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. 

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

Made in USA

Reins sold separately.

Dr Cook's Beta Bitless Bridle is rated 4.55 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy horse I bought this bridle because my horse has a loose sensitive tooth that the bit would occasionally bump and cause discomfort. With the bit less bridle she is relaxed and responsive. She adjusted to it quickly and worked well in it the first ride. The Beta material is a bit rubbery feeling but cleans easily. My only complaint is there were no directions with it when it arrived and I had to figure it out by looking at pictures.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Quality I was really satisfied with the quality and fit of the bridle. However, neither him or I liked the way it put pressure on his poll.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Small There was no oversize option available and the "horse" size was very small. Back it went. I was disappointed as I was really looking forward to trying this product. :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality, horse loves it I researched, read, and talk to other bitless riders for months and went back and forth on the Dr. Book bitless bridle. I decided to try it based on SmartPak's great return policy. I had nothing to lose while I tried on one of my horses who is just not happy in even a gentle bit. I knew the first time we put it on that it would be good for him. He was happy, didn't throw his head around, walked forward with no fuss and stopped instantly with the very lightest pressure. The plus is that it looks beautiful on him. I have more to learn to teach him how to respond outside the ring but so far, we love it. I gave it 4 stars for price - everything is expensive now but it's bit high considering I had to buy reins separately.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but... My horse responds very well to the bridle, he started to collect himself easily, turn on a little tug of the rein. But the worst thing about it is when the horse did something correct, you cannot give him a full release- the beta material sticks and the only way you can release the pressure on your horse is pushing the rein thru the ring by hand (you have to do this at walk/halt of course or dismount which is very uncomfortable)- you cannot just "give" the reins to your horse... this disappointed me a lot and I am now waiting on a leather one to try it out!P. S. it has a "dr robert cook" engraved on a beta plate on the top of the bridle which surprised me. The quality of the engraved letters is bad..
