Right now I ride my horse with a snaffle, but I want to train her to let me ride her with a bitless bridle, or just a halter. My Quarterhorse allows me to ride her with just a halter, but I bought her like that. I don't like the bit at all, and I feel that it could hurt their mouth, and my horse is annoyed with it. I also want to have the joy of just jumping on her back to go for a bareback stroll without worrying about tacking up.
If I just try this will she understand what I am asking her?
