We have been competing bitless in dressage events for three years. Most of the events we have attended have been organised by CROWN Riding Club who run mixed bitted / bitless classes. We love attending their shows because it really doesn’t matter what your horse has or doesn’t have on their head – it’s all […]

We did our very first local horse show. He won 2 1st place and 1 2nd place Ribbon. We did walk jog class in western pleasure and he did horsemanship. So proud of him, as he a OTTB, and he did it all bitless.
I hope you’ll accept our bit less entry! We show jumped all year bridleless and are hoping we qualified for year end awards!
The shows at Rattlewood are very open to bitless! Depending on the judge I either get a comment or “on the bit” underlined but barely marked down. Usually a 6+ and they give ribbons because we have always placed high!
Saint Sonia and I came third in our first ever dressage test. Only bitless competitor. We also did two rounds of low level showjumping. Masters Games. Unofficial test. Very proud.
Hori and I have been out competing bitless in Dumfries and Galloway all summer while on holiday at various events including showing, working hunter, arena eventing and combined training. Now we are back home in Edinburgh and hope to go out bitless next season
First place awarded with 91%! Riding bitless was very much encouraged and points were deducted if you rode in a bit. Very proud of my boy as first time ridden bitless at an event and out of the home arena and first time out since starting to lose his eyesight in one eye.
