Yacht Rope Bitless Bridle Attachment

I am looking into getting one of these. Any critique or good and or bad expierences with them? Here is the ebay page Yacht Rope Bitless Bridle Side Pull Attachment - eBay (item 280469360795 end time Mar-24-10 20:44:24 PDT) let me know if the link doesn't work and i'll paste the pictures up. They also have a video of it as well.

EDIT: I just realized that it shows several types that they make. The one I am interested in is the one 3rd picture. The one that is pink and black. And another question do you think we could have to get a special bridle? Or would it attach to the usual one that we use? And also in the video at about 1 minute it shows one that if you were to pull on the reins it would tighten around the nose. Wold that one be better than the one I was looking at originally? Or which one on the video is the best in your opinion?

I am interested in hearing what others have to say on these. I have been debating getting a side pull or a bitless bridle. Not sure what the exact difference is though between the side pull, bitless bridle and the indian bosal.

As far as sidepulls go, they are great for training and ground driving, and all around riding. I do use a sidepull attachment... which I got off of ebay (her store name is crazy ropes by debbie I think) I love it. My horese responds to it real well. I ride bitless, but I also train bitless. If you have a well broke horse, the transition from bit to bitless or sidepull should be simple. However, if you have a horse that may not transition smoothly, I suggest ground driving in a regular side pull for a few days to a week before using one of these attachments. For the person who said nobody rides in a bosel... you are wrong. Many people use them. We are totally bitless. For the most part, I use the sidepull attachments (after I initially break the horse), however, I do have 2 horses that I use the indian bosels on. They are great.

What I love about the attachments is, I can use any headstall I want. They are beautiful, and then being able to use your own headstall... its just great. Same with the indian bosels. So no, you do not need to buy a special headstall, you can use your favorite one you have now!

They look very nicely made! I think I'm going to get a...few, hahah I love custom things for my horses, so I often have way to many things because if one horse has a custom halter/pad/bridle etc. even brushes the other one must, I never share the same thing between horses I'm a little obsessive.:P

Anywhoos I'm not a huge fan of parelli stuff but I really do like their halters and leads because the yachting rope is so nice, its soft and has give, and feel but when you need it to be firm it has a little bite to it........ But parelli is crazaly priced, their halters are $40 and their hackamores are $100, and I mean the two are identical! The only difference is the hackamore has permanently attached reins, but they are attached at the bottom where a regular lead would go not side pull. As I said I like the quality of the rope but not the stupidness!! Okay there goes my rant on that, anyways I would definetly go for it as they can be customized and are a really good price, I personally would go with the ultimate riding halter if you feel confidant you don't need a little extra controll the bosal would give you, because I would just use the rains as a lead rope then just clip them on the sides for riding so no switching between things, I'm a big one for simplicity.

I am not familiar with the parelli stuff, but I do not like high priced stuff, lol! These little sidepulll attachments work pretty well. I was glad I found them. I wanted to stay bitless, but get a nice looking headstall and it just seemed that my options were very slim... not a whole lot of choice in headstalls, and very expensive. So finding Deb's crazy ropes store was great!

Simplicity is good!

Love the profile pic!

I love the words "Bitless Bridle" there.

Well... Back to the topic. I tried one of those. Was not impressed frankly. You can attach it to any headstall. The problem with mine was it was somewhat sliding over the horse head, which I didn't like. Also my horses were not impressed with the pressure on nose. So the bottom line IMO it's a good thing to use on trained quiet horse on trail rides. I would NOT use it for training.

I have a indian bosal attachment and I was fairly impressed. I used it on my un-broke mare for ground driving and she responded well to the pressure on her nose. If you go to crazyropes.com they have more options. I got the indian bosal attachment with knots on it so it has a little more bite to it cause I heard that the flat indian bosal didn't seem to give enough pressure. ( My mare is half way crazy and needs a bit more pressure anyway haha).

I defiantly (sp?) reccomend it! Specially if you have a calm, responsive horse.
