This blog was started because of a piece of metal.
This blog is about why I don't/others should not use a bit on their horses and start to think about the other bitless options out there.
I do believe a very large percentage of horses are over bitted. In the right hands a bit can be a teaching tool but there are circumstances that could happen out of any riders hands, like a horse stepping on a rein and breaking his hard palate into his nasal cavity requiring the horse to be euthanized immediately.
After all, the horses mouth is the most sensitive part of his body. Do we really need to use a method created back when Genghis Khan ruled the earth and the earth was believed to be flat and not spherical? I think not.
I will continue my journey without metal in my horses mouth and I know theres an alarming rate of horse owners joining me on this bitless path in every single discipline. Keep up the good work guys and if you have/know someone who has a bitless story to share please contact me to be featured on this blog.
