Re: [RC] [RC] Bits - for those of you who love your horse, read. - Catherine Pritchett

I don't think the problems with the bitless bridle are a matter of severity but rather a matter of the horse becoming so confused by the conflicting pressures exerted by this briddle, especially when asking for a turn, that the horses simply panic. I can ride my horse with a string and no bit or with a double bridle with out incident, but the bitless bridle had him so confused that for the first time ever, he became uncontrollable. When I got off, he just looked at me with that look of "what the hell was that????"

It may simply be a matter of retraining a horse in how to react to pressure, but I don't really see why you would bother.
