Don't worry about inexperience. My kids rode bosal horses. They started six BLM feral horses in bosals when they were aged 11 to 17, and weren't real handy then, yet.
I know a guy whose mare is probably 14 and he never progressed her past the bosal. They are where they need to be and are happy with how they work together.
