There are numerous benefits to using a bitless bridle. If you suspect mouth discomfort might be a factor in undesirable behavior, removing the bit will help pinpoint the problem. On long trail rides, there will be no bit to hinder grazing and drinking. Horses that have had recent dental work, or seniors with tooth issues, will appreciate the bitless comfort. And for the riding school or therapeutic horse, whose riders have not developed an independent seat and soft hands, removing the bit will allow them to relax and focus on their rider more intently.

The transition to riding bitless requires a surprisingly small amount of time and effort — often just one ride. As with introducing any new tack or equipment, it’s best to start in a small enclosed area, such as a round pen or indoor arena.

The Dr. Cook Bitless Bridle was developed after years of research. It’s made in the USA out of premium American materials, marketed all over the world, and used in all disciplines.
