I'm not too fond of bitless for the same reason i'm not too fond of Parelli. It's the whole, "If you don't ______________(fill with Use Parelli methods, Ride bitless, etc) you are a horse abuser." I just read a bitless ad that said, "Bits cause pain, anxiety, and obstruct horses' breathing." Really? Just like yanking on a horse's sinus cavities will cause pain, anxiety, and obstruction of breathing. I just hate the my-way-or-the-highway mentality. If I had a horse who didn't work well with a bit, i'd consider bitless. But, personally, I have never worked with a horse who hated bits; just hated the hands that held the reins on the other end.
