This western style Dr. Cook Bitless Bridle allows the rider to communicate by painless pressure that is distributed around the whole of the head which is an entirely different concept from all other types of bridles. A bitted bridle enables the rider to communicate by applying pressure on the exquisitely sensitive mouth, and traditional bitless bridles (i.e., the Hackamores, bosals and sidepulls) work primarily through pressure on the nose. A bit often applies harsh pressure to the mouth, over a small area whle the Bitless Bridle distributes its gentle pressure to far less sensitive tissues and distributes even this amount of pressure over a wide area.
- Loops over the poll and over the nose provide even pressure distribution for controlling your horse
- Gives the rider an inoffensive method of communication by applying a nudge to one half of the head (for steering) or a hug to the whole of the head (for stopping)
- Minimal pressure spreads over a large and less critical area makes it more humane than a bit
- Provides better communication, promotes a true partnership between horse and rider, and does not interfere with either breathing or striding
- Can improve performance for many different types of horses
- Traditional western flare with the small decorative concho & water tie
- Durable harness leather in a lighter oil color & western style rounded buckles
