The Transition to Bitless Riding presentations I did at Equitana in Melbourne recently were a huge success and attended by lots of people looking at riding bitless. With the help of Nelly Jaehne and her young nieces, Nadia and Annie, we showed all the steps to train or transition to a bitless bridle. These are especially important for green horses and riders as many educated horses have no problems with changing over to a bitless bridle.
The two horses who helped demonstrate the groundwork tasks then how it translated to riding, were a 3yo Clydy x Friesian gelding and a 2yo Gypsy Cob colt so their educaiton was just beginning.
The work we had done with them and the girls paid off when the PA system unexpectedly went crazy with lots of loud noise that scared the horses, but the girls kept perfect control with the use of the hindquarter yield they had been practising - until it became an automatic response which is what keeps a bitless rider (or any rider for that matter) safe and in control.
Interest from the two 45 minute presentations translated into lots of LightRider Bitless Bridle sales so I'm sure there will be many more happier horses out there enjoying the comfort of bitless and giving their riders a much nicer riding experience as a result.
