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 Love It I bought this bridle about a month ago, wasn't sure it would work. Let me tell you, my horse loves it and is ready to go riding anytime now. Took a couple times of riding to get it adjusted right, but once that was accomplished, she responds good. Will never use a bit again. Thanks you Dr. Cook. When my horse is happy, so am I. Ordering from Smartpak was easy and shipping was fast. I love their return policy, if not satisfied, return it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Beta Bitless Bridle I am so glad I made this purchase. Both my horse and I love this bridle. Best part is he no longer fights me when I bridle him. I love the fact that this is offered in Beta as I try to use synthetic whenever possible. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impeccable Customer Service, Incredible product I recently decided to try out the Bitless Bridle on my mare because she was experiencing discomfort with the bit. I had tried numerous different bits, even a sliding ring snaffle, yet neither of us were ever content. I found myself just riding with a halter instead of a bit until now. The Bitless Bridle has worked wonders on the riding experience for the both of us. SmartPak also has incredible customer service, so I felt comfortable trying something new knowing that I would have an easy return process if the bridle did not work out. Thank you SmartPak !!

    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!

    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...
