Opinions on this bitless bridle

Just wondering what peoples opinions are in regards to a cross over bitless bridle as we have just baught one for Molly as she is scared of bits.

She is happy going for a walk in it the face is just because she wanted to eat grass

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.

Some horses love them, some horses hate them. I know that they are pretty popular. My horse hated it so much that I started to lose control and emergency dismounted! Generally speaking though, most horses I've come across work well with them.

I know a couople horses that work great in them and an couple that don't. Each individual horse is different. But one mare I know is also terrified of bits and works great in it but is she having a perticularily mare-ish day the breaks don't work so well. But I'm sure that could be fixed with more training...alas not my horse so not something I have a ton of control over.

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being...If you never love a horse, you will never understand.

Some horse's do better in them and some do worse. If the bridle fits good and your horse likes it then why not try it.

My mare did horribly in hers, she did not like the poll pressure caused by it.

Yours is so attractive, that if she did not like it, I would turn it into a regular side-pull ;) You could add a throat latch and take off the crossunder pieces and just attach the reins right to the rings. I ride my mare in a simple sidepull for jumping and she loves it.
