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

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality construction Since I bought my first Bitless Bridle 12 years ago, I have use them on all of my horses, even my mini. I even use them to drive my Quarter horse on trails.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Using a Bit Again! After trying many different bits that my horse would just fight, I thought I would give this a try and my horse is so happy I did! Such a great effective yet gentle product. The beta material is super easy to care for and comfortable on the horse. You can do anything in this bridle that you can in a bit. I honestly love it so much and so does my horse!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Really happy to have a bitless bridle -- it is much more comfortable for the horse than the standard halter and two lead ropes! The horses respond very well, there is no cold, uncomfortable bit in the mouth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product! The bitless bridle is the best bridle I have ever used. It has always been my preference and I believe the horses prefer it as well. I have never had any problems with my horses getting away from me, they respond to me extremely well, and they actually look forward to going out onto the trails! One of the most important pieces of tack in my barn!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great concept, but does not release. I was very excited to try this product, but because of the way the rings are placed on the noseband, it does not release. The crossunders get stuck. I have found that if the rings were placed different, the release would actually work. I ended up returning this product and creating my own that gives immediate release and my horse is much happier!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted. This replaces a traditional "side pull". My 3 year old is very happy in it. I'm happy he's happy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased! It is so refreshing to do business with a company, such as SmartPak, that still knows true customer service! Very quick & eager to help. Super quick shipping! :)The bridle was just as I thought it would be. Sizing was just right for our petite Arab (size: small/Cob). No breaking Beta in, which is so nice. The gelding this is for is a very sensitive little guy. We have been riding him w/ just a halter because he fusses too much with a bit. Not knowing his history - we opened our barn to him as a rescue - we have had bigger fish to fry than worry about his fussing w/ the bit. After fitting it, we did a little intro work of his new bridle from the ground. He seemed to understand & respond very quickly & willingly. Then a little ride to see how things would go... All smiles! I think from him too. So as of now, we give it 2 thumbs up.

    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...
