Ahh, by horse shoves his head into his bridle with a bit and opens his mouth
ready to take it.

I have no problem with any one riding with what ever equipment they will
have control over their horse during the ride. Bit, bitless etc. But I DO
have a problem with riders who think they are being "kind" by having some
bridle that has minimal control, and then riding all day hanging on to that
horses head for 25 or more miles, causing not only a risk of an accident
with other riders, but also making sores on the horse from having to pull so
hard against them all day on the reins.

I also have problem with those who say "bits are cruel".....  Nope, the
hands on the ends of the reins are cruel.  Any bridle can cause pain used
