Thanks for your reply. I have never ridden bitless before, but the more I investigate it the more I have become convinced that it is a kinder way to ride. I will measure him carefully before I decide, but, one more question,\Is it possible to have the bridle without the ring on the front of the noseband for attaching the lunge line? My boy's only limitation with his one eye is that he does not like to be lunged - quite understandably.
New member just found your site by way of investigating bitless bridles!
I would be very grateful for any comments or advice you may have for me, I was considering the Dr Cookes bridle but now that I have seen your bridle I think it looks a better design. Thanks - Janet
Hi William I read the article in the sjai bulletin I thought it was great. I love the idea of Barnmice I love to read peoples different veiws and ideas on different topics. Thank you very much again for your fantastic talk at bel-air, myself and my friends really enjoyed it, it made us all think about are lower leg posision and the importance of where it is when you are going down drops. We also loved the pictures and all those fantastic riders and what they achieved I hope some day I will be like them! Thanks Sarah
I just wanted to say that after having been lectured to ad nauseam by one of my professors about the damage the bridle can inflict on the horse (he is one of the foremost experts on head-shaking), I was very excited to see your bridle. It is great that you have taken the time to design one that relieves the major facial nerves. I should be quite surprised if I am not out showing in one next summer! It is great that you have approached bridle design in a modern and scientific fashion.
I have to say I also quite like Jackaroo, he'll be exciting to see develop in the next few years.
thanks for joining my group, we spoke very highly of your blogs last week, keep posting, I know I enjoy them. I would like to get a hold of your book, is it available readily here in Canada? If your book is anything like your blogs...well its should be an excellent read!
