    Ok, so I got my bitless bridle in the mail today (it came much faster than I figured) and took it to the stable to try it. I know some people have had bad experiences with these but it was amazing!! I spent like 5 minutes on the ground just bending her head from side to side and asking her to back up to feel the pressure and as soon as I started riding Dahli felt like a totally different horse. She's not usually a tense horse, but she was so relaxed. Even when we trotted and she raised her head up a bit, she never tensed up like she does at times. The canter was why I bought one of these to begin with but she picked up a smooth, collected canter and not a single head toss!!! We only rode for about 20 minutes since she's had 4 weeks off and I didn't want to push her too far but right now I definitely recommend this item!! I'm thankful that I discovered it.

    I had one and liked it. I just recently bought a Nurtural brand No-Bit bridle and like it as well. Very well made and a tad cheaper than Dr Cook's.

    I like the cross under style. It seems you have good control without the severity of shanks. Most horses I have ridden in it have gone very well. There is a learning curve, but most horses that are snaffle trained pick it up quickly and respond well.

    I use mine for trail riding and when friends come over and want to ride. My mare's mouth is very sensitive with her bits, and I want to keep it that way, lol. We have a variety of bits we use for training and show.
