Dr. Cook's
Nylon Bitless Bridle
Western Bridles



Manufacturer: Dr. Cook's
Model: Nylon Bitless Bridle
Category: Western Bridles

Purchase: I purchased my Bitless Bridle from an authorized seller on Ebay for $69.95. My 12 year old Morgan gelding was bad about shaking and tossing his head when being ridden, and would put up a real fight when I tried to bridle him. He was also jiggy and tense feeling a lot of the time. I read about the Dr. Cook's Bitless Bridle and how it helped with these types of problems and decided to give it a shot.

Likes: I like the ease of care nylon tack offers. It fit my horse perfectly and was easy to adjust. I was afraid it would take some time for him to adjust to the bitless bridle but he responded to it during the very first ride! I actually have more control than I did when he was being ridden in a snaffle. Without the distraction and discomfort of a hunk of steel in his mouth, my horse is responding more to seat & leg pressure. I barely put any pressure on the reins at all now. He stops & backs beautifully. He is much more relaxed and has not tossed his head once in the bitless bridle! His whole body is more rounded under saddle now. He stands like a perfect gentleman when I bridle him, too. This bridle has made a big difference to me and my horse, and now another horse owner at the barn has tried my bitless bridle on his "problem" horse and once again there's a big improvement in the horse's behavior under saddle. I was a bit of a skeptic about this bridle but there's a money back guarantee so I opted to try it out and boy am I glad I did! It really has helped my horse and I have a better relationship on the ground and in the saddle.

Dislikes: I thought the $69.95 price tag a bit much for a piece of nylon tack, but after seeing how much it changed my horse's behavior I'd pay twice that!

Quality: It's quite well made. Feels very sturdy, all the hardware is stainless steel, the nylon it's made of is nice and thick and soft.

Summary: If you're considering going bitless, do it! My horse and I are much happier in the Dr. Cook's. It is a bit pricey but considering what you'd spend trying out different bits it's really not that bad. The claims made on the Dr. Cook's website are true. Wearing a bit can't be comfortable to a horse, so who wouldn't want to make their horse more comfortable & happy? And if you decide it's not for you you can just send it back for a refund.
