    Just to add, I had to make a few tries before I found the perfect bitless bridle for my horse. He didn't like the popular Dr.Cook's, because of the head-hugging pressure it has. He didn't respond well to a simple sidepull - it seemed that he doesn't enjoy the pressure points it uses, as he always became very stiff in his neck and poll as soon as it was put on, and we could have used it only for light hacking on a loose rein, no schooling. He goes rather well in a rope halter, but, when I tried the LG bridle and the little S hack, I instantly felt the difference, shown to me by a relaxed, happy and engaged horse. :)

    Sounds like we'll be doing some "trial and error" until we find what works for us.

    Theres a lot of trial and error - hard to escape it
    Another thought - If you do try a bit then look at the Happy Mouth range - I like them and use them - just keep a constant check for signs of biting on the 'rubber'
