Allow the rider CHOICE - Allow Bitless Bridles in ALL horse sport
Please sign our petition to support NHTEC's (Norfolk Horse Training and Equitation Club) request for a rule change to allow EVERY rider/handler the ‘Choice’ to compete in ALL UK competitions in a bitless bridle. We ask for fairness and for inclusion in all equestrian sport for ‘bitless’ horses based on the evidence that some horses do not cope with the bit in their mouth – the mouth is a delicate and sensitive structure and sensitive to pain. We believe the RIDER should choose the bridle, bitted or bitless, that best suits their horse for optimum health and performance.

Please sign and share! Get the UK to be the first country to allow bitless riding in nationally recognized competitions!
