Dressage in a Dr. Cook's Bitless Bridle: 7 year old PRE Andalusian mare, Bryssa, is ridden by a 65 year old amateur in the Dr Cook Bitless Bridle and they both love it!

She is ridden in a snaffle for competition, but we're looking forward to the day when the bitless is approved for dressage shows.
