Category: English Bridles
Purchase: I ordered my bitless bridle from BitlessBridle.com. I paid $83 for the English Beta Bridle. I had been looking for something to help me with my strong horse. The reviews said it worked great on strong horses that were hard to control. So I decided to buy it.
Likes: It is great quality. I use my bitless on my older horses that are used in the lesson programs. They seem to really like it. It is a great alternative from a bit that can cause pain to the horse. It is great for trail riding also.
Dislikes: I bought it for my strong horse thinking it was going to give me some more control. Well, it didn't. I read all these reviews saying how wonderful it was on strong horses. My horse did ok in it the 1st day. Then she started to take advantage of it and it didn't stop her anymore than a snaffle would. I use a kimberwicke now and it works pretty good for cross country, but I am still trying to find something else for her. If your horse is strong and can't be ridden in a snaffle, this is most likely not the bridle for you.
Quality: The bitless bridle is of great quality. You can't tell it is not real leather until you feel it. Also, it is nothing like a hackamore which puts pressure on the nose which can cause breathing problems.
Summary: It is a great bridle for the average horse. The bitless is great for trail horses and older horses whose teeth aren't as good as they used to be. But, if your horse is strong and can't be controlled in a snaffle, this is most likely not going to work for your horse.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
