Why We Love This

The Dr. Cook® Beta Bitless Bridle was developed by Dr. Robert Cook after years of research, inspiration, and perspiration! The Dr. Cook® Bitless Bridles are marketed all over the world and used in all disciplines. It is the most accepted and trusted 'bit free' bridle on the market. The Bitless Bridle allows the rider gentle, effective control and clear communication with painless pressure that is distributed around the whole of the horse’s head. Made from beta, a leather-like synthetic material that is composed of a nylon core with a vinyl coating, this bridle is impervious to dirt and sweat and will give you years of use with no maintenance required.

Made in the USA.

Dr Cook's Bitless Bridle Beta Reins sold separately.

 

Favorite Features

  • Allows you to communicate effectively with your horse via gentle pressure instead of a bit
  • The most accepted and trusted "bit free" bridle on the market
  • Beta material is durable, requires no maintenance, and has an attractive, leather-like appearance

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I bought this for my daughter and her horse. They both love it and her horse has been extremely responsive to it. Easy to clean. Easy to put on and our horse loves that she gets to go on grazing hacks with my daughter in tow!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped releasing I bought this bridle after my boy had tooth surgery and was off work or bitless for 2 weeks. My horse liked until after about 4 weeks when it stopped releasing pressure. I have not used it since. Very disappointing experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well, color is fun I haven't ridden in it yet but ordered the cob size for my petite thoroughbred and it fits her well. Got the teal just because black was out of stock but it's actually kind of cute and fun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bridle! I’ve ridden my horse in this bridle for about a month now and we LOVE it! I think the communication is effective and gentle and the material/placement doesn’t seem to bug my horse. I used to ride in a Micklem but the placement of the bridle around the bridge of the nose seemed to tick him off. I do currently ride in clip-on reins so they do feel “heavy” at the rings where they connect and that’s a bit different from almost any other bridle. I think I’ve adjusted to it though so our feel is getting much better. Overall I’m highly satisfied and love that the material will be super easy to clean!! (Note: I have a quarter horse and I got the regular horse size bridle.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this to use on my mare who just didnt seem happy at all in her bit, constantly tossing her head and pulling this way and that. She is so much more relaxed and happy in this bridle. She is naturally a little speedy, but I have not felt out of control at all. Rode my gelding in it just to try and he was also good. They really seem to like it. I think I will buy the horse size for my gelding and ride them both in it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have used only this bridle for 25 years Never was a fan of bits and started using just rope halters. Discovered & tried Dr. Cooks and have used nothing else since. Raised and taught my Arab from 2 year old to 12 years and he has never had a bit in his mouth. Recently was forced to give him up, however the bridle didn't go with him but new owner got one and also is pleased with him/it. I now have a 14 yo TB and he has been in a Dr. Cooks about 10 years trail rides with no problems.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from assembly required? i bought this in blue for my horse because i love the one i have for my little mare. i was disappointed to open the box and random buckles are buckled to not the right straps. the photo below shows my cob sized dr cooks (right) fully assembled and the blue one is exactly how it came out of the box. the noseband is connected to the left face adjustment piece. the right face strap is connected to the bottom of where the chin strap os supposed to be buckled. as you can see the crossover reins are put on the same sides they originate and do not cross over like they are supposed to. its a huge mess that i get to take it all apart and put it back together. im so glad i bought one of these before so i knew something was wrong and i just didnt go put it on my horse. im sure it will be a great product i love my other one but how it was shipped is ludacris

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for retirement life! I've only ever ridden my 26yo TB in his copper french link loose ring snaffle (what a mouthful!), save once or twice in a pelham when I was first trying him way back when, so I was curious about using bitless bridles. Jester is retired now and since we do mostly hacking/trails, I decided I wanted something a little more relaxed (plus easier to grab snacks in). I had ridden him in halters around the barn before but wanted something a little more secure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it! I had used a Dr. Cook's bitless bridle on my previous horse and he did exceptionally well in it. So I decided to give it a try with my Arab/Paint cross to see if he would do well. He is so much more relaxed with this bridle? He listens very well and had never tried to move faster than I want him to. I am very happy with the quality of the bridle. It is easy to put on and take off and no bit makes my horse very happy. I highly recommed this bridle!
