    Yeah, that's pretty much all I do in it. Lacey was still learning how to neckrein when I first put her in it and it seems like something about the way it moves on her face or something really helped her completely figure it out.

    I have used Bosals in the past and like them a lot. I neck rein with them.

    I've been riding my horse with a rope halter and lead--similar to the Parelli's rope hackamore setup. Because my gelding has been taught to respect the halter from groundwork lessons, he responds to the halter just as he would to a bit when I'm riding.

    I ride bitless because my horse is inbetween bridle sizes, making finding a nice correctly fitting headstall or bridle an issue.

    I use a Light Rider bridle on my horse. It's like a modified side-pull, is simple and effective, gives clear signals and gives control without being harsh (meaning it's only as harsh as your hands are, there is no leverage it works solely on the nose). The only time when I felt I didn't have the control I would have liked was when I was galloping my horse up the hill, but then I get the same response in a bit, we just need to work on our transitions.
    If you're going to go bitless I really like this bridle, over Dr. Cook/ Nurtural cross-under types.
