The action of this bridle differs fundamentally from all other bridles (hackamores, bosals and sidepulls). By means of a simple, but subtle system of two loops, one over the poll and one over the nose, the bridle embraces the whole of the head.
Unlike the bit method of control, the BITLESS BRIDLE does not injure or frighten the horse. It will not interfere with the horse's ability to breathe and stride freely, as the bit does.
I put my OTTB mare in one of these as she hated the bit and wouldn't listen to me. After trying other hackamores first, then using the Dr. Cook bitless bridle, all I can say is WOW. The difference is amazing, the response was gr8, she loves it, listens to me, is content without the bit, and we made huge progress after switching. I also have another horse that was being ridden in an English jumping hackamore. This bridle was a big improvement with her as well. She stops better, breathes better and is much happier. I just purchase another horse, and she will be going into one of these as well. They are awesome !!! You will be very happy if you give this bridle a try.
Ever since I've owned my mare I have had problems with her moving out too fast, not wanting to stay stopped, fidgeting with bit, pulling her tongue back and putting her head close to the ground after I bridled her. It took about 30 minutes in the bitless bridle to be sure, but the change was drastic. She began to yield to slight twitches of the reins, instead of long pulls. She stopped within 1 stride and stood without trying to take off again. Figure eights were smooth and responsive and for the first time she had one ear back and one forward....she was listening to me. I can't say enough about this bridle and I will not ride her again without one.
