We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional 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 4.6667 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Going from a snaffle to this bitless bridle has been an easy and successful transition. It works well for my horse who used to be a lesson horse and was constantly rooting and pulling her head forward even with no contact. She no longer does this and I've had no problems with steering/stopping her for wtc and small jumps.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the bridle, but not the matching reins I purchased the Beta Bitless Bridle and matching Beta Reins. I love the bridle and my horse, who has never used a bitless bridle, immediately responded positively too it. The downfall is that the matching reins are an awkward length and much too short. I'm going to return both the Beta Bitless Bridle and Beta Reins for Leather ones because the western reins are much longer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This Bitless Bridle is awesome! I didn't really want to buy it but I thought, "Oh well, If I don't like it I can just send it back". (They do this free of charge). But I don't want to send it back now!! My thirteen year old girl rides her Appy mare in it all the time and she does great! Even with Barrel racing and jumping!! She needs a lot of control and I DID NOT think it would have enough control for her (She's pretty head strong) but this works great! She use to toss her head a lot with a Hackamore but she doesn't AT ALL with this bridle. It's very easy to clean, seems VERY durable and fairly easy to put on. It just takes a little more time to put on because of there being two chin straps. It's a really good design and I would definitely recommend this product. Well worth the money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to using traditional bridle with After just one day I had the same horse under me as I did using a bridle. She is great out on trails and just as responsive doing dressage with this bridle. (I got this bridle because she had dental issues and a canker sore she was recovering from) Normally this is a forward, and sometimes hysterical, mare, but she is obedient and comfortable with the Bitless Bridle.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
