Welcome to Bitless & Beautiful
The Bitless & Beautiful mission is to promote a more just and humane world for horse and rider alike. We seek to eliminate the abuse and cruelty that our beloved equine partners suffer daily, often in the pursuit of sport and the glory of winning in competitions.
We at Bitless & Beautiful believe that the majority of equestrians ride, train and compete for the love of the horse and that, once educated, we humans will enthusiastically embrace an approach that empowers us to work without abusive punishment, without equipment that causes pain and fear, and with more attention to the welfare of the horse.
We hope that, by developing, producing, compiling and promoting resources that support the Bitless & Beautiful mission, we can help ourselves and our global community identify and implement the respect that these horses deserve, as our exploited and underserved partners for centuries.
We also understand that competition is a big part of the equestrian experience, and with our IROBE registry, we seek to support athletes who don’t want to compromise their commitment to compassionate training just to comply with arcane and outdated competition regulations. We want to be the change and support the mavericks forging a path toward a more inclusive platform for equine sports.
Explore our website and learn how horses and humans around the world are tapping into the power of compassion here. And please send us your stories so we can share!
For August, we are featuring Fiona's journey to a bitless, whipless, spurless experience with her human, Lucie!
