Crossover bitless bridle - Dr. Cook or Nurtural?

I'm getting ready to start training my 4 yr old mare to saddle and bridle and after reading up and knowing she is very sensitive with her mouth, I've decided to go with a crossover bitless bridle. Does anyone have any experience with either the Dr. Cook or Nurtural bitless bridles and any pros/cons to them...any preferences for either brand and why?

I just got a leather Natural crossover bitless. I love it to death! I had been riding my boy in a nylon halter, and wanted something that looked nice, and offered a bit more control if needed. It took a few days for him to get used to it, and I had to get him used to the different feel of pressure than what you get from a halter, but its working great now. He is so much more responsive.
Sorry, don't know anything about Dr. Cooks.

I got a Dr. Cooks crossunder bb for christmas to start my 4yo mare. She did great with it. It takes her a little to get used to it, but after a few adjustments she's happy and goes along well. I love it. She still prefers a rope halter believe it or not, maybe too much pressure around her head. It definitely takes some getting used to. :)

Thanks both for the feedback! Guess I'll flip a coin and give one a shot. Lol I may just try the rope halter or maybe a side pull as well. She's very responsive and gives to gentle pressure, so she might also find the whole head pressure a little much.

If she's already very sensitive, you might be better off going with a side pull, which is gentler and less confusing.

I have the freedom bridle from Moss Rock Endurance and I really like it. We started with the combo configuration.

I like to work on the ground with abit, when teaching them walking, trotting and the whoa, but when it comes to saddle work I move to a sidepull . Its really good for teaches a western horse to neck rein as well..
