“How do I stop my horse in a trot or canter when riding bitless”? I get this question all the time. It is a myth to think a bit in your horse’s mouth is enough to stop them – how many times have you been on a runaway horse with a bit in his mouth? I can count the times on both hands, did the bit help me then NO!! So when I started riding bitless I used the classic bitless bridle on the market that has the reins over the poll and crossing under the chin. I was told this bitless bridle gives a new meaning to the word whoa, NOT. It created a vise grip action that caused my horse to toss her head trying to get out of the grip. It didn’t do any good with our relationship either that’s for sure.
I liked using a rope halter to ride with, but I didn’t get the lateral flex I wanted since the cues were coming from under the chin where I tied the lead rope. Necessity was the mother of invention for me so I sat down and spent 3 days tying rope halters and figuring out how to tie side pull loops just behind the horses smile. I finally did it! The All-In-One bitless bridle was born and that’s all I use from start to finish from training to trail riding, dressage riding ALL RIDING & TRAINING!! Any horse from any age it works.
