People are always asking whether to bit or not to bit. Here is an article that will help you make up your own mind and if you ask yourself what you think your horse would prefer you'll probably come up with a satisfactory answer. Be warned that there are photographs of dissection when you open this link.

An article about my work in the Daily Mail by Netia Walker brought this subject to a wider audience. The lovely horse Jago who is pictured here helped in spreading the word with his gentle insights and loving nature. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6563011/Can-really-learn-tax
THOUGHTS ON HOW OUR ENERGY AFFECTS THE WAY HORSES LEARN AND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RELATIONSHIP & TRAINING Article by Safaya Alexandra Salter
'The Path of the Horse' A film by Stormy May. A brave and honest piece of work - be prepared to be rocked out of your comfort zone, but a 'must view' in my opinion.
'Naked Liberty' by Carolyn Resnick. A great read to understand wild horse herd dynamics
'Free Riding' by Shuna Clark an amazingly inspirational book on riding without a bridle (although it's not a 'how to' book). It was out of print when I last looked but if you can get hold of a copy it's well worth the search.
'Words of Truth and Horses' by Michael Bevilacqua - and anything at all by this man, he has a real connection with horses and is totally without ego.
'How Horses Learn' by Dr Debbie Marsden - a scientific look at how horses learn but without the energy and intuition aspect. Interesting and useful reading.
