    Bitless Bridle 'Walnut'

    The humane alternative for all riding styles.
    Our bitless bridle distributes the pressure lightly and evenly over the nasal bone, the cheeks and the poll. It does not create punctual pressure in just one spot and therefore provides pain free and safe rein aids which increases the trust between horse and rider.
    The throat latch is the extension of the reins - due to the criss crossed reins the horse understands your aids easily which will help you to put her/him on the bit without twisting or false bending  at the poll. Bitless bridles work very well with even the slightest pressure; e.g. quick halfhalt on the left rein triggers a steady but pain free pressure on the opposite side of the horse´s head. The horse evades the pressure on the right and turns to the left. If you apply light pressure on both reins or right and left on the individual reins - your horse will yield and give at the poll.
    Very suitable for every riding style, Western, English, Endurance or trail - even lunging. As with all new equipment we suggest to try the bitless bridle in a fenced in area first. The noseband should be resting  2 cm above the mouth crease and you should be able to get 2 fingers under the noseband.
    Our bitless bridle is an especially gentle design. Noseband, crown piece and browband are all nicely padded. The crown piece is extra wide and has a thick padding to reduce pressure behind the ears.

    Bridle without bit

    Horse-friendly bitless riding. Today we know that there are alternatives: We can reach the same goals with our horse using gentler methods that do not rely on inflicting pain or the use of force. In order to build up a real partnership with our horse, we should be critical of any influence that demands coercion or pain from the horse, e.g. the use of a bit. Today, behavioural biologists are pointing us in a new direction – it is up to us to have the courage to take these new paths. Link to brochure: Bitless riding.

    My 23year old mare has a melanoma in the corner of her mouth, so I tried her in my cobs bitless western bridle. It was slightly too large even with extra holes but she was more comfortable. Having bought from Horse and Harmony many times I decided to buy the Barefoot bitless bridle, it is extremely well made and padded so very comfortable, it fits superbly and she is a very happy pony now. Her way of going is back to normal as she is happy with no bit to rub on the sore area. Unfortunately I can't take her to the dressage competitions any more - she is a dressage super-star. Instead we intend to go western - great fun to be had by all. For those unsure of the bitless option I would say give it a try my 2 horses are much happier bitless. The control always comes from seat and weight aids so there is no problem with stopping because reins are always used as a last resort. Thank you Barefoot.

    I have been riding my mare in a webbing bitless bridle for a while now, and as she so clearly prefers it, I decided to abandon the bit altogether and upgrade to a smarter bitless bridle. Of all the different models I looked at, I thought the Barefoot bitless bridle was the most thoughtfully designed - the cross-under straps are rolled to allow them to slide easily through the rings for clear communication, and the headpiece and noseband are padded and comfortable. I received my bridle today (less than 48 hours after ordering!). I am SO pleased with it, it has even exceeded my expectations - the leather is soft and supple and the bridle is beautifully made. Thank you!
