Transition To Bitless


Many might suggest it is impossible to get the same control with a bitless bridle, but here’s the evidence. We have participated in many horse shows including the Extreme Mustang Makeover and the Calgary Stampede. It amazes us that even at these high profile and highly competitive events our customers understand instantly the benefits to horse AND rider of our Nurtural Bitless Bridle.

In fact every year when we attend the Calgary Stampede, we host the Nurtural Bitless Challenge. Horse and riders of all types are encouraged to bring their horse into the ring and give our bitless bridle a test run.

The audience then scores the performance. Once with a traditional bridle and then again with the bitless…. and remember these horses have NEVER used or experienced a bitless bridle before this day. See the results in these horse videos.

The most common question we hear is “Will my horse stop in this bitless bridle?” The patented design of the Nurtural Bitless improves stopping power.


Extreme Mustang Makeover Texas Sept 09

Two trainers chose the Nurtural Bitless on the day of the competition! That’s a pretty bold move and a lot of confidence in our Nurtural Bitless Bridle.

Kara Bum:

Kara trained in a bit, and changed the day she saw the Nurtural Bitless Bridle. She tried it with Poseiden and concluded “The Nurtural Bitless works!”

Extreme Mustang Makeover:
Gilbert Chee

Gilbert changed from bit to a hot pink Nurtural Bitless Bridle on the day of the contest as well. Windtalker was a much happier horse.


Bitless Challenges from the Calgary Stampede

“Bring us a horse – any horse!  Whatever it does in its bit, it will do better in a Nurtural Bitless Bridle!” Enjoy the highlights of these 30 minute challenges!

2009: Norwegian Fjord

This is Jennifer with her Norwegian Fjord ‘Jasper’ in a Nurtural Bitless Challenge at the 2009 Stampede. Jasper is a strong horse with a sensitive mouth.

These challenges take place in 30 minutes. The first 10 minutes shows what this horse and rider can do in their regular bit and bridle. Then we switch them for the first time ever to a Nurtural Bitless Bridle. They have up to 5 minutes to practice, then must repeat everything they did in the bit. The audience scores bitted and bitless. You be the judge!
