Bitless Bridle by Two Horse Tack: Product Review
Not too long ago, I wrote a blog post on why I made the switch to bitless with my horses. And honestly, I haven’t looked back—every horse I have can be ridden safely without a bit.
I was recently asked to review one of the bitless bridles from Two Horse Tack. This is a small company based in Kentucky who specializes in making custom beta biothane tack, all made in the USA.
I chose to review the two-in-one bitless bridle and ordered it in purple since that’s my four-year-old daughter’s favorite color– I planned to let her use the bridle as well. It’s called a ‘two-in-one’ bridle because it comes with an extra piece that enables you to use it as a sidepull or a bitless bridle with crossunder straps.
The cool thing about Two Horse Tack’s products is that you can choose from quite a few different colors, even camouflage or ‘reflective day glo’. You can also add bling to most of the items if that’s more your style.
The bitless bridle comes with stainless steel hardware that is guaranteed not to rust and is fully adjustable at the cheeks, nose band, and throat latch. The standard stitching on the bridles is white, but you can also order black at no extra cost. Additionally, there are several different styles of reins in matching colors that you can order to go with your bitless bridle.
When I received the bridle with matching reins in the mail, I was honestly impressed with just the quality of it. It’s not cheap-made like some of the tack I’ve seen out there. And if you’ve never used beta biothane, it’s really a great alternative to leather. It’s softer and more pliable than leather– plus it doesn’t dry out and it cleans up very easily.
The two-in-one bitless bridle is very similar in looks to Dr. Cook’s bitless bridle (which I also own), with just a few minor differences. One difference is obviously the extra piece which is basically a throat latch which lets you use the bridle as a sidepull.
I tried the bitless bridle first on Lee Lee and hopped on her bareback. I used it as a bitless bridle (not the sidepull) since this is what I’ve ridden her in before. Lee Lee will let me know right away if she doesn’t like a bridle. She has TMJ issues and does not tolerate a bit. She is picky about some hackamores as well. Needless to say, Lee Lee did great in the bitless bridle.
Then, I took my daughter to our local round-up club’s ‘play night’ where she competed in leadline barrel racing, pole bending, and flags on our older mare, Kady. I let her use the bitless bridle and just walked in front of her instead of leading Kady this time. Kady did great in the bridle as well.
So all in all, I really liked the two-in-one bitless bridle made by Two Horse Tack. And I really don’t have anything negative to say about it. It comes at a good price ($60 for the basic bridle), it’s well-made, and it worked great for my horses!
Note: I received the two-in-one bitless bridle from Two Horse tack at no cost in exchange for an honest review of it. I was under no obligation to give a ‘good’ review of the product.
