Welcome to the forum!
Anything will hurt your horse if used improperly. The trick is to learn how to use your tack. There are many people who use and like a bitless bridle but, personally, I use bits and I've learned to have soft hands.
If your horse goes well in a hackamore, learn to use it and don't think more about it.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
