Re: [RC] Bitless Bridle - Stephanie E Caldwell

You might try a sidepull. My guys had the same reaction to a bitless that Angie's did.

But, a Sidepull is much simpler. The only issues I've ever had with it were rubbing on the nose. I haven't done endurance, but did gallop out alot this summer with my cross country trainer in it and had no trouble. The horse rated as easily in that as his happy mouth french link. (He's really easy to rate!)

I borrowed one and none of mine liked it. It was nothing like a halter
type reaction...more like lots of leverage. They wanted to lift their
nose up to avoid the pressure under their jaw.  The directions tell you
to adjust the noseband really snug...tighter than would be comfortable
for chewing, like it would rub so that sort of turned me off too.

Hi everyone,
I was wondering if anyone has used the Bitless Bridle and if so, what was your opinion of it?
Did you like it? Did your horse like it? Did you feel in control of your horse more or less than a bitted bridle, etc?
The information on bitlessbridle.com is interesting, but I'd rather have feedback not originating from the site that sells it.
Thanks so much,
Jennifer
