I tried one on Denny. He absolutely hated it.
I rode him in his regular bit first, he was working beautifully in it. I introduced the Nurtural bridle, and spent some time on the ground getting him to flex and bend to the new sensation. I got on him, and he was horrid! NEVER before or since has he ever acted like that, he absolutely hated it. I put his bit back in and he was good as gold again.
I find that some horses love it, and others hate it, and there's not much grey area in between. Their sales video is crap, it showcases lame horses and the camera cuts out a few times before a horse is about to buck, but you can tell.
I have a problem with their sales reps too. I work at a tack store that used to carry this bitless bridle, and their rep was going to meet one of our customers to fit her horse for a bridle. He sold her one out of the back of his truck and pocketed the money for himself. Sleezy.
I personally refuse to deal with them.
