    Show her bitless ?

    Last night I found out the mare I ride goes better with just a halter . She stops better and backs up better . She's a little fast but that can be worked with .

    Should I continue with this and just show her in a bosal ? When I told my trainer she had me ride her in a snaffle and ran right through it . So I put her in my trainer's bosal and she did great !

    I'd still bring my bridle with me to shows but would it be a good idea to just continue this ?

    As long as the classes in which you'll be showing allow bitless, I don't see a problem.

    I agree with speed. If the show allows it then there would be no problem. Most shows do not though.

    Have her teath been checked?

    I mostly show open and I've seen people go bitless in a few classes but I'll be sure to ask and bring my bridle just in case .

    No but she's never acted like she's in pain she just does everything better . I'll mention it to my barn owner though since he's the one that owns her .
