We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The Dr. Cook's Beta Bitless Bridle was developed by Dr. Robert Cook after years of research, inspiration and perspiration!  The Dr. Cook® Bitless Brides 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 to communicate by painless pressure that is distributed around the whole of the head. 

Made in USA

Favorite Features

  • Made from Beta which is a leather-like synthetic composed of a nylon core with a vinyl coating making it impervious to dirt and sweat and will give you years of use with no maintenance required
  • The material stays supple in freezing weather and doesn't dry out or get brittle with age
  • Beta is durable and easy to clean - just dunk in a bucket of water, swish around and hang to dry!
  • Material has a slightly grainy surface and low-sheen surface, which gives it a leather-like appearance

    Dr Cook's Beta Bitless Bridle is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 54.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Transformation!! I just purchased a 7yo QH who previously sat mostly unused at a backyard one horse home. She was originally trained out West and I found a photo of her from a past owner showing her in a relatively severe western shank with a martingale. She hadn’t had a dental in at least four years (the backyard owner had no idea), and her daughter could only get the bit in the horse’s mouth with a bunch of treats. I decided to try the Dr. Cook bridle. I spent one session on the ground working on bending and giving to the pressure and then hopped on the next session. My mare was AMAZING! She allowed me to put the bridle on with no issues both times. She did not toss her head once. She wasn’t incredibly responsive and I could keep my hands soft. Stopped on a dime, turns were perfect, and transitions between gaits was smooth and easy! Never using a bit on her again. The beta material seems well made and easily cleanable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think it's going to work good First of all, the reigns don't come with this. You'd think they would include them and I did not see the fine print that said they weren't included. So I was a little bumbed about that. Especially since I bought a red bridle! Now with my brown western reigns. But aside from that the horse seemed to accept it well. One time on a trail ride before we got started the horse broke the bridle and I had to ride in a halter. I was a little nervous at first because getting her broke was a bit of a challange. She originally couldn't handle a bit. She also is gaited but not a good gaited horse. But when I rode with the halter she seemed to gait better and had no trouble accepting the halter as her substitute bridle. Seemed more relaxed. That's what lead me to try this bridle. Plus the fact the bit would give her sores in the corners of her mouth. The only thing I don't know is how well a horse that wants to bolt would be controlled in this. I saw the manufactures website where a horse spooked in the ring and they said how easy it was to get it under control. Didn't look too easy to me, looked like they got lucky. But for what we do, just trail riding, I'm hoping it works out. The material seems nice. I also bought the synthetic because of complaints that the leather reign attachments would get stuck. Did not seem to have that problem with the synthetic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bitless! Love this! Bought the cob size for my POA and he rides 10 times better than with a bit and is much happier!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I waited way too long to buy this. I kept thinking my 8yo quartet horse just had attitude issues.... it was the bit! When I tried him with the bitless bridle it was like being on a different horse. It has totally changed our riding experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Bridle I am enjoying using it and my horse seems to be a "Happy Horse"! He likes and chews as we ride and afterwards!
