I love riding in bitless bridles!!! It just gives the horse a chance to CHILL !!!!! My mums friends hunter [ which I broke and trained- though only 13 ] . Once abby the hunter went back to her owner her owner gave her the habit of head shaking ! There was no reason for it ! We tried her in a bitless bridle and she loves it and doesnt head shake anymore .
For ridergirl23 -
Bitless bridles apply pressure to the nose - but if you have a horse that runs away from you / runs through pressure or runs through their neck then its not ideal ! But they are GREAT for strong horses , it worked for my connemara - we had some bad times with it but now I can hunt him in a snaffle !!!
