If so, what are your thoughts?

We break all of our young horses using a side pull which is a bitless bridle and we use that for a while till they figure out what we want. We also use a Hackamore from time to time which is also bitless, but eventually they all end up with a bit in their mouth.

A limit on the strap is nice, but the kill has nothing to do with tradition.

I have used them but it depends on the horse as to how well they work. I like them for some.


It's not how many breaths you have taken but how many times it has been taken away!

Has anyone noticed common sense isn't very common anymore.
