Overview

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.

Reins not included. Dr Cook's Bitless Bridle Beta Reins sold separately.

Reviews
Dr. Cook® Beta Bitless Bridle is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pressure is key After using this bridle for a year, the Dr. cook beta bridle does not release pressure as it should. I ignored the problem thinking it was something I was doing for three months even had got a trainer who helped me realize the bridle was not releasing the pressure. My trainer and I even got three other opinions along with riding in other bitless bridles. My gelding became really reactive to the bridle throwing his head, simi rearing even stopped turning left or right but would give to pressure perfectly in a halter/different bitless bridle on the ground and in saddle perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable, looks like real leather Overall good bridle. You can pull back and have breaks, a little hard to turn, but expected with no bit in mouth

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great! My gelding loves it ! I haven't owned Henry long but it was obvious he did not like even a mild snaffle bit so purchased the Beta Bitless Bridle - all the head tossing stopped! He responds really well to it - although being an ex race horse im not sure this would be enough to bring him to a stop if he were in a full gallop. I think this bitless bridle is the way to go. Ill never go back to a regular bridle - so much kinder for the horse. Love that this is easily cleaned as it is not leather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the feel of this! My horse is now a happy horse! Such an easy transition too!

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.)
Date published: 2020-05-06
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.
