Lol. Way to make yourself look like a complete idiot. Some horses just do not respond well to bits. Of course that is usually to blame on training, but not always on the person that owns the horse at that time. I've got a horse that was great, but the riders before him used VERY rough, hard hands and he just did not respond well in a bit (and I'm not some mean person who keeps trying harder and harder bits) so I tried a bitless bridle and it worked wonderfully for us. I'd hardly consider myself using the "easy route" because it was not my fault that the horse was so hard mouthed. Not EVERY horse belongs in a bit. I can't blame them either. Go shove a piece of metal in your mouth and then have someone jerk on it and THEN come back and tell us how YOU like it.
