    I've been doing bitless for several months now. Sonny responds just as well as the bitted bridle. Don't have any pictures but wanted to share. I think he enjoys bitless as much as I do :)

    I ride my ottb in an Indian hack. I've read that a lot of people don't like them, but she rides better in it than anything else. I got the kind that hooks to her own headstall. She hated the Dr. Cook's bridle!

    I've ridden in a bitless bridle, rope and nylon halters, and an s hackamore. They all worked great with her, especially the s hack.

    Mine misbehaves in a bitless. She is goo 80% of the time, then she says "HAHAHA You can't stop me!" and she charges for home. Its short lived but she only tries it every now and then in a bit (Yay barn sour!). I have started doing what the Vaquero's do, but instead of a bosal under the bridle I have her rope halter. Seams to work.

    I used to ride my first leased gelding in just a halter with lead rope attached and it was really nice! He was much lower-key without tack on (with a bit he would turn into his old gymkhana self and want to just race around the arena).

    This is Blue and I (don't mind my seat, I was just learning to ride hehe)




    I also occasionally take out the mare I'm currently leasing bareback in a halter, though she's a little more stubborn when she doesn't have a bit and knows she can overpower me. It's still nice in the winter though, keeps my buns warm

    Grew up riding in a bridleless/saddleless drill team over fences. It was great fun. Start with a neck strap, position the horse through the positioning of the legs, horses will follow light changes of weight. Lungeing horse with a strap around their neck can give huge control for some horses as well!

    I love to ride without my hackamore (I don't use bridals with bits). I love it a lot!

    While this isn't the greatest video, I've ridden Faith bridleless a few times. She does very well, considering she's only 3 years old. She even backs up. I love my baby. Haha. I tried riding in half of the arena, because I only had my 250mm lens. I couldn't capture the entire part of the arena, only a bit of the corner. So I edited out the parts where I wasn't riding.

    Keeps your buns warm? You don't look like you're dressed for winter in this pic! I realize this was probably not taken during the winter, just giving you a hard time hehe. Cute photos!

    This is really great stuff!!!!! Way to go with her. I hope to ride my chestnut gelding that came to me completely unstarted and mishandled that way. Thanks for sharing.
