  • King

    Kathleen & the ‘King of England’ Challenge

    4 year old OTTB - taken off the track, adopted for eventing but returned due to his severe bit evasion. Kathleen has rescued him and sees great potential BUT her trainer insists on a running martingale to protect Kathleen from being bopped in the face from King throwing his head! So Kathleen took to the internet to research options. The one that makes the most sense to her is the Nurtural. This is their before and after video.

  • Bitless Dressage in the Rain

    Leslie Smith Dow wrote the first review of the Nurtural Bitless Bridle in the 2005 Nov/Dec issue of Horse Canada Magazine. After testing her national show horse she concluded:"When riding I forgot I was using a Nurtural Bridle since it feels so similar to a regular bridle. In November 2006, Leslie wrote:"I am still enjoying the Nurtural bridle and hack for hours in it, including long, crazy gallops in fields. I can actually stop my horse faster with a Nurtural bridle than I can with a bit, since he tends to fight the bit."

  • Nurtural Bitless Western

    This 4 minute video shows two examples of the same horse doing barrels and poles in the Nurtural Bitless Bridle. The first is the very first time that Badger ever used a bitless bridle. Before this, he had fought the bit so intently that he was barely able to compete. He was in his home arena at the end of a show season. The second is in the indoor arena at the Can-Am show in London in May 2007. Badger was not used to this environment, the announcer, the lights, the crowd -- and had not been ridden much recently. And Badger is a whole handful of horse!

  • Bit to Bitless Clinic III – Norwegian Driving in Cart

    The third horse in this Nurtural Bit-to-Bitless clinic for riding and driving was a Norwegian Fiord named 'Deer Country Dawna.' She is driven here by Diana Calder -- using her usual bit. As Diana works Dawna in the bit, watch two things: (A) how well they completed the task (their performance) and (B) how calm and responsive the horse is (their relationship.) Then we fit Dawna for the first time ever to the Nurtural Bitless Bridle. This is a riding bridle with no blinders. It is important that the bridle is fitted correctly, leaving room to easily release.

His owner, Doug, rode him around the Spirit of the Horse Ring in a bit, then got off, removed the bit and turned him over to 15 year-old Stephanie. Steph put on the Nurtural Bitless Bridle and soon had Promise doing circles and halts and performing as if he had been ridden bitless for years.

  • It’s a new world. It’s a new day!

    That's the theme song that played as these young riders showed how well school horses can behave in a Nurtural bitless bridle. Maybe it truly is a new day - when people realize all they can do with horses ... by removing the bit! Three times a day for 10 days , these young riders and horses put on amazing shows in the Spirit of the Horse Ring at Toronto's Royal Winter Fair! These are school kids, most with only 1-2 years riding lessons. These are school horses who had only ever been to one show.
