LightRider Bitless Bridle - Rope Natural

LightRider Natural Bridle


Ideal for educating, trail riding, endurance, horsemanship, ponies and pleasure riding. The rope LightRider Bridles give your horse the most comfort and you the most versatility of use as a halter (to tie solid with a lead rope) and as a bitless bridle. This is the original design Cynthia Cooper started with and the one she uses most herself for comfort and convenience.

Unique Chinstrap:

The purpose of the soft webbing chin strap is to help the noseband stay in place when pressure is applied to the reins - this keeps the noseband in place, to give clear and direct communication.

When rein pressure is applied the chinstrap becomes snug but does not over-tighten due to the type of webbing used, so most of the pressure is on the top of the nose. This bridle is usually well accepted by sensitive horses. The bridle can also be used like a straight sidepull by clipping the chinstrap and noseband rings together (recommended if your horse hasn't experienced a chinstrap before).    

Zig Zag Tuff Tack Rope10mm marine grade polyester rope reinsComes with a choice of either black or brown/gold zig zag 10mm marine grade polyester double braid rope reins to match the size and colour of the bridle.  These reins are designed for lightness and correct maximum release of the chinstrap.  A top quality soft, flexible rope; these rope reins feel lovely to hold. They give a fast rein 'release' (slide) to reward your horse quickly.

They come with solid brass (stainless steel available on request) swivel rein clips to match the bridle hardware. The rope reins are one piece for leading in the bridle (not suited for tying solid unless clips are removed) and doing groundwork before riding.

Mini/Small Pony=2m reins, Pony/Cob=2.6m (100") reins, Full=3m (118") reins, W'Blood/Draft=3.6m (142")reins. Simple contact me if you require longer reins.

    Polyester Rope Qualitites: 

    • Polyester is the material that most marine ropes are made from and is used on the outside of climbing ropes to protect them from abrasion. High-tech ropes use polyester to protect them from wear and UV light. 
    • Firm yet soft and durable (unlike cheap polyethylene and polypropylene ropes typically seen in hardware stores), polyester will not harden or break down with age. It is not affected by water, will not rot, mold or mildew, and is resistant to most acids and oils.  
    • Knots tied in polyester will hold tight, but can always be undone should adjustment be required. Polyester can be washed with normal household detergents in warm water. 
    • Colour fast - will have only minor fading over the long life of the rope. 
    • Low abrasion - polyester produces less friction so that means a greatly reduced chance of rope burn and less abrasion on your horse’s skin. 
    • Stronger and longer life - Cheap polypropylene halter cords and webbing have a much lower breaking strain (about 30% less) and lose another 30% per year through age. Polyester ropes lose only 3% per year making equipment that can be relied on for much longer.

    Hi Libby,

    We are fairly new to the Bitless world of riding but both my Thoroughbred and I are enjoying it. We have been trail riding and show jumping (for fun) & generally worked in our new Bitless bridle. I feel that he enjoys being ridden more because my clumsiness isn't hurting his mouth & he fiddles less with no bit in his mouth. I no longer use our former bridle with a bit.

    Overall I'm happy with my purchase. I love the way it looks and I love using it. I am getting better at putting it on as its slightly different to a rope halter.
