    My horses HATED the doctor cooks bitless. I think it had something to do with the presure being distributed to so many different points, even though I have very soft hands. Tried it on three horses and gave up. I use a leather side pull that a local guy made for me. I'll have to get a picture, it looks awesome, is simple and works great. I'm not a big fan of mechanical hackamores. I also regularly ride in a rope halter.

    I figure if a horse can feel a fly landing on its bum, it can certainly feel me pulling on a halter and respond accordingly

    I've noticed my horse has two white lines on her face, one on either side. They're about an inch long, and by her if she had a bit in her mouth pulling back on her lips, that's where the white lines are. They're an inch or two long. Could these be from having a bit ripped around in her mouth with a lot of pressure? She's only two still, but I know she had people on her back, including some young kids, before I bought her. This is part of the reason I'm reluctant to use a bit on her. She's not headshy at all, and doesn't seem sensitive in that area, but could this be a possibility?

    That's part of the reason I'm interested in a bitless bridle.

    I've never heard of this, but anything is possible I guess. You should try a bit and see how she reacts. I've had two, one with a weird mouth, and one that was really sensitive, that by far prefered a halter or side pull, but idealy a horse will work well in a bit or without.
