On July the 2nd and 3rd at Albury Showgrounds in Victoria.
I have been invited to teach at two one day Bitless Riding Clinics where riders can try a bitless bridle and learn how to have better control and communication than they currently have with a bit. These workshops will be limited to 10 riders each day with no limit on observers. Each rider ticket for $150 entitles them to bring an observer for free and to be an observer on the alternate day (= to $250 in value). Observer tickets are $50 per day or $80 for both days. The clinics are open to riders of any age over 12, of all experience levels and for those that don't have their own bitless bridle, they will be provided.
Workshop times are 9.30 - 4.30 and all attending will be able to purchase LightRider Bitless Bridles at 10-20% discount. Bookings/enquiries can be made with Kelly Bick at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 02 6071 0210.
The May news includes:
I am very pleased to announce that after almost a year of trialling the LightRider Bitless Bridle and Bitless Noseband, the executive of Horse Safety Australia have given their endorsement.
"it is something the executive were happy to endorse, especially considering the quality of the materials in your products."
Horse Safety Instructor, Nina Arnott, writes "My horseriding organisation, 'Wirraway', is using both the full bridle and the noseband that you sent us and we are really happy with them. I see a real advantage to them in our sort of work, with mostly beginner riders, and horses which could be a bit sensitive in the mouth. Quiet horses, which react to pressure on the reins, especially (inadvertently rough) activity of the hands of beginners, are so happy with a bitless bridle! It has also virtually cured a head shy horse, which hated having the bit in its mouth with these riders."
This endorsement adds more credibility to bitless bridles in general as Horse Safety Australia are a responsible, recognised organisation with Instructor and Trail Guide certifications.
Perhaps this will encourage other clubs and competitions to allow bitless bridles.
In the near future the Horse Safety Australia website will be updated with information and links on the LightRider Bitless Bridles, but in the meantime, see what they have to offer.
