Beta Biothane Bitless bridles?

I am looking for some comments. I have never actually seen this brand before but would like some reviews if anyone has actually tried them out. I want to know how they hold up as I am really looking into getting one.

Here is one I found on ebay

They have a 7 day guarantee which makes me feel a little better but I have my fingers crossed that someone would have some insight.

Some horses don't like the pressure of the cheek straps. I have one myself and I never use it. It puts pressure on the poll so they drop their heads. But because the crossing cheek straps put pressure on the under side of the jaw they push their nose out. Some horses like it some horses don't.

Do you have this specific one though? I am more or less interested in the quality of this one. I am unsure if I want to buy it or not.

I have the brand you are interested in. It's not worth the money you'll put into it. I recommend a leather side pull. They have thick leather with nice metal tooling. My synthetic beta is flimsy while my friends side-pull is very sturdy. The side pull rides more like a halter so your horse will feel more natural in it. With my beta I had to school my mustang for 2 weeks in it before she really started listening. So in short I recommend the leather side-pulls.

There are, from what I've seen, 3 styles of bitless bridles, the Nurtural in which the throat strap is part of the poll strap, the Dr. Cook with the sliding throat strap and the Linda T-Jones with is a side pull with small straps that support the nose band. Each will work a little differently. My preference would be the Nurtural so the poll strap isn't sliding back and forth. The Nurtural also comes in the cheaper yet stronger nylon. Check the website. Altho Canadian, they are out of Toledo in the US.

Hmm, those nutural bridles look interesting. I don't think I seen them for driving before but it would be something I would want to invest in.

I could not get the link to open right. If I understand right, you are looking at a biothane bitless bridle.

I have owned several. Two were from bitlessbridle . Com and were fantastic. Both of these have been stolen so I have to give up and buy a new one for the filly I am helping my daughter train.

They are great for older horses who been there done that and don't need much to get them to do what they are supposed to do.

They are fantastic for a horse who fights the bit, especially green ones.

They are perfect for a green horse who has learned to bolt with their tongue over the bit as you can circle them to a stop in half the distance it woudl normally take to stop them.

They are good for drivng a calm horse down the road - but not so good with one that wants to bolt.

Just my experience. I am goign to try to post a pic of my Shaman in harness at a medieval games in his biothane bitless bridle... wish me luck!

OK - if you hit the next button, you get a close up of him undersaddle in the bitless - my daughter was doing medieval games with him undersaddle while I did them in harness.

These after a lot of research seem to be the best bitless bridle for our needs at a somewhat descent price. If anyong has any information on this one I would love to hear about it.
