Best bitless bridle for Kodak?
I want to try a bitless bridle on Kodak. Last summer, when I had a trainer come in and work on her desensitizing, she used one, and Kodak was ok with it. However, because we were still working on a lot of things and I was very nervous about her spooking, I was uncomfortable riding her without a bit. I know, a bitless bridle can give just as much control as a bit, but for my own peace of mind, I felt better knowing I had a bit in her mouth.
Since then, we have come a long way. I'm ready to try bitless again. Why, you ask? Well, when I ride her, she sticks her neck out like she's trying to push on the bit. She also gets upset when I pull back, tossing her head (though this has improved a lot recently). Her teeth are fine, she will accept the bit, but since she yields to pressure like a pro, it may not be necessary. She does not bolt or try to run out of control, but she does spook sometimes. Again, this is much improved since we first got her so she will now mostly spook in place.
I looked at some bitless bridles and since I can't get them locally, would like to know which one you would recommend. I know some can be harsh and would like to avoid those, but would still like to have some pressure for control. We will mainly be trail riding.
