Well lest see. A bit when properly used takes about 1 inch of movement from your hand to cue a horse. Less then a 1/2 once of pressure.
A bit-less bride takes a lot more movement of your hand and a lot more pressure.
I have said this before yet the people who ride bit less seem not to want to give it a try.
Go and put on your bit less bride. Then attach your reins to that bit less bridle with a single piece of thread. You know the type that you use to put buttons on your coat. Then take your horse out and run him full out and ask for a stop. See if you can get that horse to stop before our brake the thread. If that is too much to ask see if you can get them to turn or do anything with out braking the piece of thread.
I know I can do this with my horses and a bit.
