New Bitless Rope Bridle- I need a name!

Hey everone!

I've been working on a bitless rope bridle design for some time now and FINALLY got it dialed in just the way I want it. I've scoured the internet and my design seems to be unique. It is a halter bridle combo, that isn't just a rope halter with reins attached, or rings added to the outside or extra place to connect reins. It has cross under action similar to that of the Dr. Cooks (not just around the nose band, but the entire jaw/cheek bone) and is is made entirely from one continuous piece of rope including the reins (which can be either split or loop).

Anyhow, I don't know what to call the thing and was wondering if any of you would be so kind as to offer your suggestions...? I liked Light Rider, but there is already a brand by that name.

It's intended use will be for trail/hacking and endurance riding. I will also offer a model without attached reins if the rider would prefer to use their own reins.

Anyhow, I like anything that implies lightness, or would cause an association with trail riding or endurance.

These words also came to mind:
  • Voyager
  • Navigator
  • Cruiser
  • Crusader
  • Scout
  • Quest
I don't have completed pictures yet, but will update when I do!

Thank you :)

I like the name Cruiser. That makes me thing of just cruising along, relaxed and happy. I am interested in seeing the setup, it sounds fascinating.

If you go to my blog (see my signature for link) and search "Bitless" you can find more info about the process of making the bridle (for any DIY fans).

The pictures below were taken while still in the conception phase, and the bridle is lacking the chin strap/loop (the halter part) and the cross under stabilization, but you should get a basic idea (I hope) of the concept. I should also note that it doesn't go on like a traditional rope halter in that you don't tie it, it is totally adjustible still, but no loose ends of rope are left flopping around.

I'm sorry but it looks like a Bitless wonder to me O.o Maybe I'm missing something?

Fifty- the bitless wonder is a cross under side pull, but the action is only directly around the nose/chin. The difference with mine is that the action is spread out and uses pressure points on the nose, cheeks and poll. Mine will also have a loop to attach a lead to that will not interfere with the bridle itself. Oh, and it's a full bridle, not just an add-on for an existing headstall, unless they have another style I am unaware of...


Hope that made sense...

If you plan on marketing these, you might want to do some investigation into the copyright just to make sure you are save from being sued for infringement.

I also like the cruiser for the same reasons smrobs said. Interesting concept!
