I purchased this Bitless bridle following much research.
My 21 year old 17hh Warmblood is as strong as an ox, but has a horrendous mouth. His dentist believes he may have suffered a broken jaw at some point and in the 5 years I have owned him, he has lost a number of teeth. Tacking up has always been an issue and if I tried to do this in the stable, he would make for the corner at the sight of the bridle. In the early days, I would always have to dodge being bitten or kicked, and he is not by nature a bad tempered horse.
I liked the idea of going bitless, but as I predominantly hack out in a busy area, I was really concerned that I would not have enough control.
Although I rode in a french link hanging cheek snaffle, I relied on a martingale and grackle noseband to assist keeping his head down prior to speed work, and to stop him crossing his jaw.
I bought the bridle in April this year and was not going to use it until I had a lesson in the school. Due to the awful weather and other commitments, this just wasn't happening.
I noticed that Rebel's mouth seemed to be sore and the dentist was not due for a while as she was booked up.
I took the plunge and went out with my niece on her horse and we went around the local farmer's fields. I figured that if he did bolt, at least we were enclosed and he wouldn't get out on to the road.
I have now been out for 5 seperate rides wearing this bridle, incorporating all sort of pace scenarios.
I am absolutely thrilled to bits. Rebel is a different horse to ride. He looks so happy and is a joy to control - he is actually more responsive in this bridle.
At first it felt like riding in a head collar and that was weird, but I will never go back to putting a bit in his mouth.
It is fantastic to be dispensing with all the extras that I previously used to ensure I had some control.
If I can ride him in a bitless bridle, then I would suggest most people could do the same. He is not a novice horse, albeit a gent, but is incredibly strong and forward going.
