Hi Hoofprints in the Sand,
I replied to your question on the other thread, but just wanted to let you know that I actually feel safer with the Bitless Bridle than with a bit. With a bit, if the horse spooks and you pull on their mouth, their just going to get more scared because of the pain. Then, they just bolt and run through it.
I feel like I have more control with the Bitless, because it doesn't cause pain (making the horse more scared), but yet the horse can't get away from the pressure. Therefore, allowing me to stop the horse, turn, etc. whatever I need to do at the time.
You should really give the Bitless Bridle a try. Hey... if it doesn't work, just send it back!
You can buy it and try it for 30 days, and if you're not satisfied, you can send it back for a full refund.
I think both you and Sandie will be very happy with the Bridle.
I'll end this post with a quote from Joe Camp (creator of the Benji movies) “Forget the no-more-metal rhetoric, forget the pain, forget the cruelty – all of which are true – the darned thing just works better than a bit!”
