Question light rider bridle

LightRider Bridle - English - Natural Horse World

Ok. So im making the english switch and i've been researching bitless options like crazy. Its my aunts horse and she really doesnt want a bit in her mouth. Right now she rides western in an english hackamore and I really don't like it. Especially for english. Its ok for western since you can keep a loose rein tho. So this is the best sounding one for this horse I can find. I want something mild, but that has more control than a sidepull. Plus she's already used to chin pressure. So I guess im trying to see if there is anyone here that has experience with it or something similar. Or just general opinions. I know the whole bitless bridle topic has been beaten to death, but I could really use some advice. Also let me add that I think my horse wouldnt do well in dr cooks and I want something with quick release.

Never used one, but I wouldn't try it. It really looks like an expensive ($89) way to squeeze the jaw. I think it would be both confusing and annoying to the horse...but like I said, I've never tried one like that. Nor will I...think it would make my mare buck. I'd greatly prefer a sidepull to that.

Get her teeth and mouth examined, and barring any conditions put a bit in her mouth and be done with it. Stop concerning yourself with what the horse "wants". Horse just going to have to get over it. What a horse wants is to stand in a big field and eat all day. Only use I see with a hack or bitless is an endurance horse where eating and drinking on the trail a bit better can be an advantage, even then many people don't use them till the second loop as tthey are lacking in brakes. Other than that I don't see anything being done bitless you can't do with a bit.

Without opening up the can of worms that is bitless vs bitted bridles, since it sounds like you don't have a choice since it isn't your horse, I would say that looks like a good option for what you are looking to accomplish.

Good Luck!

That bridle doesn't look particularly sophisticated- like bsms said, it looks like an expensive way to squeeze the horse's jaw.

If price is an issue, I think you'd do just as well by putting clip on reins onto the horse's halter.

If you have a little bit of a bigger budget, take a look at the Micklem Bridle: Micklem Multibridle - Dressage Bridles from SmartPak Equine It can be used with or without a bit, so if you can convince your aunt to let you try a bit, you already have the tack.
