I'm not a huge fan of bits, and I'd love to get a bitless bridle for my horses in the future. I've found several options, and I know that I'd have to "test run" them with the horse before truly going for them. But I'm not completely certain what are the best kinds, what each is used for, and what are the differences between them and normal bridles.
Here are some kinds that I have found:
Ok... which one of those do you like/don't like?
Which would you suggest for a horse that is going to be ridden both english and western, mainly on trails around cattle?
Are bitless bridles frowned upon in shows?
Do bitless bridles require extra knowledge of how to use them? Or are they used almost the exact same as normal bridles?
