Any one ever use a bitless bridle? I was concidering getting one for Dumas because he is so hard to bridle with a bit. I'd appreciate any links too. I'm not very good at internet shopping... :roll: I get distracted easily...lol.. OOooOo Shiney things :P ....attention span of a gnat i guess

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Good luck!! :) :) :) :)

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.

Dr. Cook's bitless bridle is AWESOME! A few horses @ my barn go bitless- they are really nice bridles. :)

Ride more, worry less.

Wow.. thaks guys! 8)

Appy I really like that one from dover.

I don't show so it doesn't matter to me if they are legal or not. ( I don't think they are btw)

Does anyone have any experience with them? It would totally suck if I spent the dough on one and the horse hated it....although he hates the bit anyways so... what the heck right?

How do you think these would work with neck reining?
I have never used a bitless bridle before.
