In October, 2008, at the Certified Horsemanship Association's International Conference, Dr. Cook conducted a unique experiment. It demonstrated that the performance of four horses immediately and significantly improved, within four minutes, when their jointed snaffle bridle was replaced with a crossunder bitless bridle. Four riding school horses that were being ridden in a crossunder bitless bridle for the very first time, completed two four-minute exercise tests, first in a snaffle bridle, then in the BitlessBridle. The entire experiment (in better quality video) is available on DVD. Contact our Customer Service department for more information (866.235.0938)
