    Here is a thread that has some info about bosals. You cannot use a normal headstall because the loop isn't big enough to hold the bosal.

    Setting up a Bosal

    The mecate reins tie to the end of the bosal. The long, lead rope like end ties up onto the saddle horn. Just be sure to leave enough slack that the horse can move freely, both up and down and side to side. When you are holding the actual loop reins, you hold them with your thumbs. I believe that your pinky and your thumb are the only two fingers that are held under the reins. Your other fingers are held above. You are not supposed to really grip the reins or keep a hold on them like you would with english reins. You just need to hold them with "delicacy" I guess you could say. If you need help with tying the reins to the bosal, you can just google and find the site that explains it best for you.
