Switching to Bitless Riding
2:45 pm gmt
Have you ever tried riding bitless? Maybe you have already tried riding in a hackamore. Many people are now considering
or have already made the switch to riding without a bit in the horse's mouth. Some are forced to attempt the transition because
their horse has a problem in his mouth and a bitless bridle is the only option. Others use bitless bridles because they feel
they are kinder to the horse.
I am very grateful to Avis Senior and her two friends, Elinor and Brenda, who brought bitless
riding to my attention. Avis sent me a link to a team competing in a Hunt Chase in bitless bridles. It makes interesting viewing and may convince those of you who worry that you will be run away with that a horse trained
to a bitless bridle can be a fun ride.
If you have experience of riding bitless yourself and would like to add
any information, please get in touch.
