Kayty and Smrobs;
You have raised valid points.
I posted this to show the incorrect usage of bitless and found that this particular bridle was redesigned to add more nose pressure. In examining bitless videos on the Internet, all I see is excessive rein pressure which "does" cause such pressure to the nose.
I did not change my tune. In fact, I never said anything other than GP could be done bitless. The point of posting the video is to show the extreme pressure upon the nose..............!!!! Its wrong.......!!!!
Also, to see if anyone could see the difference in how this horse's front end is moving compared to bitted. There are some small improvements over a bitted horse...
A rider who stays out
of the horse's bitted mouth can achieve a great deal, just where are these riders in GP?
I am not arguing bitted v. Bitless, I am posting to show that I am anti-incorrect riding either way.
I do not ride in this manner and there is very light contact on the nose because my reins do not apply continuous pressure to the jaws.....
I ride with extreme light contact and with a touch and let go rhythm so there is not constant pulling pressure in the rein contact.
