Gimme a Dream, i have wondered about bitless bridles, in particular the sidepull and the Aussie Nobit bridle NoBit Bridle Product Information, how it works and what it is made of. Apollo, bridle
but currently i don't think my horse would listen to me without a bit. In the future though when i've worked with him some more, i'll definately look into it.

i like the third bit as well!!

french link bits vs snaffel bits.
a snafffel bit pinches the toung and does a "crackerjack" like motion on the roof of their mouths. this makes for a tender mouth. i have used this bit for years and yes my horses listen to it but i never knew how uncomfortable that was for them.

i have since switched to the french link and it relieves pressure to their tounge and rests in a more "natural" way across their toungs. no crackerjack motion to the roo of their mouth.

the natural bit..hummmm this really demends on the horse and their rider. the wat it pulls on the poll and tightens around their face can really scew with some horses heads. some could careless. if you do try this i would be very careful. i would aska trainer or someone who is familiar with your horse..ie vet..trainer and this product b4 trying it. you may find out that it was a complete waist of $. one the other hand you and your horse may love it. be careful in your decision making when it come to bits/bridals...
