Lots of information in all aspects of bitless bridles

Really good course, really enjoyed this. I have Napoleon bitless and use a Hackamore. He has a big tongue which was our reason for the bitless route. I use either an English Hackamore or a Baroque, the shorter shanks. I do find using one from the ground difficult, so I use a well fitting leather headcollar for ground work.

Excellent intro to bitless riding

This is an excellent introduction to bitless riding. I do wish there had been more info around when I went bitless several years ago. Basically I just used a Dr Cooks western bridle and did no transitioning whatsoever! However my horse was western and voice trained. Look forward to the full course, thank you .
