Bitless Transition Training is highly recommended so that your transition to bitless riding is safe, solid and enjoyable for both you and your horse.
Riding (or driving) without a bit in the horse's mouth requires the person to learn some new skills and to be able to communicate these skills to the horse - so that the horse and rider are communicating on the same page. Transitioning to bitless is NOT a case of just removing the bit!
This different way of communicating with your horse is best learnt on the ground. The steps are very easy to learn. The techniques are straightforward, simple and clear. Much of this training is focussed on teaching the horse to move lightly and instantly off-pressure. Learning how to influence the horse to move a particular foot in a particular direction is also an important part of successful bitless riding.
Learning how to stop and back up a horse with a suggestion (rather than a firm pull on his mouth as is common) as well as encouraging soft lateral flexion are some other key aspects of successful, soft and satisfying Bitless Transition Training.
