All you bitless riders,do you just ride with a rope halter,or do you use a hackamore? If a hackamore,what hackamore do you prefer?

I don't think I would ever ride truly bit less. I like the leverage a hackamore provides. I also have a side pull rope halter. Junk I think. My horse hates the thing. But I typically ride with a bit since I'm English focusing on dressage.

With doing alot of "boonies' riding,I feel more secure with a bit as well. I've found it's pretty much impossible to keep a horse under control when it encounters a bear,cougar,or moose,ect. Without one,it's just more safe all the way around to pop in a snaffle. I wouldn't mind getting them to the point where they could go bitless though,just for cruising around the farm and such.

Actually,the cougars are almost worse,because they are so sneaky and quiet;they like to stalk you. Now that freaks me out! I do find bears to be pretty scary to though,they're so unpredictable. Thankfully,we don't get too many cats or bears around, although horses come undone just about as bad when they see moose,for some reason,and those we have a few more of.

They will,especially during mating season or if they have babies,or if they're on or near a kill. If I know there's one in the area,I just stick close to home. Better safe than sorry!
