WHAT ABOUT BITLESS?
Some horses go really well in a bitless bridle and there’s a growing number of options available, such as the Dr Cook bitless bridle shown above. The Hackamore is a popular choice and, although not legal for dressage, it can be used in other disciplines. It acts on the nose, behind the jaw and the poll. The longer the shank, the more leverage it produces, and the narrower the pads or straps across the nose, the more severe.
