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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dr Cooks Beta Bitless Bridle Hawk so appreciates the gentleness of the bridle yet follows the reining commands that is asked of him. I've only had him for 3 years whom I bought him off my friend. She said that the people that owned and trained him before used a harsh but which he has a permanent laceration across his tongue. So, you can see why I love this Bitless bridle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking bridle I have only been able to use this a few times, but it is a nice looking bridle and my horse was very receptive to it. Also, it isn't leather, so cruelty free!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a fan of the faux leather Very functional and my horse is happy with this compared to the hackamore we were using. The faux leather is very plasticy and doesn't look fabulous. In retrospect I wish I had upgraded to the leather headstall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have to start by saying I have a great horse, but he took so well, and so quickly to this bitless bridle that I have to give kudos to the great engineering as well! I went from a broken snaffle bit to bitless with this bridle, and there was almost no learning curve for both horse and rider. I got the synthetic leather version, and absolutely love the no-maintenance material. Sorry to gush, but I'm really happy with the whole thing!
