RE: going bitless

Diana Thompson has designed a real nice sidepull that Gail Hought
manufacturers.  See Hought Endurance Tack website on the Endurance
Net home page or my previous post on homeopathics/Rescue Remedy/
on Diana's website.

I had a local saddler make me a sidepull.  He just made the noseband
with 2 rings
on each side and I snap it to the halter.  I brought him a lariat to use
for the
noseband.  I did find however that I have to wrap the noseband or it
will give my
gelding a rub.  Even made a bump on his nose once and he wasn't even
pulling on
me (or vice versa).  But a halter fuzzy cured that.  Vet wrap would too
but I had
a fuzzy handy.  So you may try something like that if you have someone
close; a
good way to try it until you see if you like it.
