Boomerang competes in the Extreme Cowboy Race in a Dr. Cook Bitless Bridle

Chesapeake Boomerang is a 2003 registered Chincoteague Pony that is owned and trained by Kyley DiLuigi.
I used clicker training to get Boomerang ready for Craig Cameron's Extreme Cowboy Race held at the Horse World Expo in Feb 2011. Many people were skeptical that we could master western rollbacks, flying lead changes, sidepassing, and more without the aide of a bit in a time frame of 6 weeks. But we proved everyone wrong, because you can do anything (except hurt your horse's mouth) in a Dr. Cook's Bitless Bridle that you can do with a bit!

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! The mare is willing and easy to ride, and goes off the seat and leg aids instead of fussing with a bit. She is ridden in a snaffle for competition, but we're looking forward to the day when the bitless is approved for dressage shows.

Versatile Horse and Rider competitionCathie Hatrick Anderson competing at the Equine Affaire in Springfield, MA.

 What can you do in a Dr. Cook Bitless Bridle? Pretty much anything you want! Here we have Cathie Hatrick Anderson and her quarter horse, Ruger, competing in the Versatile Horse and Rider competition at the Equine Affaire in Springfield, MA on November 11, 2011.

Cathie and Ruger took 11th out of 30 competitors, which is pretty darn good considering her horse was only 5 years old, half the age of most of the other more experienced horses.  Well done, Cathie and Ruger!

Red goes bitless for the first timeRED (our Rocky Mountain 3 year old Gelding) trying the Dr Cook Bitless Bridle for the first time. AMAZING.... he was much calmer, turned, stopped, did everything he should do in a bit.... but 1000 times better. He was relaxed, ears forward, head high.... He will never have metal in his mouth again!!! Thanks Dr Cook!
