I would like to try a bitless bridle because my horse will slow down, stop, or lower gait if I just sit back in the saddle and stop sending with my legs. I have never had a problem with him bolting so I am not afraid of that and I would hope that maybe he would have more forward impulsion. Can you use a bitless for direct reining? becausee his neck reining is not that developed.

I ride my thoroughbred in a Dr. Crooks bit less Bridle. He was okay with a bit but ended up being way more relaxed and responsive with the bit less. Just depends on the horse.

I only ride my mare bitless now. She goes better and is much more relaxed. I didn't really like what was for sale so I made my own: Home - Rydem Bitless
