    I agree completely. Every horse should be able to be ridden bitless if it had good training, same for the rider.

    Well said, this is great! Thanks for posting this! It's opened my eyes up to my horse, and why his mouth is so hard. I bought him from a girl that did that exact thing. She used a snaffle, and eventually made him wear a Martha Josa Million Dollar bit, (I think it's called) with a noseband, AND a tiedown. I'm soft with my hands, so it's been a challenge to teach him to be soft in his mouth, with the regular snaffle training bit. He's doing fantastic, and I can run him on Barrels in a snaffle!! His only issues are rearing, and stopping. His old owner didn't teach him to slow before each hard turn, and that's why she had such harsh bits on him, she made him slow down without him understanding the concept, which results in awful turns.. So I'm working on his turning, stopping and rollbacks! I'm so proud of him!
