain Halter. Nylon web halters have been known to come apart and break, and they do not give as much control as other types. Rope halters are very strong, lighter and give better control. Camels yawn a lot and a good fitting halter should be loose enough to give them this freedom, like the one below.
Halters should always be removed when not needed.

Camel Chain Halters give that little bit of extra control that someone might need, yet is comfortable to the animal when not being pulled on. However, it really should not be used to tie an animal up, although a camel is certainly less likely to kill itself when tied up by this outfit than a horse would be.




Camel Nose Rings & Jaw Ropes
Camel nose rings and thongs are pierced through the side of the nostril and often pull out leaving big notches in the camel's nose like the one below. Jaw ropes cut into the camel's mouth, camels have weak jawbones that could be broken using a rope this way.
Camel nose rings, nose thongs and jaw ropes should not be used.
