Do you want to find out first hand why so many of us are treading a new path? Look no further!
I offer Taster sessions for both Bitless and Bareback riding with a range of kit to try with my horse, or your own.
We have a number of different styles of bit less bridles you can try , and have the option to ride completely bareback or with our Deluxe imported bareback pad.
I also offer a unique Trial Service for the innovative treeless Total Contact Saddle.

Are you interested in bitless riding but are worried you will have '' no brakes or control'? Have you been told 'bits are only as harsh as the hands they are in'? Sadly, they are not.
Strapping a horse down with restrictive bridles, bits, gadgets and heavy saddles can cause, in our opinion, more problems than it all allegedly 'solves'.
There is absolutely no scientific data anywhere, to my knowledge, that shows horses are safer and more ' controllable' with a bit.
However, there is a wealth of proven scientific data which shows how harmful and painful bits can be to horses, including causing real damage to tissue, bone, teeth and nerves , panic and fear related behaviours, and physical and emotional pain and trauma.
If a horse feels comfortable, and above all safe, they can, and will, try as hard as possible for you.
For definitive and reliable research on the negative effects of the bitting of horses check out: 'Metal in the Mouth', by respected US Vet Dr Robert Cook.
Metal bits are a Bronze Age instrument, before that humans used ropes or pieces of wood fixed in the horses mouth, to guide and control their movement and direction.
This is the 21st Century. As a species humans have access to qualitative scientific studies and data to support the fact that biting does not actually 'solve' anything.
Shouldn't the way we treat our horses now reflect this ???
In the 11 years I've been introducing people & horse to bitless riding I've never had anyone leave a session dissatisfied, and never had a horse who wasn't more relaxed, calmer and responsive than before we started. FACT.
But don't take it from me!I know it works ! Listen to your horse !!!
