1-2 April 2017 - Bitless Riding Module 1 - Safety and Confidence

Make the first step to learn how to create a strong mental and emotional connection with your horse, that will give you more control than any bit could. During this course you will get all the knowledge to get started safely and methodically. 


You will learn about:

  • How to create solid mental connection with your horse
  • How to create a light and responsive horse
  • Tools and different bridles
  • Safety and emotional fitness
  • Preparation on the ground – what and why

In the practical part we will go step by step through ground exercises and then take these skills on to riding. Topics will be:

  • Creating lightness in the horse – yielding to pressure
  • Navigating obstacles on the ground to create mutual communication: tarp, jumps, poles,…
  • Help the horses to become braver and more emotionally fit through confidence games
  • How to use a bitless bridle – rein effects


It is useful to have attended the Introductory Seminar, as it will give a large insight into the Theory and Philosophy, but is not mandatory. You should be a safe rider in all 3 gaits (Niveau Galop 4) and your horse should be at least 4 years old and started.
